    While temperatures on Thursday will be in the 20s, strong winds are expected Thursday night.

    The wind gusts could reach 60 mph, which would push wind chills into the 10 to 20 below range.

    (Published Wednesday, Dec. 14, 2016)

    Actual air temperatures Friday morning will be in the single digits above and below zero.

    Friday's high will only be near 20 degrees!

    A winter storm moves in Saturday, and it will begin as accumulating snow in the predawn hours. 1 to 2 inches of snow are expected in southeastern Connecticut, 2 to 4 inches in central Connecticut, and 4 to 6 inches in northwest Connecticut.

    High pressure initially in place over New England moves to the east, pumping in milder air.

    So while the storm starts as snow, the precipitation eventually transitions to sleet, freezing rain and plain rain later Saturday into Sunday.

    By Sunday afternoon, melting is expected as temperatures will be near 50.
