There are several forecasts for our small state of Connecticut, according to the National Weather Service.

A winter weather advisory was issued for Southern Fairfield County around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday. The advisory will be in effect from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, the weather service said. There is an expectation of mixed precipitation and a possible snow accumulation of up to two inches.

Southern Fairfield County can expect periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain, causing travel difficulty Wednesday.

“Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving,” the weather service said.

The area could also see up to one-tenth of an inch of ice.

“The ice will result in difficult travel conditions, including during the morning commute on Wednesday,” the NWS said. “Be prepared for reduced visibilities at times.”

A winter weather advisory was posted around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday for northern Fairfield, Middlesex, New Haven and New London counties as well. The advisory is expected to be in effect from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday.
