After the snow stopped falling yesterday, and the bone-chilling "wintry mix" eased, Westporters hit the slopes.

Slopes of snow, some several feet deep, piled up at the end of the driveways and the perimeters of parking lots.

Shovels. Sleds. Skis. Snowballs. All played roles in the fallout from the latest snowfall.

After a smattering of light snow early today, the cleanup -- and play time -- continued as the clouds cleared and the temperature headed to the low-40s under sunny skies, according to the National Weather Service.

Tonight, however, clouds return as the temperature drops to a low in the mid-20s.

Tomorrow, snow is likely to fall once again, the NWS says, sometime after 9 a.m. The daytime high temperature will be about 35 degrees, with the predicted snowfall accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.

After the storm clears out, very cold weather grips the region again, with a nighttime low in the low-teens -- and wind-chill values as low as zero.

Sunday is expected to be mostly sunny, with a daytime high temperature in the upper-20s -- although there is a slight chance of snow.

But by Monday evening, there are greater odds -- rated 50-50 -- of more snow in the forecast.
