Light snow was falling across most of Connecticut as of 10:15 p.m. with areas of locally moderate snow across portions of Fairfield and New Haven counties. Temperatures range from the upper 20's in the northern hills to the mid-30's along the shoreline.

Periods of generally light snow will continue for the next few hours, but there will be a break in the action.
Most of the precipitation will be over by 1 a.m. across western Conn. and a few hours later in eastern Conn. As the precipitation lets up, inland areas could see flurries or freezing drizzle, but plain drizzle is possible along the shoreline.
Another batch of snow is expected to develop across eastern Conn. during the predawn hours.
Total snowfall will generally be a coating to an inch inland; locally two inches possible.
---The shoreline will stay mostly wet, but a few spots could pick up a slushy coating.
Any icing should be generally light, but a few areas between I-95 and I-84 could also see minor icing, making for some slippery travel conditions.

Conditions slowly improve during the morning hours after sunrise, but there could be patches of light mixed precipitation through lunchtime.
