Here are your Monday Evening Connecticut weather headlines from StormTeam8 Senior Meteorologist Fred Campagna:
- Skies will stay clear for most of tonight. The wind will diminish, and it will be cold, with lows in the mid teens inland to low 20s at the Shoreline.
- Clouds will increase near dawn on Tuesday. The temperature will climb to near freezing by midday as the breeze increases out of the south.
- Rain and snow will develop near the Shoreline between 1-3 pm. It’s more likely to be snow inland. The temperature will reach 35-40 in the afternoon, and the snow will have a difficult time sticking to pavement before sunset.
- Any rain will change to snow statewide in the early evening, and some side roads could become slippery during the evening commute, particularly inland.
- Snow ends from west to east between 7-9 pm. Snow totals will likely be less than an inch for most of the state, with 1-2″ possible in Litchfield, Northern Hartford, Tolland and Windham Counties. The best chance of 2″ is in the NW hills.
- Skies will clear and the temperature will fall to the low to mid 20s with a gusty northwest wind late Tuesday night.
- Dry weather is ahead for the mid to late workweek. Wednesday and Thursday look cold, breezy, and dry. Highs will be in the upper 20s to low 30s, with wind chills in the teens and low 20s. It will be a bit milder Friday, with sunny skies and highs near 40.
- We’re tracking another storm for this weekend. Right now, it looks like more rain than snow in CT, but it’s still early, and a tracker farther south with a colder/snowier scenario is possible.
