Again? Yes, again!

More snow fell yet again Tuesday morning on Fairfield and the rest of southwestern Connecticut -- about 2 to 3 inches or so by midday. Schools in Fairfield were closed again for the day as a result, and municipal offices and the libraries opened two hours later than usual.

The snow largely stopped falling by noontime, but the National Weather Service said that a few more flakes, possibly mixed with icy rain, could fall periodically through afternoon.

That said, the NWS predicts gradually clearing later today -- and perhaps even a little sunshine -- as the storm moves away and the temperature rises to a daytime high near 40 degrees.

Tonight is expected to be partly cloudy, with a low temperature in the mid-20s and a west wind 8 to 13 mph, according to the weather service.

On Wednesday, there is a 40 percent chance of rain, between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m., as skies remain cloudy and the temperature warms to a high in the low-40s.

Thursday promises to be mostly sunny, with a high temperature in the mid-40s.

And Friday is expected to be even warmer -- a high temperature in the low-50s -- although fog and showers are also likely, according to the NWS.

Saturday should see cleaer skies and temperatures rising to nearly 50 degrees.
