Snow totals range from a coating to half an inch

Posted: Updated:

The brunt of a developing winter storm is on its way out to sea, but it still brushed the state with some light snow on Friday.

Meteorologist Mark Dixon said the snow added up to between a coating and a half an inch across the state.

"As of the noon hour, the sun was coming out in western CT and the snow was winding down in southeastern CT," Dixon said.

He said the snow did lead to some slick roads during the morning commute.

"Any untreated surface could become slick, including parking lots, sidewalks and driveways," Dixon said. "Be careful walking to [and] from your vehicles."

"The snow is compliments of a developing storm off the mid-Atlantic coast," Dixon explained. "It will blossom into a huge one as it tracks far offshore, to the southeast of New England."

A few schools like Danbury and Wilton announced 2-hour delays as a result of slippery driving conditions. See the complete list here.

The snow wrapped up around mid-day, as Dixon forecasted.

The wind is expected to pick up a bit and temperatures will remain cold.

"Under a mix of sun and clouds, highs should top out in the lower to mid-30s," Dixon said.

Thanks to the wind, it could end up feeling like temps are in the 20s.

As for the weekend, the first half will feature sunshine and highs in the 40s.

Low temperatures will drop into the upper teens and 20s.

"Then Sunday, the chance for snow early in the day is almost not worth mentioning as a clipper passes to the south of Connecticut," Dixon said.

Temps will again be in the 40s.

Dixon said the weekend would be colder than normal.

"The average high in Windsor Locks for March 5 and 6 is 44 degrees," he said. "The normal low is 25 degrees."
