OLD SAYBROOK, Conn. (WTNH)– News 8’s Brian Spyros was in our mobile weather lab reporting on conditions on the Interstate 95 corridor.
The snow is coming down pretty good, in fact, it’s reducing visibility a bit as you drive so keep that in mind.
The snow really isn’t accumulating yet but here’s the issue, all the moisture that was on the roads from the melting that took place yesterday is still there.
The temperature is gong to drop as we head through the day so basically the wet roads, sidewalks and driveways will start to freeze and then you’ll have have snow covering all the ice. And when you have snow covering the ice, it makes it misleading for drivers because they may not realize how slippery the conditions are.
As you head out the door this morning and through the day keep that in mind , the temperatures are going to drop and everything is going to freeze.
As a reminder, make sure to leave enough distance between you and the car in front of you and be sure to slow down when you come to a stop sign or traffic light , the ice under the snow can make stopping a little tricky.
Be sure to take it easy out there this morning and in the coming hours.
