Snow has moved into Fairfield and portions of New Haven counties. The snow will continue to move northeastward, overspreading the state over the next few hours.

Snow will quickly become moderate to heavy in intensity, which could mean snowfall rates of 1 inch per hour by 5 p.m. in lower Fairfield County. Light snow will move northeast and reach Hartford, Willimantic and the rest of the state by early this evening.
Snow may start to accumulate on all surfaces, including the immediate shoreline. Be prepared for slippery travel conditions if you are heading out this evening.

  • Later this evening, warmer air is expected to change the snow to rain along the shoreline by 8 or 9 p.m. Although a brief period of sleet is possible, little if any icing is expected.
  • Further north, snow should continue into the overnight. Locations across northwestern and northeastern Connecticut may not see a changeover until after midnight. Inland areas do have a risk of seeing some icing with sleet and freezing rain as well. This may cause dangerous driving conditions as roadways become slick and visibility is low.
