FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Snow continued to fall late Tuesday afternoon, blanketing roads and highways across Fairfield County as those who made it to work in the morning were beginning to head home.
The Winter Weather Advisory was extended in Fairfield County and southern Connecticut until 9 p.m., Tuesday, the National Weather Service said.
"Use caution and take it slow on CT highways & roads," the Connecticut State Police said via Twitter. "State Police have responded to 96 motor vehicle accidents so far today, 7 with injury."
Accumulations of 3 to 5 inches were possible, with snow falling into the evening and temperatures falling into the lower 20s. Visibility was reduced to a half-mile or less.
The snow was creating slippery conditions on roads and making for hazardous travel conditions, the National Weather Service warned.
