Offshore Storm Brings Coating of Snow

Light snow fell across the state Friday morning as a clipper transfered its energy to a powerful storm south of Connecticut.

As the power coastal storm strengthens today, the snow will vanish over central and northern Connecticut, but southeastern Connecticut could be clipped by the far northwest edge of the storm.

That said, flurries or light snow will continue through midday in southeastern Connecticut, not accumulating on the roads, but making for some coatings on the grass and elevated surfaces.

The steady snow is mere miles south of the coastline, so it's a very difficult forecast. First Alert forecasters will be updating the forecast all day long. Download the NBC Connecticut App for interactive radar.

The strong March sun, even with a thin layer of clouds, will prevent roads from deteriorating as the day progresses. Additionally, temperatures will rise above freezing.

The flurries and light snow will wrap up early this evening.

Tonight will be windy and cold.
