HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Dozens of flights in and out of Bradley International Airport have been canceled as Connecticut deals with a slow-moving storm expected to dump several inches of snow across much of the state.

Nearly 50 departures and 37 arrivals had been canceled as of midday on Monday at the airport north Hartford.

Next up are plunging temperatures to below zero later this week. And two more storms are expected from Thursday to Friday and Sunday to Monday.

Connecticut Department of Transportation spokesman Kevin Nursick says salt, sand and other road treatment supplies are not in jeopardy. And he says that with less than six weeks to spring, the storms are, in theory, winding down.

Still, he reminded, New England has “had some doozies in March.”
