    Thursday's snowstorm ushered in much colder air, creating the potential for record lows overnight.

    Most of the state will see temperatures between 0 and 10 degrees Thursday night into Friday morning. We're expecting a low of about 4 degrees at Bradley Airport and could see temperatures closer to 0 in the northwest hills.

    Record cold is likely along the shoreline, according to Chief First Alert Meteorologist Brad Field. The current record in Bridgeport stands at 11 degrees, and we're projecting a low of 10 degrees overnight.

    It comes in the wake of a snowstorm that once again centered around southeastern Connecticut. The New London area received up to 8 inches of fresh snow, while accumulation in the rest of the state ranged from 2 to 6 inches. Northern Connecticut saw just a dusting.

    Looking ahead to the weekend, skies are clear.
