TOLLAND, Conn. (AP) _ Slick roads across Connecticut prompted school delays across the state and forced state police to close Interstate 84 in both directions in Tolland for nearly two hours.

Several tractor-trailers got stuck on I-84 in Tolland early Tuesday morning after a light snowfall made the highway slippery. The road reopened at about 4:30 a.m.

Many school districts delayed openings for 90 minutes to two hours, including Bridgeport and Torrington.

The National Weather Service has issued a wind chill advisory for most of the state until Wednesday morning, with wind chills reaching as low as 15 below zero.

The Metro-North rail service reported delays of up to 20 minutes Tuesday for westbound travel between Bridgeport and Stamford because of the weather. More than a dozen flights at Bradley International Airport were canceled.
