HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Residents throughout Connecticut woke up to snow on the ground, along with a tricky commute Monday morning.

A half an inch to three quarters of an inch of snow had fallen in New Haven and Litchfield counties by the time the commute began. Coastal flooding was also possible on Monday due to the storm.

Aside from the slick roads Monday morning, travelers at Bradley International Airport in Windsor Locks dealt with cancellations and delays. 

Some flights to Baltimore, Cleveland, Chicago and Toronto were canceled. Two flights to Atlanta were delayed.

Travelers were asked to plan ahead and check with their individual airline to find out flight statuses before heading to Bradley.

"I was nervous about getting in," said Carl Abissi of Westbrook. "That's why I stayed overnight, right next to the airport. My flight's fine. [It's] a little slippery out there. People are being careful."

Crews worked to de-ice the planes on Monday morning.

If a flight is canceled, call the individual airline to find out how to reschedule. For updates, click here

Now that the storm has moved out of the state, temperatures were climbing into the 30s and 40s for the rest of the day.

On Monday night, as the temperatures dropped Monday night, the chance for black ice increased.

Chief Meteorologist Bruce DePrest said chances for black ice overnight are high, following Sunday night’s snow and Monday morning’s rain, along with the falling temps.

Reports of black ice were coming in from all over the state Monday night, in parking lots, side roads and driveways.

Meteorologist Mark Dixon said there could be some icy spots to deal with on Tuesday, but the day will be partly sunny with temperatures in the 40s.

A blast of cold air is headed our way this week.

"If you thought it was cold this past weekend, this next shot of Arctic air will be even colder... by Thursday night into Friday morning, temperatures could dip into the single digits... factoring in the wind, it will feel sub-zero," Dixon said.

The weekend looks unsettled right now, with a chance for a wintry mix changing to rain from Saturday into Sunday.
