(WFSB) -

The nor'easter that began Monday night and lasted into Tuesday made for slippery driving conditions across the state.

WFSB traffic reporter Nicola Nalepa has been keeping tabs on the crashes, but noted that there were too many to continually post to social media accounts.

The Early Warning Weather Tracker has been on the road in the greater Hartford area and reported slushy roads.

In many cases, the best travel lane on the highway has been the center lane, especially on Interstate 91.

Snow and ice have built up along the far right and left lanes as a result of plows attempting to clear the mess.

Exiting the highway could be a challenge.

Drivers can keep up with the reports with the WFSB traffic map here.
