A White Christmas for Parts of Connecticut

A small system brought snow to most of Connecticut Monday night, providing a white Christmas for many across the state.

Frozen precipitation began to fall around 9 p.m. on Christmas Eve.  A winter weather advisory was issued for most of the state through Tuesday morning.

The snow created slick roads for drivers returning from Christmas Eve festivities.

The snow was expected to be light and intermittent but  was forecast to coat the ground with up to an inch or so of accumulation by Christmas morning.

The weather will begin to improve Tuesday morning with partial clearing by afternoon. 

A second, and larger, storm will move in by Wednesday night with a wintry mix of rain, sleet, and snow. A winter storm watch has already been issued for Litchfield County.
