    What to Know

    • Snow moves into the state between 6 and 7 p.m. Saturday. Heavy snow overnight ends between 4 and 6 a.m. Sunday.

    • We’re forecasting 4"-8" inland. Some towns could get a band of heavier snow around 10". Shoreline sees some mixing, 2"-4" inches for SE CT.

    • The snow will melt quickly with forecasted temperature as high as the 60s and 70s next week.

    Snow fell across the state Saturday night and into Sunday morning.

    Winter Storm Warnings were posted for the entire state on Saturday and many religious services and Sunday morning events were delayed or canceled.

    It was a fast-moving storm that swooped in just after 6 p.m. Saturday with a period of heavy snow that came down during the overnight hours. The snow wrapped up early Sunday morning.

    The storm dumped anywhere from 4 to 8 inches statewide, with totals higher in western areas.

    A mix to rain in southeastern Connecticut cut the totals there between 3 to 5 inches.  

    The wet, heavy snow created by the mixing brought down tree branches and wires and caused power outages in some areas. 


    The snow won't stick around for long as some warm air moves into the state by early next week.
