A storm that began working its way across Connecticut Tuesday night with snow left mostly wet roads for commuters Wednesday morning.

Though snow was minimal for most of the state, meteorologist Scot Haney continued to recommend that drivers take it slow.

"The good news is that it's just about over," Haney said.

During the 4 a.m. hour, Early Warning Pinpoint Doppler showed mainly rain across the state. By 5 a.m., only northeastern Connecticut had some precipitation.

"It's just about done, but there is some drizzle and some fog," Haney said. "So we're not out of the woods yet."

Most of the state was in the clear.

"Some roads over interior portions of the state are slick and a bit snow covered, especially in the higher elevations of the state," Haney warned. "While this wasn't a big storm by any means, the timing was not good for the morning commute."

Snowfall accumulations ranged from a coating on some grassy surfaces to an inch or two in the hills of northern and western Connecticut.

"There will be partial clearing later [Wednesday]," he said.

Daytime high temperatures will climb into the mid-40s, according to Haney. It'll be similar to Tuesday's weather.

"Then it'll turn much colder later this week," he said. "Friday, Saturday and Sunday, we're talking about some really cold air here."

The seven-day forecast had 15 degrees as an overnight low between Saturday and Sunday.
