Colder air returns, light snow Wednesday

Minor accumulations on grassy surfaces are possible Wednesday, but it's looking like barely any impactful snowfall.

CONNECTICUT, USA — Today we have colder temperatures compared to yesterday with highs near 40. The wind won't be as strong as yesterday but it's still going to top out around 10-20 mph.

Wednesday will be a chilly day with temperatures mainly in the 30s. It looks like we will have off-and-on periods of light snow. This will not be a big storm for us, but it is the first accumulating snow of the season for much of the state, outside of the hills. 

In general we expect a scattered coating to 1" of accumulation, but there could be some 2" amounts in eastern Connecticut if snow lingers into Wednesday night.
