NBC Connecticut meteorologists have issued a First Alert for a storm that will bring a wintry mix of sleet, freezing rain and rain to the state Monday into Tuesday.
An area of low pressure will first bring a light wintry mix for the morning. On and off precipitation will become steadier and heavier through Monday night.
Enough mild air aloft will move in to bring sleet and freezing rain for much of interior Connecticut. A change to rain is possible along the shoreline, especially in southeastern CT.
A half-inch of ice accretion is possible for areas of western Connecticut and northern Tolland county. Any ice accretion near half of an inch can cause tree damage and power issues.
