Forecast: Rain overnight and into Sunday; wintry mix for northern areas

NORWALK -

Western Connecticut will see some rainfall overnight and into Sunday, and areas further north could get some more wintry precipitation.

After a cloudy Saturday with scattered showers, News 12 meteorologists say steadier rain returns overnight as colder air moves in. Litchfield County will likely see a period of freezing rain or sleet before dawn. Temperatures will be close to freezing in Litchfield and Northern Fairfield counties, and a quick glaze of icing is possible. The wintry precipitation will not affect areas close to the Sound Shore.

Then for Sunday morning, after a brief mix in northern areas, rain will continue throughout the day. Temperatures will fall through the 30s, and as the storm system pulls away from the area, a round of snow is possible Sunday evening.

The quick burst of snow could limit visibility on roadways, and it may accumulate in elevated areas north of the Merritt Parkway. All precipitation should end by early Monday morning, before the morning rush.

The rest of the day Monday will see a mix of sun and clouds to start the work week with high temperatures around 45 degrees.
