While Winter Storm Diana will be winding down this evening, slippery conditions are expected to persist throughout the night.

The Sunday storm brought several inches of snow to most of the state, along with a wintry mix.

Several snowfall total reports were coming into Eyewitness News, with 4 inches of snow being reported in Avon, 3.5 inches in Wethersfield, 4.8 inches in Burlington, and 4.5 inches in Columbia.

An Early Warning Weather Day was issued as the storm started moving into the state around 7 a.m. on Sunday.

Meteorologist Mike Cameron said snow showers will still pass through the state tonight, but accumulations will be spotty, with only a coating expected.

"These snow showers won’t have huge staying power, as they will taper off by mid-morning Monday," Cameron said.

A winter weather advisory is in effect for the rest of the state, until 7 p.m. on Sunday.

During the late morning on Sunday, heavier bands of snow moved across the state. Some mixed precipitation was seen on the Pinpoint Doppler, however it was along Long Island Sound.

As the afternoon went on, snow got lighter, and a wintry mix moved through parts of Fairfield and New Haven counties.

Temperatures were in the 30s inland, and near 40 at the shoreline.
