HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Snow began winding down on Sunday morning, with most of the storm out of the state by about 10:30 a.m. 

Overnight snow came down at moderate to sometimes heavy rates, Meteorologist Mike Cameron said, leaving behind as much as 7 inches of new snowfall in some places.

Temperatures did not moderate as much as expected so snow totals did increase, according to Cameron.

However, on Sunday the milder feeling, with readings in the 30s, “is here to stay,” Cameron said.

The storm was expected to bring plenty of moisture, which could add extra weight to roofs.

Cameron said he wasn't too worried about stream or basement flooding from this storm, however leaky roofs are possible once the melting begins.

The cold weather won't be gone for long and temperatures will plummet Sunday night and Monday morning.

Any melting that occurs on Sunday will quickly freeze leaving the possibility of an icy commute for Monday morning.

A winter weather advisory was issued for all of Connecticut from Saturday afternoon through Sunday morning.
