Drivers could see slippery conditions during the Friday morning commute, as light snows are expected to continue in Connecticut through the afternoon.

As of 6:30 a.m., the state’s highways are operating normally and at full speed, according to the Connecticut Department of Transportation, but that could change.

Despite expected snow accumulations around one inch or less through most of the state, the National Weather Service is still warning drivers to be wary.

“Motorists should be prepared for the possibility of slippery roads and use caution while driving,” said the National Weather Service in a special weather statement early Friday morning.

All snow should be finished falling by noon, the NWS said.

Hamden and Stamford are the only towns, as of 7 a.m., with major school delays due to the storm. All Hamden and Stamford Public Schools will have a two-hour delay Friday. To stay up to date on school closings and delays, WTNH-8 has a list updated throughout the day.

Friday’s flurries are the first part of what is expected to be a two-part storm. Though Friday’s preview was minimal, the second half of the system, which is expected to land Saturday afternoon, could be the first major snow storm of the year.

AccuWeather is calling Saturday’s storm a blockbuster, set to hit the Midwest first and then “evolve into an all-out blizzard, cause roads to close and lead to scores of flight cancellations.”

Dangerous blizzard conditions with a foot or more of snow is forecast to fall from northern Pennsylvania to upstate New York and northern New England this weekend.

“Those who are on the road through the heart of the snow area will be at risk for becoming stranded for many hours and may have to face temperatures plummeting to life-threatening low levels,” AccuWeather said.

As the storm strengthens, winds are expected to cause major blowing and drifting snow where ice does not mix in.

A possibility of 40 inches is projected in parts of northern New England, with close to 30 inches expected to fall on parts of central and northern New York state.

There is the possibility of strong winds bringing down tree limbs enough to cause power outages.
