Light snow, driven by blustery winds early this morning, is making morning travel hazardous across southwestern Connecticut.

The precipitation, along with winds gusting as high as 30 mph, has triggered a Coastal Flood Advisory from the National Weather Service this morning until 9 a.m., with the greatest threat of flooding during the high-tide period of 7 a.m.

The snow may continue until noon, when it is expected to change to rain, according to the NWS. The daytime high temperature will rise to the mid-30s. Chance of precipitation is 80 percent with total daytime snow accumulation of less than one inch possible.

More snow is likely tonight, the NWS says, as the temperature falls to a low of about 30 degrees. Chance of precipitation is 90 percent, with new snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches possible.

Snow is expected to continue falling tomorrow until afternoon, then changing to rain later in the day. The daytime high temperature will be in the upper-30s, with a north wind 18 to 21 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90 percent, the NWS says, with new snow accumulation of 1 to 2 inches possible.

Tomorrow night, clouds from the storm system that has buffeted the region since Wednesday should begin clearing as the temperature falls to a low about 30 degrees.

On Saturday, skies are expected to by sunny and the temperature will rise to a daytime high of nearly 50 degrees. Nighttime will be mostly clear, with a low temperature around 30 degrees.

Sunday should be partly sunny, with a high temperature again near 50 degrees. Night skies will be mostly cloudy, with a low temperature in the mid-30s.
