Messy weather hits during commute

WATERBURY, Conn. (WTNH)– We’re looking at a messy morning for weather and it’s hitting just in time for your commute.

News 8’s Noelle Gardner has a look at condition in our mobile weather lab. Heading up to Torrington this morning it was a nice clear drive until they got to Waterbury where it started to snow.

Some things to keep in mind before you head out this morning:

– Clear snow and ice from all windows and lights even the hood and roof before driving.

– Leave plenty of room for stopping.

– Pay attention

– Don’t try to out drive the conditions.

– Remember the posted speed limits are for dry pavement.

– Use brakes carefully.

– Brake early. It takes more time and distance to stop in snow and ice.
