As of 11:15 a.m. moderate snow is falling across northern Connecticut. A lighter mixture of snow and some rain is falling closer to the shoreline. Temperatures are steady between 32 and 34 degrees inland, so the snow is accumulating on some surfaces. Near the coast, the temperature is generally 35 to 38 degrees, so mainly rain is falling there.

Periods of moderate snow will continue across inland Connecticut. A mix of rain and snow is expected to continue near and south of the I-95 corridor. With some bursts of heavier snow,
some towns may have an inch or slightly more of snow on the ground by 1 p.m. 
An area of heavy snow over northern New Jersey will be watched as it may sneak into lower Fairfield County.

An area of moderate to heavy snow is forming. This area extends from eastern Pennsylvania into northern New Jersey and now portions of southeastern New York State and Connecticut. White Plains is snowing, but all of the NYC stations are reporting rain. Some snow has been mixing in even in those areas, but mainly away from the urban centers. Wet snow was mixing in at times with the rain across the North Shore of Long Island. This area of snow will be closely monitored into the early afternoon. Temperatures have been steady or have even risen a degree or two across northern Connecticut. If and when temperatures fall back, that is when things could get really tricky. There is a higher probability that temperatures will begin to fall by mid to later afternoon, especially as the sun sets and low pressure begins to strengthen south of Long Island.
