Toward the end of last night, many districts hadn’t yet called off classes despite a predicted snow-to-ice storm for parts of the state.

On Wednesday morning, that no longer was the case, as many school officials again decided to play it safe.

According to a National Weather Service winter weather advisory in effect until 5 p.m., most of the southern part of the state will see no more than 2 inches of snow. The northern parts of counties including New London could see up to 5 inches, according to the advisory.

The advisory additionally calls for up to one tenth of an inch of ice, which it said could make for tough travel conditions.
