Another round of precipitation today with below-average temperatures this weekend.
Rain & snow will spread from southwest to northeast across CT between 8 AM & noon.
Precipitation tapers off during the afternoon. Some breaks in the clouds possible by evening.
Accumulations of wet snow will range from nothing up to between a coating to an inch or two. Best chance for highest amounts in higher elevations and on grassy surfaces. Little impact on travel likely. In places where the snow does stick, most of it may be gone by the end of the day as highs reach the mid-upper 40's.
Areas of light rain & showers redeveloping tonight as a cold front moves down from the north & west. May end as snow showers late tonight. Low in the 30's.
Becoming partly sunny during Saturday. Highs in the 40's.
Southeastern CT could get clipped with of brief period of light snow late Saturday night as low pressure tracks to our southeast. At this time it looks like most of CT stays dry, with precipitation falling mainly across southeastern New England. Lows in the 20's across CT.
Sun will mix with clouds Sunday. Highs in the mid-upper 40's.
The system for Monday night & Tuesday looks disorganized and not very threatening at this time. Probably just some rain & snow showers or light precipitation.
Warmer weather likely next Friday, Saturday & Sunday (April 13-15).
