Travelers wary of hitting the road, sky ahead of upcoming snowstorm


WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (WTNH) — With the holiday coming to a close, Connecticut residents will soon be heading back home.

Some travelers expressed that they’re worried they’ll get stuck driving in Sunday’s snow or worse — see flight delays.

“I am supposed to be flying out on Monday, so hopefully it’s all right on Monday, but I don’t know, it’s not sounding too good,” said BJ Pendleton.

To ease some of those fears, CTDOT already started salting roadways in preparation for the storm. Officials are suggesting that residents return home sooner than planned — if possible.

“The first several snow events that we have, it’s like bumper cars out there,” CTDOT’s Kevin Nursic said. “It’s never a good decision to be out there. If you have the ability early to come home a little early or wait until we clear up the roads and come home after that.”

A Winter Storm Watch is in effect for several continues starting on Sunday and continuing into Monday and for some parts of the state, Tuesday.

Snow is expected to developing late in the morning, continue through the afternoon, and then change into a wintry mix along the shoreline.
