A spring snowstorm that blew in Monday morning created a messy commute, canceled dozens of flights out of Boston, and shuttered schools across New England.
The National Weather Service posted a Winter Storm Warning until 11 a.m. on Monday. Snow fell at rates of 1 to 2 inches per hour in several places after 2 a.m., according to meteorologist David Epstein.
The National Weather Service warned drivers that roads would be slippery during the morning commute. According to MassDOT, 2,896 crews were out clearing state roads. The snow caused several accidents and spinouts on roads throughout the state. A rollover on I-95 northbound in Sharon closed down the left lane of the highway. Other vehicles, like this truck, were discovered on the side of the road.
