“The timing of the storm will impact both the morning and evening commutes, making travel treacherous throughout those periods,” Malloy said.  “Furthermore, this storm is anticipated to produce very strong winds with the potential for near white-out conditions at its height.”

Connecticut highways will remain open, but motorists will be encouraged to stay off them. Malloy also encouraged employers to allow their employees to work from home.

The Emergency Operations Center will open at 6 a.m. and Malloy will hold a press briefing at 8 a.m.
