Some bands of lake effect snow has reached as far east as Connecticut.

As cold, Canadian air moves over the warmer waters of the Great Lakes, the contrast has formed clouds and some lake effect snow showers.

Snow flurries have been reported across parts of Connecticut, especially western sections. Danbury and New Milford reported snow flurries within the past few hours. A few other communities have also reported some light snow, mainly across the higher terrain of Litchfield County.

Don't be surprised to see a few snow flakes or even a quick snow shower into the evening hours. Any snow will be light and short-lived, so no accumulation is expected.  

Usually lake effect snows have trouble making it this far east. In this case, there is enough wind to transport some of that moisture into Connecticut.
