The National Weather Service reports that precipitation has changed from snow to freezing rain, making untreated roads especially slick.
More reports are coming in of cars off the roadway and a school bus having a hard time getting up Molasses Hill Road, Bethany.
Ice accumulations of several hundredths of an inch up to a tenth of an inch are expected before temperatures rise above freezing.
A winter weather advisory is in effect until 1 p.m.
The weather service warns, "use extreme caution as road conditions may deteriorate rapidly and become icy with little warning."
