UPDATE: 5:39 AM
The only thing we got to complain about on the roads this early AM is the weather.
We have a light rain falling across southwest Connecticut with some patchy fog along the coast.
So far, we have no accidents to slow things down. But that’s likely to chance because despite the rain, we still have lots of tailgaters out there.
The rain should be off and on throughout the day with an increased chance of thunderstorms this afternoon.
