Freezing rain advisory issued

Just what we don’t need: a freezing rain advisory from 3 to 9 a.m. Monday.

The National Weather Service has posted the advisory for both Fairfield and New Haven Counties.

Freezing rain, possibly mixed with snow and sleet could make travel hazardous late tonight and through Monday morning.

Untreated roads will become slick and icy, but should improve late Monday morning as temperatures rise and the mix changes to rain.

In Litchfield County, a winter weather advisory has been issued from 4 a.m. to noon.

The NWS says a combination of snow, sleet and freezing rain is likely there. Snowfall will be less than an inch.
