It looks like winter in Connecticut after the first snowfall arrived on Oct. 30.

The state has only seen snow five times during the month of October since 1905.

The higher elevations of northern Connecticut could see two to four inches of snow when it comes to an end.

In the Hartford area and most of inland Connecticut, one to two inches of snow is possible. Little if any accumulation is expected along the shoreline.

Here's a look at our latest snowfall accumulation map.
