Overnight snow and freezing rain left Westport and the rest of southwestern Connecticut feeling like winter had finally arrived Tuesday morning.

Only days before, temperatures rose to the mid-60s on Christmas Day and crowds turned out to enjoy balmy Compo Beach.

The “wintry mix” began falling across the region Monday night, leaving hazardous driving conditions on slippery roads early Tuesday. Even though light snow continued to fall Tuesday morning, by midday the precipitation was expected to change to all rain, according to the National Weather Service.

Temperatures should rise to the mid-40s, and there could be blustery winds as high as nearly 30 mph, the NWS indicates.

The outlook for the rest of the week is mostly clear, although there could be more rain Wednesday, and temperatures in a more typical range of mid-30s to upper-40s.
