DePrest said overnight temperatures will stay above freezing across the state
Connecticut residents should sleep in on Saturday morning. Early risers will wake up to heavy rain and gusty rains.
“Rain could change to snow in the hills of Northern Connecticut and Massachusetts. Cold air is lacking with this storm, but if the precipitation falls heavily, there could be enough dynamic cooling to change the rain to wet snow,” DePrest said.
With the possibility of wet snow, there could be power outages.
The northern portions of the state could even see a coating to 2 inches of snow.
The rest of the state will likely see between 0.5 inches to 1 inch of rain with more possible in some spots.
