Drizzle combined with roadways which are below freezing led to multiple crashes and road closures on another busy travel day across New England.
Patchy freezing drizzle and areas of light snow will continue to develop into Sunday evening, which is a bad time for travelers returning home from their Thanksgiving holiday trips.
Although the precipitation is not expected to be heavy, it will reduce visibility and coat the roads enough to create some slick spots.
The worst of the freezing drizzle over central New England has passed as temperatures have warmed above freezing. Treated roadways will turn wet through the afternoon while secondary roads and untreated roads will remain slick.
Travel throughout central Massachusetts came to a halt on Sunday morning, according to the Massachusetts State Police. Interstate 290 near Worcester had been closed for a few hours due to several crashes, but it has since re-opened.
Throughout the remainder of the day as precipitation expands in coverage, travel on interstates 89, 91, 93 and 95 will turn slow at times from northern Vermont to Maine.
The snow can also cause delays at the airports in Worcester, Mass., Burlington, Vt., and Bangor, Maine.
Closer to the coast, including in Portland, Maine, snow showers will mix with rain showers.
While snow is not expected to accumulate on the roads in that area, the precipitation could cause some delays at Portland International Jetport.
For area ski resorts, the timing of the snow is welcome, as many are open during the holiday weekend.
Portions of Maine can have 1 to 3 inches of snow on Sunday, while amounts across the rest of northern New England will generally be 1 inch or less.
Another storm system could bring rain, snow and gusty coastal winds to parts of New England on Monday into Tuesday.
