The coldest air of the season so far will arrive in Connecticut on Tuesday.
High temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday will be in the uppers 40s to near 50 degrees.
Both days will be dry with a good amount of sunshine. Freeze warnings were issued for Fairfield, Middlesex, New Haven, New London and Tolland counties starting Tuesday night into Wednesday morning.
Thursday brings the forecast challenge of precipitation.
Early Thursday morning, temperatures will be below freezing across much of Connecticut.
High pressure will be in a good position to keep the cold in place at the surface, and as a result, snow is possible across inland Connecticut Thursday morning.
Temperatures will eventually rise above freezing, leading to a mostly rain event for the whole state.
While snow accumulation is unlikely and most will just experience wet roads, the hill towns could see a slushy accumulation.
It's early in the season but temperatures could start out in the middle 20s in the hill towns.
Shoreline areas will just experience rain on Thursday. It will be cold, with highs only near 40 inland but up near 50 at the shoreline.
Behind the storm on Friday, an abundance of clouds will stick around.
