    Snow is expected to continue to fall until 2 to 4 a.m. on Thursday and leave between 3 inches and foot in different parts of the state.  

    The northwest hills, which are often hit hardest by snow, will get the least this time, with 2 to 4 inches. Cities and towns located along Interstate 84 and to the north will get 4 to 8 inches and towns to the south and east will get the most, with 8 inches to 1 foot.

    Snow began falling in Fairfield County around 9 a.m. and quickly spread to New Haven, Middletown and points north.

    There was originally supposed to be a lull for parts of the state, with heavy snow picking up again statewide this evening, but now it appears there will be no lull.

    Gov. Dannel Malloy ordered the state's Emergency Operations Center to open at 4 p.m. Wednesday and stay open for the duration of the storm.

    Expect a slow evening commute.
