As the storm gains strength, traffic conditions will worsen across the area.

The speed limit on the Mass Pike has been reduced to 40 miles per hour from the New York state border to Exit 7 in Ludlow.

Because of the conditions, you will want to give yourself some extra time to get to your destinations.

Over 900 MassDOT crews are out treating and clearing the roads in western Massachusetts, as well as central Massachusetts.

MassDOT noted that pavement conditions range from wet to slushy and snow-covered in central, western, and northern regions.

Parking bans are in place across the valley, so make sure you check the list see if your town is on there.

If you do have to head out, you are urged to take it slow and 'Don't Crowd The Plow'.
