NEW YORK – The latest developments on the winter storm moving across the Northeast (all times local):

7:45 p.m.

Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont announced Wednesday he is banning tractor trailer and tandem trailers from all limited access highways, beginning at 9 p.m. due to the severe winter snow storm.

The Democrat said the ban will end at 9 a.m. Thursday. Neighboring states are implementing similar bans.

The governor said the ban won’t affect the state’s orders of COVID-19 vaccine from Pfizer, which have already arrived.

The state is planning to allow up to five nursing homes to begin vaccinating staff and residents on Friday, in advance of the planning Monday rollout.
