NBCUniversal Media, LLC

Our NBC CT meteorologists are monitoring a light wintry mix that will affect the state through Sunday morning.

Snow flurries transitioned to sleet and freezing rain overnight. We're not forecasting a lot of ice however a thin layer could be just enough to create some slippery travel on the roads.

Total snowfall accumulations statewide are expected to range from a coating to 1 inch.

Temperatures overnight will be in the upper teens and 20s.

A winter weather advisory is in effect for Fairfield, Middlesex, New Haven and New London counties.

Our team of meteorologists has also issued a First Alert for a potential ice storm that could impact the state Monday afternoon into Tuesday.

Right now, it appears a light wintry mix could develop on Monday afternoon ahead of a much bigger system that would move in on Tuesday.

The wintry mix on Monday would include a mixture of snow, sleet and freezing rain which could create slick travel across the state.

A potential ice storm could start on Tuesday with significant ice accretion possible in parts of the state. We are trying to pinpoint where in Connecticut would experience sleet vs. freezing rain.
