Toasty Today! Wintry Tonight With Two Mini Storms.

Groton was one degree shy of the 60 degree mark today!  Everyone in the state soared into the mid to upper 50s with some sunshine.  But the mild air is marching out.  Winter returns tonight as temperatures plummet into the 20s with a gusty northwest wind.

Showers tonight will mix in with a few sleet pellets and snow flakes as a storm slides south of Connecticut. A lingering shower is possible early on Tuesday. The rest of the day is mostly cloudy and seasonably cool with highs near the 40 degree mark.  Tuesday night a bigger storm grazes the state.  But this one will be close enough to bring a steady batch of snow with some rain/sleet mixing in (mainly rain for the shore).  A fresh coating of snow is possible with 2"-4" across most of the state before a change to rain or sleet. Southern CT and the shoreline will see mixing first, which is why accumulations in these areas will be lower than the rest of the state.  Cold air follows late week.

Tonight: Mostly cloudy. Low: 26-33. Chance brief rain/snow shower late.

Tomorrow: Chance early rain snow shower (southern CT).  Otherwise, Mostly cloudy. High: 39-43.

Tomorrow night: Snow developing, mixing with rain along the shoreline.  Light to moderate snow overnight.

Wednesday: Slippery AM commute. Snow mixing and changing to sleet and rain, ending late day. (See graphic for accumulations) High: Upper 30s.
