    The state will see rain showers and snow showers just in time to ring in the new year and NBC Connecticut meteorologists have issued a First Alert.

    Through 4 a.m., snow and rain showers will be scattered about across the state.

    The snow shouldn’t be enough to thwart New Year’s Eve plans, but it could make for slippery travel late.

    Northern hill towns may see the snow accumulate to an inch or so. The southern part of the state will be slightly warmer and should expect only rain showers.

    The snow moves out around 4 a.m. but roads could be slippery in the early morning, especially in northern Connecticut.

    New Year’s Day looks sunny with highs in the 40s. Monday temperatures drop back into the 30s and bring a chance of some freezing drizzle.
