A winter weather advisory is in effect for parts of Connecticut until 7 p.m.
WHAT’S NOW: Storm Watch Team Meteorologist Michele Powers says winter has set in and will stay that way through the rest of this week. We will have some light mixed rain and sleet as some brief snow showers wrap up tonight. Some serious cold weather will then take over. Temperatures will fall into the teens overnight. There will be a lot of ice into the morning. Wind chills will be in the single digits into tomorrow night and the weekend.
WHAT’S NEXT: Windy and cold conditions will get worse overnight. Treated surfaces will be wet and slushy, but anything untreated will be strictly ice from this point on. Temperatures are below freezing. This snow and ice mixture will be on the ground the rest of the week, with more snow added on Friday afternoon. We will then have another round of arctic air. Temperatures slowly recover by next Sunday and the following week.
