Snow is falling, highways are slick and police are reporting crashes and spinouts.

Snow began falling in greater Hartford about 8:30 a.m. Two to 4 inches are expected through the day, with totals reaching 5 inches in some spots. Snow fall will be heaviest between 2 and 7 p.m., FoxCT Chief Meteorologist Joe Furey said.

This morning’s bitter cold temperatures caused snow to coat the ground quickly, Furey said.

Governor Dannel P. Malloy’s office said the state would open its Emergency Operations Center at the state armory at 1 p.m. to monitor storm conditions across the state heading into the afternoon rush hour.

Several school systems have opted to close for the day. Some that opened dismissed early.
