Possible snow showers for Friday - WFSB 3 Connecticut

Possible snow showers for Friday

Posted: Updated:

A storm is developing off the coast of the Carolinas overnight and could brush part of the state with some snow.

Overnight into Friday morning, temperatures will be in the upper teens and 20s.

There is a chance for some light snow, primarily in southeastern Connecticut.

Meteorologist Mark Dixon said the storm will “blossom into a huge one as it tracks far offshore, to the southeast of New England.”

But the latest model trends show the storm’s center going farther southeast, so Connecticut will be on the northwestern fringe.

Dixon said he is predicting a coating at most for parts of the state.

“Where it snows, roads could become slippery. For many, it will just be a breezy and cold end to the week with highs in the low and middle 30s,” Dixon said.

Any snow will quickly come to an end Friday evening, and temperatures will drop into the teens and lower 20s.

The beginning of the weekend will bring bright sunshine with highs near 40 degrees on Saturday.

Temperatures will drop again on Saturday night.

Early Sunday, a quick moving clipper will move through the region, possibly bringing some snow showers.

Dixon said other than that, you can expect a mix of sun and clouds with highs near 40.

Next week will bring mild temperatures!
