FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Overnight snow showers left a dusting to an inch of the white stuff on area roads and highways, leading to slow-moving traffic Wednesday morning across Fairfield County, the Connecticut Department of Transportation said.

Traffic was already jamming up along southbound I-95 from Fairfield into Westport and Norwalk and along the Merritt Parkway in the same areas and into New Canaan by about 7 a.m.

The DOT and National Weather Service cautioned drivers to travel slowly and safely for the Wednesday morning commute.

All snow showers were expected to end by about sunrise.
