Light snow overspreads the state through the morning. By 10 a.m. parts of southwestern Connecticut were already reporting a coating of new snow on the ground. 
New snow accumulation by noon could reach one inch in some areas.


Warmer air will move in, gradually changing precipitation over to sleet and freezing rain. 
---On the shoreline, temperatures should rise above freezing by 3 to 5 p.m., so while there may be a few slick spots for the afternoon commute, the worst of the icing will occur north of I-95.
---Inland, snow and sleet may accumulate to 1-2 inches, especially in the northern hills. As the afternoon wears on, precipitations changes over to freezing rain.
A glaze of ice is expected for most of the state, away from the immediate shoreline.

Precipitation tapers off to drizzle by 5 p.m. or so, although freezing drizzle is likely inland. Be aware that conditions will remain slick, but most of the precipitation should be over by midnight.

Conditions dry out after midnight and into early Tuesday morning.
---There may be some slick spots across inland areas for the morning commute.

Temperatures during the day on Tuesday will eventually rise to near or above 40, which will help melt most of the snow and ice that remains on the ground.
