Snow and accidents are making the morning commute in Connecticut difficult for a second-straight day and schools across the state are closed as a large winter storm begins its exit from New England. Interstate 95 northbound in Clinton was closed for several hours Friday morning because of a jackknifed tractor-trailer. The highway has reopened.

Several other highway accidents were reported. Bradley International Airport has no major delays. Metro-North trains are running on schedule, but the Waterbury branch has switched to bus service because of mechanical problems.

Connecticut Light & Power reports about 7,000 outages in the state, including more than 2,200 in Clinton. United Illuminating has only a few outages. The storm is expected dump 4 to 8 inches of snow in much of Connecticut through early Friday afternoon.
