HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

After a clear and sunny holiday weekend, changes are in store for Monday.

The week will start out dry, then turn cloudy, and wet or icy for most, said Meteorologist Mike Cameron.

A low-pressure system will move in mid-afternoon, and turn Monday morning’s sunny skies to clouds. The low-pressure system will bring along plunging temperatures and precipitation, said Cameron, leading to a chance of sleet or freezing rain.

This wet weather may make some roads slippery after 3 p.m. Despite the drop in temperature, however, a warm front will cause any freezing rain, to rain.

Through Monday night and into Tuesday, temperatures will rise enough to keep the rain as rain, said Cameron.
