Hundreds of school started late Monday as light snow coated the roads and state police responded to around 50 crashes since 4 a.m.
Because of the snow, NBC Connecticut meteorologists have issued a First Alert through midday.
The shoreline saw mostly rain, but a coating to an inch of snow fell across inland Connecticut. While the snow didn't amount to much, it caused some slippery roads.
The afternoon will be dry with clouds and some sunshine. So, no problems are expected for the evening commute.
Another quick round of snow and rain is possible Tuesday night and Wednesday morning.
The theme of the long-range forecast is an active pattern – every few days, something is on the map near Connecticut.
A potent cold front could bring a snow shower Thursday or Friday morning, but more importantly, much colder air blows into the state.
Temperatures will only be in the 30s this weekend. Another round of snow showers is possible Sunday.
