Well, we've made it through 2 of 3 short term winter events. A general coating to 2 inches fell across the great state of Connecticut from late last night through early this morning. Some on the shoreline are saying, "What snow?" but as is standard operating procedure with "clipper" systems, the bulk of the snow trended north. For the rest of today we’re looking at a brief break in the overcast in most places before clouds filter back in later this evening. Temperatures around the state will range from the mid to upper 30s inland, with low to mid 40s at the shore. As we head through this evening temps will drop back into the low 30s at the shore and mid 20s inland. Clouds should begin to filter back in later this evening, toward midnight, with some snow filtering into the state by dawn, and then the forecast gets a bit tricky.
- Clouds thicken late Saturday night, snow moves into the state by early Sunday morning
- 1-3 inches of snow at the shore before changing to rain late Sunday morning/ Early Sunday afternoon
- 3-6 inches of snow in central CT and northern CT outside of the hills before a change to rain Sunday PM
- 5-10 inches in the northeast and northwest hills, expected to be mostly snow, some sleet and rain could mix in Sunday PM
-Everyone is expected to change back to snow later on Sunday night, with the chance for an extra inch or 2 of accumulation before precipitation tapers off early on Monday
- Gusty winds will become an issue as we head through the day on Sunday, and especially so during the day on Monday when winds could gust up to and over 45 mph
