A day-long dusting of light snow Tuesday by evening had accumulated into a white blanket of 4 to 5 inches in the third significant snowfall before winter "officially" begins Saturday.

There is a Winter Weather Advisory in effect until 6 p.m., according to the National Weather Service, when the snow is expected to start slacking off. After 7 p.m., theough skies are expected to remain cloudy, snow is forecast to stop as temperatures fall to a low of about 20 degrees overnight.

Tomorrow, clouds are expected to give way to the sun as tempatures rise to a high in the upper-30s.

Meanwhile, police report fewer than 10 accidents on local roads by late afternoon.

The Fairfield Public Library, however, plans to close at 5 p.m. Tuesday because of the inclement conditions.
