A mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain is blamed for some tough travel conditions still across the state. The Speed Limit on the Pike is down to 40 miles per hour from the New York Line to near Westborough. Drivers are asked to lay off the speed and increase stopping distances. Some local roads are still ice covered while some others are slushy. There are some delays this morning. You can find those in the storm center.
