    NBC Connecticut Meteorologists are tracking rain showers and snow flurries for the evening and then a significant cool down by Friday.

    A weak disturbance is tracking to the south of Connecticut bringing with it light rain and which may transition to wet snow flakes in the hill towns.

    The disturbance will bring a small area of moisture into the state this evening. The area of moisture may produce wet snowflakes, especially for the hill towns.


    Take a look at First Alert Future Radar through this evening. The best chance for snow flurries and light snow is between 6 p.m. and midnight.

    FIRST ALERT FUTURE RADAR 6 P.M.

    FIRST ALERT FUTURE RADAR 8 P.M.

    FIRST ALERT FUTURE RADAR 11 P.M.

    The good news is that we're not forecasting any of the snow to accumulate as the surface temperature is expected to stay above freezing. 

    While we're anticipating some cool air over the next couple of days the coldest air doesn't arrive until Friday. 

    A blast of cold air will settle into the region Friday and Saturday which could produce another round of flurries or even an isolated snow shower.


    High temperatures Friday afternoon will struggle to move out of the 30s while low temperatures Saturday morning will fall into the teens and 20s.
