    NBC Connecticut's Bob Maxon takes a look at the midday forecast for January 16, 2013.

    Snow started falling overnight and caused traffic problems for people who had to commute on Wednesday morning. State police said 183 crashes were reported.

    The snow also prompted more than 600 closings and delays and children across the state took advantage of a day off.

    Daniel Allen, 11, and his brother Jake went sledding in Hamden.

    "I decided to get out and do something as early as I could," Daniel said.

    Accumulations of 3 to 6 inches are possible throughout the interior of the state with 1 to 3 inches likely along the shoreline.

    The snow will mix with sleet and rain along the shoreline on Wednesday morning, holding the accumulations down just a little.

    How far the mix-line makes it north could impact accumulations totals up to the Interstate-84 corridor.

    The snow and mixed precipitation will wind down by late morning, with some light flurries and drizzle lasting into the afternoon.

    Cold air will follow this system as we head toward the weekend.
