Several inches of snow are possible in the hill towns on Friday night and Saturday morning and the NBC Connecticut meteorologists have issued a First Alert.
A storm that passes south of Connecticut is looking a bit more impressive as it approaches the state. It will have just enough cold air to produce a combination of snow and rain across the state.
The heaviest accumulation will be in the northwest and northeast hills and three to six inches of snow is possible in parts of Litchfield County.
The snow will begin falling Friday evening after 9 p.m. and continue through Saturday morning, with the heaviest snow falling from 11 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Saturday.
The Hartford area could see anywhere from one to three inches of snow. The storm has the potential to be one of the biggest on record in the Hartford area this late in the season.
Heavy and wet snow could bring down some tree limbs and power lines in the hills. A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for northern Connecticut ahead of the rain and snow.
The southern third of the state will see all rain.
