What a difference 24 hours makes! Many in the southern part of the state around this time were busy shoveling for what it seems the millionth time this winter. While many north of I84 and Hartford were left scratching their collective heads saying "what storm?". Generally areas near the shoreline picked up between 4 and 7 inches of snow, compared to an inch or 2 in the aforementioned areas. What everyone did get to experience was the cold temperatures ushered in behind the disturbance. Many places did not reach 30 degrees today with ares inland not even reaching the low 20s. The sun was shining though, so we take the good with the bad. March sun angle contributed by the melting of some snow despite temperatures by and large being below freezing.
As we head through the evening, clear skies will remain in place and temperatures will plummet through the teens into the single digits inland, while southern locations down to the shoreline will experience temperatures in the mid teens. For your Saturday, temperatures will be slightly warmer than today getting into the 30s for the most part statewide. Clouds look to increase for Saturday night where there looks to be a slight chance of snow showers. Yes I mentioned the "S" word, but this look to be very minor and short lived, no accumulation expected. With cloudy skies, nighttime temperatures look to be in the low to mid 20s inland, to upper 20s and low 30s at the shore. So not nearly as cold as it has been. For Sunday we return to fair conditions with high temperatures getting as high as about 40 degrees, almost shorts weather considering what we have had to endure since late January. For Sunday night, again, skies remain mostly clear with temperatures by and large in the 20s.
