Showers possible for Friday, then snow this weekend

Posted: Updated:

After a wet, windy and mild day on Thursday, isolated showers will be possible throughout the evening and overnight.

Meteorologist Mark Dixon said some parts of the state saw over 1 inch of rain, like Norwich, while Hartford saw about a half inch.

Showers will be isolated overnight, but conditions will be improving. Lows will be in the upper 30s and lower 40s.

Track any showers with Early Warning Pinpoint Doppler here.

Friday will bring more clouds than sun with a chance for some isolated showers.

"The atmosphere will be a bit unstable in the wake of Thursday’s storm system and any sunshine will just create more instability," Dixon said.

The best chance for storms will be during the afternoon. Temperatures will be in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

A clipper will head in our direction, and likely pass south of the state on Saturday. But, it comes close enough to bring some precipitation.

Dixon said "based on the eventual track, with enough cold air in place, light accumulating snow will be possible in some spots (especially inland)."

Snow may fall and then transition to rain in some areas, and then change back to snow before ending.

Upwards of 1 to 3 inches of snow could fall. Temperatures will drop Saturday night into the 20s.

Sunday will be partly sunny, breezy and chilly with temperatures in the 40s.
