Technical Discussion:
The interaction between low pressure east of Cape Cod and low pressure over southeastern Canada will keep cloud-cover and moisture across the area. Some snow may develop later today along an inverted trough, but most of the activity should stay to the north and east of CT. With that said, kept drizzle and flurries in the forecast based on current observations and radar imagery. Some hill towns in northeastern CT may see a slushy light accumulation.
Monday features a return to some sunshine, along with seasonable temperatures. Tuesday starts dry, but then another storm system approaches the area.
Another nuisance variety wintry mix is increasingly likely for Tuesday night. The NAM and Euro have trended a bit colder than previous runs. The current forecast is mostly unchanged from Saturday, but does include an icy icon for Tuesday night. As low pressure moves right the region, temperatures aloft rise, but it may be hard to scour out colder near-surface air from the outlying sections of northern CT.
Rain may linger into a god portion of Wednesday, so have bumped temperatures down just a bit. In fact, temperatures throughout the forecast period are generally cooler than MOS guidance during the day. 
A large-scale trough is modeled to move into the East Coast for the end of the week. The result is cloud-cover and possible flurries. The latest trends are straying away from any sort of significant storm impacting the area. 

Today: Drizzle and flurries, especially across northeast CT. Highs around 40.
Tonight: Any flurries tapering off. Lows in the mid-20's inland, near 30 shore.
---Possible snow accumulation: A slushy coating or less in northeast CT.
Monday: Clouds give way to sunshine, seasonable. Highs in the lower 40's.
Tuesday: Increasing clouds. A wintry mix or rain at night. Highs in the lower 40's.
Wednesday: Clouds, rain in the morning. Highs in the low to mid-40's.
Thursday: Flurries or drizzle possible. Highs in the low to mid-40's.
Friday: Remaining mostly cloudy. Highs in the lower 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.
