Less than a week after a blizzard walloped southwestern Connecticut with 3 feet of snow, more snow is expected to fall overnight.
The wintry precipitation, however, is expected to be fairly light, according to the National Weather Service.
Clouds will increase throughout the day, as today's high temperature rises to about 40 degrees, with a light and variable wind.
There is a 30 percent chance of mixed snow and rain after 4 p.m. the NWS says, with a greater likelihood of snow overnight into the early-morning hours. New snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches is possible.
Tomorrow will be partly sunny, with a high temperature in the low-40s. Nighttime will be mostly cloudy, with a low temperature about 30 degrees.
On Friday, there is a slight chance of showers after noon. Skies, however, will be partly sunny, with a high temperature in the upper-40s. Chance of precipitation is 20 percent, the NWS says. Showers -- and even light snow -- may fall overnight as temperatures fall to about 30 degrees.
Saturday should be partly sunny, with a high temperature about 40 degrees. Night skies will be partly cloudy as the temperature dips to a low in the low-20s.
The outlook for Sunday, according to the weather service, is mostly sunny and temperatures in the 30s.
