Fairfield forecast: Oh s'no! Pre-winter mess
Published 6:31 am, Friday, October 28, 2011
It's cold's early this morning, with temperatures in the 30s before 6 a.m., causing moisture on the roads to freeze while the daytime high temperature will reach only about 50 degrees.
And that's the best part of the weather forecast for southwestern Connecticut from the National Weather Service.
That's because tomorrow brings a storm expected to dump as much as several inches of snow on the region.
Today, meanwhile, will see partly sunny skies with a north wind between 9 and 11 mph, but the temperature will not rise much higher than 50 degrees.
Tonight, there is a chance of rain and snow late and into early tomorrow morning. The temperature will fall to the mid-30s.
Rain -- and probably snow as well -- will fall across the region tomorrow. The high temperature will be in the low-40s. It will also be breezy, with an east wind between 11 and 20 mph.
Rain and snow are expected to continue tomorrow night, becoming all snow late and into early Sunday. The overnight low temperature will tumble to the freezing mark -- 32 degrees, the NWS says.
The storm is expected to clear out later Sunday morning, with skies becoming sunny and the temperature reaching into the high-40s.
Monday should be partly sunny, the weather service predicts, with a high near 53 degrees.
