Quick-Moving Storm Brings Rain, Accumulating Wet Snow

NBCConnecticut.com

Rain is falling statewide and it transitioned into snow in some northern parts of Connecticut, particularly hill towns like Norfolk. 

Rain began falling after midnight for most of the state but transitioned over to snow in some northern parts of Connecticut, particularly hill towns like Norfolk.

Most of the appreciable accumulation, about 1 or 2 inches, has been in the highest elevations in northwest Connecticut, as well as in some of the hill towns of the northeast such as Staffordville and Union.

Snowflakes were reported in many other towns like Ellington, Manchester, South Windsor and Stafford.

The storm causing the rain and wet snow will pull away quickly this afternoon leaving us with mostly cloudy skies and mild temperatures in the upper 30s in the hill towns and 40s elsewhere.

There could be slick spots this evening and overnight, especially in hill towns that saw the most accumulation and melting during the day.

On Sunday, there will be a lot of clouds as a system passes just to the south.

On Monday, there's still a chance of snow showers during the morning and a possibility of a coating in some towns around the time of the morning commute.

Temperatures will be optimal for snow making, 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.

No storms are in sight for next week at this time, but it is expected to be cold.
