This morning, residents of the northwest hills of Connecticut are waking up to a light coating of snow and that is just the beginning of weather that will complicate travel this holiday week.
After 6 p.m., a chilly rain, mixed with some sleet in the hills, will develop.
Rain should break out across the state and increase in intensity throughout the night.
If you plan to traveling for Thanksgiving on Wednesday morning, a lot of rain will likely make for a tough drive.
Very heavy rain will fall through 9 a.m. on Wednesday, with more periods of light to moderate rain continuing through 2 p.m. In all, 2 to 3 inches of rain are possible.
Later on Wednesday, the conditions will be blustery with gusty winds. But drier air is moving in, so the roads will dry out nicely.
The storm is expected to cause only some poor drainage flooding because it has been a dry season so far.
Conditions are expected to be clear for motorists driving on Thursday.
State police are setting up roving patrols and DUI checkpoints over the long holiday weekend.
