In Fairfield, commuters say they are still taking it easy on the roadways two days after the town was hit with a winter storm that dropped 16 inches of snow.
Wednesday is expected to be cloudy and breezy as the storm finally moves out of the region, but a lingering round of flurries can still be seen at times throughout the day.  
Despite DPW crews working to clear roadways in towns, once everything melts during the day and refreezes at night, road conditions become slick, officials warn.
Fairfield police say there were no accidents reported on the roadways Wednesday morning when a bit more of snow fell, and then quickly moved out of the area.
Mario Aguayo says he was commuting from Bridgeport to Stamford and tells News 12 he stops off at the Dunkin' Donuts in Fairfield every morning, and he was caught in the snow burst.
"It's a lot slicker than it looks. There's black ice all over the place," Aguayo says.  
Main roads like the Post Road in Fairfield remain very clear, but driveways are a different story, according to Fairfield resident Bridgid Killelea.
"I had a little trouble getting out of my driveway this morning because the top layer seemed to have crusted overnight. It was a little bit icy because the temperature dropped," Killelea says.
