CONNECTICUT (WTNH) — Crews across the state worked through the night to clear and treat roadways, but drivers are still encouraged to use caution when out Monday morning.
Storm Team 8 said there will be patchy areas of snow/mix that will tapering in the morning.
With lows around the freezing mark in the morning, some slippery spots are possible.
After the snow ends, the sky will be partly cloudy with highs around 38-43 degrees.
Crews around the state prepared for the wet, winter weather.
“We will be out as long as necessary to get the job done, but the morning commute could be tricky, so motorists should build in additional travel time for the morning so they can travel safely at a reduced speed,” a CT DOT official said.
Here are some things to remember to stay safe if you absolutely have to get on the road:
- Drive slowly.
- Increase follow distance.
- Accelerate and decelerate slowly.
- Build-in additional travel time.
If you don’t have to get on the road, the safest thing to do is stay home.
