Wintry Weather Causes Messy Commute, Delays

(Northampton, MA) – The freezing rain advisory ended by 5 a.m. today, but the morning commute was still slippery with a lot of deep puddles and water on roadways.  Dense fog added to the danger.

State Police were called to the scene of a tractor trailer rollover on the northbound side of I-91 by exit 21 in Northampton. The crash happened just before 3 a.m. Police say the driver had only minor injuries. Crews worked for hours to try to move the truck upright and clear the scene.

While ice on the roadways caused delays at schools across western Massachusetts, thick fog and icy conditions might have caused flight cancellations at Bradley International Airport Monday morning. Several morning flights were cancelled, and only a handful were able to leave the airport on time during the early morning hours. Most flights scheduled to leave after 8:00 A.M. were departing on time.

Logan Airport is still dealing with a logjam of passengers. A number of factors are at play. People are trying to rebook flights that were bumped last week on account of the snow. Cancellations from other airports are having a ripple effect. Passenger volume is high because of heavy holiday return travel.
