Published 5:39 am, Friday, February 4, 2011
The brief break in the storm cycle that's been buffeting southwestern Connecticut continues today, but the National Weather Service says it will come to a snowy end early tomorrow.
After today's sunny skies and a high temperature of about 33 degrees, snowfall should start sometime after 3 a.m. tomorrow.
The precipitation will be mostly snow before 9 a.m., then mixing with freezing rain until midday. As the temperature climbs to the mid-30s, the wintry mix will become primarily rain with some snow.
The NWS predicts the accumulation of snow could be from 1 to 2 inches, with ice of less than a 0.1 inch possible.
There is still a chance of rain and snow tomorrow night, mainly before midnight. Temperatures will fall into the mid-20s, with a north wind between 7 and 9 mph. New snow accumulation of less than one-half inch is possible.
Sunday should be mostly sunny, with a high near 35 degrees, the weather service says.
On Monday, the storm cycle spins again: Daytime should be mostly cloudy, with a high temperature near 39, but rain and snow could start falling at night.
