Snow showers moved into the state from Massachusetts and New York State on Friday afternoon may cause a few headaches. Within them, there may be a few heavier squalls that could quickly coat roads and reduce visibility.  

The wind has also picked up. Gusts were as high as 33 MPH at Bradley Field in the last several minutes.

"The wind will stay blustery into the evening," WFSB Meteorologist Mike Cameron said. "Some showers may contain a heavier squall that could being visibility down briefly to under a quarter mile and also cover the road with a coating to an inch of slush. Any snow shower will not last but a few minutes -- but in only those few minutes, conditions might quickly change from dry to slippery."

Cameron said "any residual moisture from these may refreeze after sunset," so roads could be hazardous on Friday afternoon and evening.
