Again? Yes, again!

More snow fell yet again Tuesday morning on Westport and the rest of southwestern Connecticut -- about 2 to 3 inches or so by midday.

Schools in Westport were closed, but not because of the storm -- it's a week-long February vacation.

The snow largely stopped falling by noontime, but the National Weather Service said that a few more flakes, possibly mixed with icy rain, could fall periodically through afternoon.

That said, the NWS predicts gradually clearing later today as the storm moves away and the temperature rises to a daytime high near 40 degrees.

Tonight is expected to be partly cloudy, with a low temperature in the mid-20s and a west wind 8 to 13 mph, according to the weather service.

On Wednesday, there is a 40 percent chance of rain, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., as skies remain cloudy and the temperature warms to a high in the low-40s.

Thursday promises to be mostly sunny, with a high temperature in the mid-40s.

And Friday is expected to be even warmer -- a high temperature in the low-50s -- although fog and showers are also likely, according to the NWS.

Saturday should see cleaer skies and temperatures rising to nearly 50 degrees.
