Snow to impact Monday morning commute

Posted: Updated:
HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Sunday was a nice day to close out the weekend, but we’re in store for a potentially messy Monday morning commute.

Some snow is on the way as we move in to the beginning of the work week.

Eyewitness News declared an Early Warning Weather Day, as the morning commute could be tricky.

Eyewitness News will go on at 4am on Monday morning to keep you updated on the latest track of the storm, and the conditions of the roads.

Meteorologist Mike Cameron said there may be a few snow showers, if not a steady period of light snow, for Monday morning.

Track the snow with the Early Warning Pinpoint Doppler here.

“A weak disturbance will pass through southern New England at this time, but it will have little moisture available to make a heavy snow,” Cameron said.

The snow will start around 4 a.m. in western Connecticut, and will cover the state by about 6 and 7 a.m.

Accumulations will be light, Cameron said, between 1 and 2 inches, with less at the shoreline.

Cameron said there is a chance for patchy black ice on side streets as well.

Snow will end by early afternoon, and the rest of the day will be partly sunny with light winds and temperatures in the 40s.

Any dusting of snow will melt during the afternoon, he said.

Tuesday will be partly cloudy with temperatures only in the 40s.

Light rain or a wintry mix will develop Tuesday afternoon, toward the evening.

Cameron said light rain or possibly a wintry mix will continue Tuesday night. There may be some lingering rain or some wet snow in the hills on Wednesday.

A blast of cold air moves in Wednesday night, Thursday and Friday. Cameron said it is going to feel like the middle of winter, with highs on Thursday only in the 30s to near 40 degrees, along with a brisk wind.
