Technical Discussion:
Low pressure developing along the mid-Atlantic coast today has trended weaker and further east. The end result is that only light amounts of precipitation are expected during late Saturday and into Sunday morning. This will also nudge temperatures up a degree or two, so even if precipitation does fall, it will be tough to get accumulating snow. A few of the outlying areas near the MA border could see a tough of sleet or freezing rain overnight, but icing is not a significant concern.
As low pressure passes east on Sunday, an inverted trough will try to back some snow showers into northern CT. Once again, with marginal temperatures and limited amounts of precipitation, not expecting much snowfall.
Current forecast does not differ much from last night, except will go for a coating to 2 inches of snow inland, with possibly up to 3" in the northeast hills. The shoreline should see little or no accumulation.
Monday still looks dry, but clouds could linger during the morning hours.
The next storm system brings mainly rain again by Tuesday night. Critical thicknesses are marginally cold at best inland, but there could be a period of sleet or wet snow.
The forecast for the end of the week becomes a bit more unclear. A large-scale trough is modeled to develop along the East Coast. There may be a coastal low pressure system in the vicinity, but will keep the forecast for Thursday dry and overcast for now. 

Today: Overcast, areas of drizzle, a few flurries possible. Highs in the upper 30's.
Tonight: Light rain at the shore, a light mix inland. Temps in the low to mid-30's.
Sunday: Lingering snow showers, mainly across northern CT. Highs around 40.
---Total snow accumulation: A coating to 2" inland, little/none at shore, up to 3" NE hills.
Monday: Clouds give way to sunshine, seasonable. Highs in the lower 40's.
Tuesday: Increasing clouds. A wintry mix or rain at night. Highs near 40.
Wednesday: Clouds, AM rain showers, mild. Highs in the mid-40's.
Thursday: Overcast skies. Highs in the low to mid-40's.

Note: Inland temperatures are an average. Often times, outlying areas may be a few degrees cooler than the advertised temperature on the 6-day graphic.
