Storm Watch Team Meteorologist Michele Powers says to expect cold nights ahead. Powers says some parts of western Connecticut could see the first flakes of the season on Wednesday.
WHAT'S NEW: A storm offshore will develop and slide just south and east of western Connecticut tomorrow. With colder temperatures in place, parts of the area could see some snow mixing in with chilly rain. Rain showers will start overnight and continue into the first half of Wednesday. Risk of snow mixing north of the Merritt. No accumulation expected. Under 1" of rainfall. 
WHAT'S NEXT: After the storm exits, very cold air settles in. NWS has issued Freeze Warnings for coastal Connecticut, with temperatures dropping into the lower 30s. It will be the coldest air of the season. Today was the coldest day of fall so far since late March. Tomorrow will be even colder, followed by the coldest night on Wednesday. The growing season is still ongoing here and this freeze will end it. After Thursday, temperatures recover with highs climbing back into the 50s and even lower 60s. Next weekend could be dry!
WEDNESDAY: Chilly. Rain and wintry mix early. High of 46.
THURSDAY: Sunny, high of 50.
FRIDAY: Sunny, high of 57.
SATURDAY: Mostly sunny, high of 60.
SUNDAY: Partly sunny, high 62
