WINSTED, CT (WFSB) -

It may be April 10, but winter refuses to let go.

A storm on Tuesday left a coating of snow in parts of the state, particularly in Litchfield County, before changing over to rain.

"Just when you think it's done, here we go again," said Eric Regner of Winsted.

Regner had to brush off his vehicle.

"Snow blower is away, things are cleaned off. I had to dig out my brush this morning," he said. "It looks great on the ground, it's not sticking to the road, so you can't beat that!"

The Early Warning Weather Tracker headed to northwestern Connecticut to take a look at the conditions for the morning commute.

It had been in the Rockville area before heading to Norfolk and then to Winsted.

The crew reported seeing flakes beginning around 5 a.m.

Channel 3's meteorologists forecasted a coating to an inch in some spots before the precipitation transitioned to all rain by the afternoon, when temperatures rise into the 40 degree range.

"When will this end? It's terrible! I want to move," said Joanne Tenore of Winsted. "I thought it lasting into March was bad, nevermind into the second week of April."

Any accumulation was only expected to be on grassy surfaces, not on the roads.

However, drivers are still urged to be cautious because of the wet roads.

Many people continue to hope that real spring is just around the corner.

"We love it here, I wouldn't change it for the world," Regner said.
