Snow, ice made messy morning commute

Posted: Updated:

Icy precipitation affected travel through the northeast corridor on Monday. Commuters were told to slow down and leave extra time for their morning ride to work.

Some schools in Connecticut reported delays, but schools in Rhode Island and Massachusetts seemed to open on time.

The storm that crept across the country bringing snow, ice and miserable road conditions hit New England Monday morning as the wintry weather continued to make it hard for air travelers.

Online air traffic site Flightaware.com says more than 1,000 flights were canceled for Monday following days of icy, snowy weather from Texas to the East Coast. A winter storm warning was in effect for Baltimore and Washington, D.C., where up to a quarter inch of ice accumulated.

Heavy snow fell Sunday in the Mid-Atlantic, with more than 8 inches reported in Philadelphia and a foot in nearby Newark, Del.

The morning snow in Rhode Island transitioned to sleet and freezing rain, making it a very dicey morning commute.

As temperatures warmed into the 40s through the afternoon, the wintry mix became all rain.  Storm Team 10 meteorologist Kelly Love said another chance of snow showers arrives on Tuesday.
