Black Ice Possible Early Wednesday; Dry New Year’s

Here are your Tuesday Evening Connecticut weather headlines from StormTeam8 Senior Meteorologist Fred Campagna:

  • It will stay damp Tuesday night as the temperature falls below freezing inland and to near 32 at the Shoreline. Icy spots are possible with patchy mist and drizzle.
  • Fog will also develop Tuesday night, and that could further hinder driving conditions in some spot.
  • Any fog will lift early Wednesday morning, and the afternoon looks mostly cloudy. Highs will be in the low to mid 40s.
  • Chilly rain showers are likely Wednesday night as a storm system passes by. Lows will be above freezing in the mid to upper 30s.
  • Thursday should be a decent day with highs in the mid to upper 40s under partly to mostly cloudy skies.
  • The weather looks decent to ring in the New Year Thursday night. Lows will be in the upper 20s to low 30s under dry skies.
  • The first week of 2016 will be mainly dry and cold. Highs will be near 40 on Friday, and a bit cooler over the weekend.
  • Monday looks like the coldest day of the stretch with highs only near 32.
  • The temperature will gradually moderate early next week.
  • Connecticut picked up its first measurable snowfall of the season last night, with Bridgeport getting 0.7″ and Windsor Locks getting an inch.
