STATEWIDE (WGME) -- Police are urging Mainers to stay off the road as conditions become increasingly more dangerous.

A tractor-trailer jackknifed on the Maine Turnpike around mile 22 in Kennebunk Tuesday morning. No one was injured.

Wiscasset Police said they had three accidents before 11 a.m.

Speed limits on I-295 and I-95 are reduced to 45 mph

Conditions continue to deteriorate on the roads as some steadier bands of snow move onshore.

Visibility is down to about a quarter of a mile in York County. The snow will be coming down quickly with snowfall rates 1-3 inches an hour.

If your commute for Tuesday morning was okay, it's going to be a different story for Tuesday evening’s commute as the heavier snow moves in.

The storm came in quick and started piling the snow up especially in downtown Portland.

While most people heeded the warnings, there were still some people venturing out before things got really bad, including some runners

City officials asked residents to get their cars off the road ahead of Tuesday night’s parking ban.
