STAMFORD, Conn. — Stamford was buried under heavy snow by Thursday afternoon, with meteorologists predicting up to 14 inches of the white stuff to fall across Fairfield County by the end of the day.
Connecticut State Police are warning that highways and roads are snow-covered and slippery — and visibility is poor with snow falling at a rate of 1 to 2 inches per hour. Temperatures are in the 20s — after a high near 60 on Wednesday — with 20 to 25 mph winds.
And besides, your destination is probably closed because of the severity of the storm. All schools and colleges are closed in Fairfield County and most City Halls and Town Halls, many major employers and malls are closed, too.
Traffic is very light on I-95 and I-84, according to the cameras for the Connecticut Department of Transportation.
