CT could see slippery morning commute after storm

A file photo of a snow-covered street in Stamford, Conn., taken Thursday, Dec. 17, 2020. The city mainly saw rain during a storm that hit the state Sunday, Jan. 3, 2021.

After a storm hit the state, bringing rain, snow and ice to the area, the National Weather Service reminded drivers of potentially slippery roads on Monday morning.

The weather service called for about 2 to 3 inches of snow north of the Interstate 95 corridor. South of that highway, municipalities mostly saw rain with some brief periods of snowfall.

New Fairfield received 2 inches of snow and Bridgeport saw just over half an inch as of 7 p.m. Sunday, according to the NWS. There were no other Connecticut snowfall totals immediately available Monday morning.

Around 4:30 a.m., the weather service said a band of light snow would move through the area early Monday morning, specifically north of I-95. Less than an inch of additional accumulation is likely.

“There may be a few slippery spots while traveling this morning, especially on untreated roadways and walkways,” the weather service said. “Use caution and allow extra time to reach your destination.”

The latest forecasts indicate any additional snowfall will likely taper off by 7 a.m. Monday. The rest of the day is expected to be mostly cloudy, with a high around 40 degrees. Temperatures will drop to around 29 degrees Monday night.
