Local radar at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Snow is falling across much of the state with light accumulations in some areas.

11:30 a.m.
Moderate to locally heavy snow is reported across many areas, especially in New Haven and Middlesex Counties. The snow has coated the ground in some spots, but temperatures are still above freezing, so most roads are wet. 

Through 1 p.m.
A band of moderate to heavy precipitation is moving across the state. This will bring a burst of heavy snow, which could drop an inch of new snow in some areas. Although most roads should remain wet, some bridges and rural roads could become slick.
Radar shows some breaks in the action across New London County, but there is plenty of precipitation back to the east-southeast.
Most areas will see snow, but sleet and rain is possible along the immediate shoreline and east of I-395 in eastern Connecticut.
Winds are also picking up as New Haven had sustained winds of 21 MPH at 11 a.m. Gusts have reached in the 30 to 40 MPH range along the shoreline.

Wintry precipitation and wind will continue through the rest of the afternoon.

Previous updates:

10 a.m.
Several towns in southeastern Connecticut have reported sleet and rain within the past hour. Niantic, East Lyme and Old Lyme were among the towns reporting sleet. Old Saybrook and Groton were reporting light rain. Most other local areas were still dry as of 10 a.m. There were numerous reports of sleet, rain and even snow across central and eastern long Island. The brighter colors on radar indicate "bright banding," which most likely means ice pellets (sleet) are falling.

Precipitation will overspread the state from southeast to northwest. Radar indicates heavier precipitation approaching the coastline of Fairfield and New Haven counties. With a sharp cut off, 
conditions could go from dry to moderate sleet, snow and or rain in a matter of just a couple of minutes along with lowering visibility.
However, with temperatures in the mid to upper 30's, the roads should remain wet. A few spots could see a light slushy accumulation on grassy surfaces and car tops by noon. As heavier precipitation moves in, any mixed precipitation could very well switch to wet snow, even right along the shoreline.
