NEW YORK (AP) — Snow in the Northeast is causing hazardous road conditions for the morning commute but has mostly tapered off south of New England.

There were no reports of problems at airports or on commuter trains, subways and buses Friday, but transportation officials are advising commuters to give themselves extra time.

In New England, forecasters say the storm is expected to dump 5 to 8 inches of snow. National Weather Service meteorologist Benjamin Sipprell says the quick-moving storm is not expected to affect power lines and tree limbs as did the wet, heavy snow the region endured a week ago.

The snow had stopped falling in New York City and New Jersey by about 8 a.m. The weather service says Central Park got about 4 inches of snow. Accumulations reached as much as 5 inches in northwest New Jersey.
