After a burst of snow, some occasional light snow will fall on and off through tonight and into tomorrow and some schools will have remote learning on Friday. See the list here.

Meteorologist Josh Cingranelli checked in from Essex while Snow Monster prowled the streets in Wethersfield.

Roads Friday morning may be slippery but conditions should not be terrible for driving.

The NBC Connecticut meteorologists have issued a First Alert for all of Connecticut.

Because of the snow, some schools decided to have a remote learning day or dismiss students early on Thursday.

As of Thursday evening, Old Saybrook had five inches of snow, Guilford and Clinton say 4.5", and Bridgeport had 3.4 inches. The shoreline saw higher totals than inland.

As snow coated roads, there were some traffic issues.

The snow will continue overnight and into Friday morning, but there could be scattered snow into Friday afternoon.

More snow is falling and some schools are dismissing students early.

An accumulation of three to six inches is expected statewide, according to the NBC Connecticut First Alert Weather team.

With more snow on the way, COVID-19 vaccine sites in Connecticut explain how they prepare and what to do if you are not comfortable heading to an appointment in the snow.

The best chance of higher snow totals will be in the northern half of the state.
