As warmer air rides up and over colder air closer to the ground on Monday, the result could be a period of mixed precipitation Monday afternoon into Monday night.

Monday morning: Becoming cloudy. Slight risk of flurries/light snow by late morning.
Monday afternoon: Light snow and sleet possible across Connecticut.
Monday night: A light wintry mix trending towards freezing drizzle inland, drizzle shore.
Temperatures in the upper 20's to lower 30's inland and low to mid-30's on the shore.

Be prepared for possible slippery road conditions Monday afternoon and evening. 
Although precipitation is not expected to be heavy, it only takes a little bit of snow and/or ice to cause difficult driving conditions. 

Some moisture is forecast to move into the Northeast ahead of an approaching warm front on Monday. The models show some light precipitation, mainly snow with some sleet, moving into the state between about 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. There is some uncertainty with the exact timing and the amount of precipitation that will fall, but the potential does exist for some travel concerns for the Monday afternoon/evening commute. As warmer air moves in, any precipitation should switch over to a wintry mix. There could even be some freezing drizzle inland late Monday night, with plain drizzle along the shoreline. Temperatures will generally hold steady in the upper 20's to low/mid-30's for the second half of Monday, before gradually all areas rise above freezing by Tuesday morning as the front clears.
