HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) - Snow made its way into the state around 1 p.m. on Saturday, quickly deteriorating road conditions.

It started in western Connecticut, making its way east. It spread across the entire state by 4 p.m.

Weather alerts were also issued well ahead of the winter storm.

Track it with the Ch. 3 Interactive Radar here.

The weather alerts span Saturday afternoon through Sunday morning, which prompted Channel 3 to issue an Early Warning Weather Alert.

Part of Litchfield County is under a winter storm warning, while the rest of the state is under a winter weather advisory.

Most towns across the state will see between 3 and 4 inches of snow, however town in southeastern CT will likely only see about 2 inches.

Meanwhile, in the northwestern part of the state, towns could see up to 5 or 6 inches of snow.

"It's a pretty fast moving system," said Meteorologist Melissa Cole.

The worst travel conditions will be now through 10/11 p.m.

As day shifts to night, there may be a mix of sleet and freezing rain, and then a transition to rain.

The rain will move out of southern New England in the morning and Sunday will be dry with a mix of sun and clouds.

"Throughout the day on Sunday we expect a mix of sun and clouds with highs near 40; however, a breeze will make it feel a bit colder," Cole said.

A big chill could be the headline for Monday.

It looks like temperatures may not get out of the 20s through Wednesday.
