NBC Connecticut's meteorologists have issued a First Alert for a winter storm on Friday.
The First Alert includes all of Connecticut.
A storm system will bring light to moderate rain to the state on Thursday. As the storm system moves through the region a cold front will move down from the north. This will cause the rain to transition to a wintry mix of freezing rain, sleet, and snow as we head into Friday morning and Friday afternoon.
Temperatures will drop below freezing during the day Friday and the rain will change to ice and snow.
Some accumulating snow is expected and roads will become slippery.
The snow will taper off by sunset on Friday.
