Icy Conditions Expected Sunday Morning

NBCUniversal Media, LLC

A winter weather advisory has been issued for much of interior Connecticut for slippery conditions expected Sunday morning.

Cold air will be tough to scour out at the surface.

With that cold air in place, light freezing rain is likely to break out between 7 to 9 a.m. Some sleet pellets could mix in but the icing is our bigger concern.

Along the shoreline, the milder air will move in quicker, but not before some slippery travel down to the beaches. It may take until early afternoon before temperatures go above freezing and there is a change to plain rain.

Areas in northwest Connecticut should expect the freezing rain threat to last a little longer since temps there will be slower to warm up.

Dozens of churches have canceled services and religious education classes. For a full list of closings, click here.
