Weather event for Saturday and Sunday impacting Connecticut, here’s what you need to know. As of right now, Saturday morning is the start time as rain for the shore with a few wet flakes mixed in, a wintry mix middle of CT and wet snow northern CT.  During the overnight hours, I think mostly rain, except for northern CT will stay a wet snow.  Middle of CT could see a wintry mix for a few hours, but I believe most of the precipitation will be in the form of rain. Sunday morning cold air begins to push in from the north, changing over precipitation to a very wet, heavy snow for everywhere except the shoreline as I believe shore will be a wintry mix there.  End time is Sunday afternoon. Below is a snow accumulation map!


BREAKING IT DOWN!!!

Green Zone: Starts as rain with few wet flakes mixed in by noon on Saturday, changes over to all rain during day on Saturday and overnight.  Early Sunday morning will be a wintry mix.  Over by noon on Sunday and up to an inch of slush!

Blue Zone: Starts as wintry mix/snow by noon on Saturday, and then changes over to a cold rain with a few flakes later in the afternoon on Saturday. Could see around an inch by the changeover to rain, it will be icy out.  Rain during the overnight hours, but back over to a wet snow during the morning hours on Sunday. Done by noon on Sunday, extreme eastern CT tries to hold on with precipitation a few hours after noon. 1-3 inches of wet snow for total accumulation.

Pink Zone: Starts as a very wet snow around noon on Saturday.  Although warm air tries to battle with extreme northern CT, I believe it will stay all snow throughout the day on Saturday and the overnight hours. Could see a wintry mix for few hours during the night, but mostly an all snow event.  3-6 inches for areas in the pink!
