A winter storm that brought a few inches of snow with an ice covering to central Maine on Monday night made for a slippery commute Tuesday morning in central Maine.

Regional emergency communications centers reported a few minor accidents when cars slid off the roads, but no major crashes. In Madison slushy conditions lead to a rollover accident on White School House Road around 1 p.m. A woman and two children were in the vehicle but were not injured, said Chief Deputy James Ross of the Somerset County Sheriff’s Office.

Speed limits on Interstate 95 were reduced to 45 mph Monday night because of snowy conditions that later changed to a wet wintry mix, but those restrictions were lifted at 9:15 a.m. Tuesday.

Central Maine Power Co. reported electricity outages for more than 180 customers in Kennebec and Sagadahoc counties Tuesday afternoon. Nearly half of the customers reporting a power outage were on Pleasant View Ridge Road in China, while others were in Albion.

Gail Rice, a CMP spokeswoman, said Tuesday afternoon that the outages probably were related to the weather and crews were en route to do repairs. Power was restored between 1 and 2 p.m.

The National Weather Service in Gray issued a winter weather advisory early Tuesday morning, but as the temperature rose into the 40s Tuesday, precipitation changed to all rain.

A high wind warning was also in place along the southern and midcoast regions, and the weather service estimated wind speed of 25 to 35 mph with gusts of up to 60 mph. Trees and tree limbs and power lines could be blown down.

Rice said Tuesday the weather forecast has the company’s interest and it is making sure all its employees are aware they could be called out to do recovery work.

“We are ready and we have let employees know it may be a busy afternoon and evening,” Rice said.
