Digging out continues

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Connecticut residents will get a break from new fallen snow for a couple of days, but the lingering effects of the storms this week will delay school for some students.

Delays of up to two hours are reported at dozens of schools.

Wednesday’s storm delayed Gov. Dannel Malloy’s State of the State address, which was supposed to be delivered on the first day of the general assembly session. Malloy will address lawmakers today at noon.

Folks around the state will continue to shovel, dig, and remove the snow that piled up. In Hartford, a parking ban that was in effect overnight ended, and police threatened to tow any cars that remained in school parking lots.

In Windsor Lock, Bradley International Airport had 25 departure cancellations, 3 delayed departures, and 32 cancelled arrivals this morning.

The threat of snow for the next couple of days is out of the picture.

“We’re looking at quiet weather,” Storm Team 8 Meteorologist Gil Simmons said.

Another storm could bring a dusting to three inches of snow on Sunday.
