Storm Team 8 says light snow began developing by 4 a.m. and became statewide around 7 a.m.

Areas near the shoreline Interstate 95 corridor will see some mix/changing to ice and rain.

Chief Meteorologist Gil Simmons says the storm will have spotty snowfall, meaning snow could stop falling for a period of time and then resume later on.

Like Sunday’s storm, the snowfall is set to end between 4-6 p.m.

Another active weather pattern may be showing up Thursday and Sunday. Be sure to check back later in the week for updates.

Snow totals

While Storm Team 8 says this won’t be a big system, it will still drop a few inches of snow – and a wintry mix – making for slick conditions.

Areas near the shoreline should expect just a coating or around 1″, while areas more inland could get 2-4″. The Litchfield area could see around 4″.

Simmons said roads could be slick Wednesday morning. Drivers are urged to use caution when on roadways Tuesday.
