Cold today; possible light snow for Tuesday afternoon & evening

Light snow expected for Tuesday afternoon and evening.

CONNECTICUT, USA — The wind will continue to be persistent through this afternoon, so dress for the teens if you're heading out the door.  Also, don't forget the sun glasses as the bright sunshine will be shining throughout the day.

There will be a break in the wind and very cold air-mass when temps will rebound in the 30s under mostly sunny skies Monday.  Sort of the calm before the light snow event on Tuesday.

Latest guidance suggesting  that a period of light snow will be here by Tuesday afternoon and evening.  It's also becoming more likely that there will be a light snow accumulation on the order of a coating-2", with the higher amounts across western areas, to near nothing along eastern Ct.  As always, there is still wiggle room for changes between now and Tuesday.  Therefore, we'll keep you posted during the next 48 hours on any changes and trends to the possible snow accumulations!
