Monday should be dry, but a storm will be on Connecticut's doorstep come Tuesday.

Unfortunately for people and businesses that depend on snow, this storm doesn't look like a classic Nor'easter.

Snow will likely change to sleet and plain rain as temperatures rise into the 40s on Tuesday.

Temperatures will remain in the 40s on Wednesday with a blend of clouds and sunshine.
