NORWALK - Southwestern Connecticut is getting a much smaller amount of snow than originally forecast, but Department of Public Works crews say they're ready to make sure roads are clear for Monday's commute.

DPW crews had originally planned for a heavy snowfall, though now forecasts show southwestern Connecticut getting between a coating and 3 inches. 

Monday's morning commute is still expected to be slippery and messy and dump trucks spent Sunday evening, delivering tons of road salt. In Fairfield, the town had salt on back order, due to the salt shortage brought on by this year's very snowy winter.

Snow is expected to stop by midday Monday and the rest of the day will be sunny, yet breezy and cold.
