Light snow will become moderate (up to 3/4″ per hour) especially in southern Connecticut between 11 AM and 1 PM.

Snow is expected to end by 4 p.m.

How much snow will we get? Between 3 and 5 inches.

As of noon, the National Weather Service said 2 inches of snow had fallen in Ridgefield and Norwalk and 1.2 inches in Weston.

Locally higher amounts are possible where heavy snow banding sets up.

ROADS

Currently, major highways are wet and slushy with snow cover on the shoulders.

During the next two hours roads are expected to become snow covered as the snow intensifies.

Travel conditions are expected to deteriorate as roads become slick with low visibility in the falling snow.

Tonight temperatures will drop into the upper 20s causing ice to form on roads.
