Snow was falling across most of Connecticut at 1 p.m., but some sleet and freezing rain was mixing in across portions of lower Fairfield County.

Snow changes to sleet and freezing rain from southwest to northeast. This will cause slippery conditions through most of the afternoon. The steady precipitation begins to taper off by 3 or 4 p.m. in western Connecticut and by 4 or 5 p.m. in eastern sections.

Total snow/sleet: 1 to 2 inches for most of the state. Up to 3 inches possible in the hills and slightly less along parts of the immediate shoreline.

Icing: Only a light glaze of ice, with the most occurring across interior southwestern Conn.

After 5 p.m. only drizzle with pockets of freezing drizzle are expected inland, so conditions will begin to improve as roadways can become fully treated. Some of the northeast hills may hang on to some light snow and sleet before precipitation tapers to freezing drizzle.

Conditions should be much better for the Tuesday morning commute, but with temperatures near or below freezing inland, there may be lingering icy spots.
