Snow showers possible for this weekend


Isolated rain/snow showers are possible for parts of Connecticut this weekend.

WFSB Meteorologist Bruce Deprest said this weekend's forecast does include snow. However, Deprest added there isn't any "meaningful" snow in the forecast and not make an impact on the ongoing drought.

Before Thanksgiving, the weekend will have a sunny start on Saturday with the possibility of clouds arriving.

A strong cold front will sweep through the state Saturday night which will lower temperatures.

The storm is coming from Minnesota into Canada with the cold front causing showers and thunderstorms.

"Rain showers are expected to change to snow showers over the higher elevations where there could be a light coating of snow," Deprest said.

The snow will mostly appear in the northwest area of the state.

"In the northwest hills there could be a coating to an inch of snow come tomorrow night into Sunday morning," Deprest said.

Not only is there the possibility of snow, but also strong winds.

"Sunday is going to be windy with winds gusting to 40 miles per hour or higher," Deprest said.

It will at best be a little frosty Saturday morning but temperatures will reach the upper 50s and low 60s.

Sunday will be cold with highs in the mid to upper 40s. There could be a few flurries Sunday night.

Sky conditions will vary from partly sunny to overcast and there is expected to be a lot of wind.

Although there could be a coating in some areas, it would be in isolated areas.
