A box truck that overturned on the Thurbers Avenue curve at the beginning of the morning commute Wednesday has been removed, and state police said all northbound lanes of Interstate 95 are open.

State police said no one was hurt, but the truck blocked two lanes of I-95 for hours.

The crash happened just as light snow started falling across Southern New England, but the exact cause of the rollover wasn't immediately known.

Storm Team 10 warned that the timing of the storm would lead to some headaches.

The light, steady snow will continue from 6 to 9 a.m. for most in the region. By the late afternoon, as temperatures rise into the mid-30s, there will be a transition to rain from the coast to inland spots.

A handful of schools delayed opening. Bellingham and Blackstone public schools were closed.
