Snow, followed by sleet and freezing rain, have coated the roads, creating dangerous driving conditions on Wednesday morning and causing hundreds of school delays.

Much of the state received just an inch of two of snow on Tuesday, with the highest recorded snow total of 3 inches in Fairfield.

This morning, rain is falling on top of the new snow and there are some problems on the roads, including on Interstate 91 South in New Haven, where a car is facing the wrong way.

As the day goes on, temperatures will increase to about 40 or 45 degrees in most of the state, but parts of northern Connecticut could be closer to freezing.

Another, possibly more significant snowfall could impact the state on Wednesday night into Thursday.

However, the heaviest accumulation will likely affect areas to our south, including New Jersey, Pennsylvania and D.C., although several inches of snow are possible throughout the state.

A winter storm watch has been issued for the shoreline from Wednesday evening through Thursday.

Southern Connecticut could get 2 to 4 inches of snow between Wednesday night and Thursday, with towns near the Massachusetts border get next to nothing, according to NBC Connecticut meteorologist Bob Maxon.
