A winter storm is wreaking havoc on travel across the Northeast and will continue to do so through Saturday evening.
A messy mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain continues to spread across several states in the Northeast. For some, this is the first accumulating snow or sleet of the season.
During much of Saturday, motorists will face slow and slippery travel from the northern mid-Atlantic states through New England. Road conditions will range from snow covered to slushy or wet.
As of 9:45 a.m. EST on Saturday, Dec. 17, one runway at Washington Dulles Airport has been reopened after airfield crews treated the runway and melted the ice.
