Snow began falling across Connecticut Wednesday evening, causing slick driving conditions statewide.
State police reported dozens of accidents on state highways, including a tanker truck that rolled over on Route 3 in East Hartford. The truck was carrying milk. No one was injured in the crash.
Several inches of accumulation are possible before the snow changes to a wintry mix and rain across most of the state.
A winter weather advisory was posted for Litchfield, Hartford, Tolland and Windham Counties through Thursday evening. Higher elevations in the northewestern part of the state could see as many as 8 inches of snow. Areas north of Interstate 84 could see 2-5 inches before the snow changes over to an icy mix and rain Wednesday night. Southern parts of the state could get two inches of snow before the precipitation switches over to rain.
High wind warnings have been posted for coastal Connecticut. Wind gusts as strong as 60 miles per hour are possible. Heavy rain will continue Thursday morning before finally coming to an end sometime after noon.
