The possibility of "significant" snowfall later this week remains in the National Weather Service forecast for southwestern Connecticut.
If a snow storm strikes the area -- the second in two weeks -- the "hazardous weather outlook" from the NWS predicts that precipitation could begin Thursday night and continue into Saturday.
Today, however, should be mostly sunny, with a daytime high temperature of about 37 degrees. There will be a northwest wind between 13 and 16 mph.
Tonight will be partly cloudy, with the temperature falling to the mid-20s. The wind will be from the west between 6 and 11 mph.
Tomorrow should be mostly cloudy, with a high near 35. West wind around 7 mph becoming south.
There is a 30 percent chance that snow will begin falling Thursday night into early Friday. Temperatures will fall into the high-20s, with a southeast wind between 7 and 11 mph.
The odds of snow increase to about 80 percent after noontime Friday. The daytime high temperature will be in the high-30s and the wind will be from the east clocked at between 9 and 13 mph.
Snow could continue falling Friday night and into Saturday, the NWS warns.
