Above video for a detailed forecast discussion.

A few flurries or sprinkles are possible this afternoon, but most of the state should remain dry. More precipitation moves in this evening between about 8 p.m. and midnight. This is when a period of light snow or snow showers will develop. 
Mainly light snow is expected, so we're not talking about heavy totals.
As warmer air moves in above the ground, the precipitation may turn to a wintry mix or even some light rain/drizzle by mid to late morning Saturday. By afternoon, most of the precipitation is over and temperatures should rise above freezing. 

I think most areas will end up with less than one inch of snow, but some of the hills in northwest and northeast Connecticut may get an inch to possibly two inches.
My other concern is a touch of light sleet or freezing drizzle across interior western Connecticut. This may occur from 7 a.m. to noon as warmer air tries to melt the snow on its way to the ground. At the same time, cold air could be locked into some of the deeper valleys making for a slick commute.
Again, the precipitation is not heavy, so this does not look like a big impact system.

Stay tuned for more updates throughout the day.
