Snow will become steadier from SE to NW this morning, with snowfall of varying intensity through this afternoon and evening.  A gusty NNW wind from 15-20 mph at times will cause blowing and drifting of the very dry snow creating poor visibility and hazardous travel conditions at times through late tonight. General Storm accumulations in the Capital Region of 2-6" are expected, with higher amounts across western New England.

Police department issues first car-smoking ticket

ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) -- A Vermont police department says it has issued its first ticket to a driver who was smoking with a child in his car.

St. Johnsbury Police say a civil ticket that included a $162 fine was issued last week to 32-year-old Daniel Berube after his car was stopped July 19 for having a defective muffler.

The Caledonian Record reports Officer Steve Hartwell found Berube smoking a cigarette in the drivers' seat with a toddler in a car-seat in the back.

Hartwell said Berube told him he knew of the new law, but didn't know if it was in force yet.

On July 1, Vermont enacted a law that prohibits smoking in cars carrying children under age 8.

No phone number could be found for Berube.
