A quick April snow storm arrived Monday morning and led to school closures and a slow commute.

However, meteorologist Melissa Cole said it tapered off during the early afternoon hours and that the sun will make an appearance later in the day.

"As of the noon hour, the steadiest snow has exited the state, and no additional accumulation is likely," Cole said. "In fact, the sky will clear [Monday] afternoon as low pressure slips out to sea."

Early Warning Pinpoint Doppler was clear as of 1 p.m.

Temperatures should warm into the 40s.

A winter weather advisory was place for most of the state, but it expired shortly before 1 p.m.

Cole and meteorologist Scot Haney said the highest snow totals for this storm were in southwestern Connecticut.

Many places were close to the 6 inch mark forecasted during the morning broadcast.

A report in Fairfield measured 7.5 inches. Another in Hampton recorded 6 inches.

A number of businesses and other activities posted cancellations and closures. See the list here.

Another storm is expected to impact the state on Tuesday and Wednesday.

"It's associated warm front will bring clouds and rain to the state on Tuesday," Haney said. "The air may be cold enough for a wintry mix [Tuesday] morning in colder pockets west of Hartford, but the precipitation will change to all rain everywhere by afternoon."

High temperatures for the day should be in the 40s.

Wednesday will start soggy.

"A cold front will sweep across the state on Wednesday with more showers and perhaps a rumble of thunder," Haney said. "Showers will end during the afternoon and the sky will become partly sunny."

Temps could reach into the 60s; however, the wind will make it feel colder.
