A low pressure system is expected to track south of New England Saturday evening, bringing a period of snow to much of the Northeast during the second half of Saturday.

Light snow is expected to move into Connecticut midday Saturday and last into the first part of the night. The heaviest of the snow will likely stay southeast of the state.
The preliminary snowfall forecast is for between 1 and 3 inches of snowfall. 
*The snow looks to begin around lunchtime Saturday and should be over by midnight.
Light to occasionally moderate snow may last for 6 to 12 hours, but it does not look like we will see heavy snowfall rates, like those that many areas had Wednesday night.

Since low pressure is expected to pass well south of the area, the heaviest precipitation will likely miss CT. The model data has been pretty consistent in showing a light snowfall for the entire state. The only exception was the overnight European model run, which showed a moderate to heavy snow event. Although low pressure is expected to develop off the East Coast, the current data suggests that the strengthening will happen too late to throw back heavy moisture into CT. There are some indications that perhaps Cape Cod could get into a band of heavier snow.
