Snow Affects Morning Commute in Parts of Connecticut

Meteorologist Bob Maxon shares his First Alert forecast for Jan. 18, 2016. (Published Monday, Jan. 18, 2016)

Snow and dropping temperatures made for a messy commute in parts of the state Monday morning.

The shoreline saw the most snowfall Sunday evening, leaving roads wet with potential for icing over. A squall with heavier bursts of snow came through New Haven and has moved out to sea. Other towns could affect gusts of wind. New Haven county and the shoreline got the brunt of snow this morning.

There were some crashes on the shoreline where roads are slick in spots. 

Temperatures are bitter cold Monday, dipping into the 20s on Tuesday with wind chills in the teens. 

It's optimal for snow-making weather Monday, which could be helpful for ski areas that had a late start to the winter season as cold air arrives for the Martin Luther King Day holiday when many schools are out and families may be hitting the slopes.

Wednesday and Thursday will be sunny with temperatures in the 30s. 

Our First Alert weather team is tracking a possible coastal snow storm Friday into Saturday. A wintry mix is possible then, but it could slide further south and miss us, according to meteorologist Darren Sweeney. Saturday is expected to be windy.
