Light snow falling in some parts of CT

As snow falls across parts of Connecticut Monday afternoon, a winter weather advisory remains in effect for part of the state.

The advisory, which went into effect at 10 a.m., remains in place for northern Fairfield County until 6 p.m.

The National Weather Service indicated about 2 to 4 inches of snow will fall in the advisory areas, with about 1 to 2 inches possible in areas outside the advisory. Snowfall rates could briefly reach 1 to 2 inches per hour.

Snow-covered roads, poor visibility and hazardous travel are in the forecast into the afternoon. The evening commute could be impacted, the weather service said.

The state Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection called it a “quick-moving snow and rain storm.”

“Take extra precautions if traveling today as conditions may vary across the state into the evening,” DESPP said.

There could be some snow along the Interstate 95 corridor, but overall accumulation in the area will be light because of warmer surface temperatures. The area will more likely see a wintry mix, the weather service said. Rain is forecast to fall across southeast Connecticut this afternoon and early evening.

The forecast indicates the snow will taper off by early evening Monday.
