FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- A small, fast-moving weather system expected to move through Fairfield County on Thursday night into Friday morning will bring snow to the area and leave bitter cold temperatures in its wake.
Skies will be sunny Wednesday, but temperatures will climb only into the mid-20s with wind chill values in the teens or lower.
Clouds will increase Thursday with a high of about freezing. Snow becomes more likely in the evening hours and overnight, but less than one inch of accumulation is expected. The chance of precipitation is 70 percent.
Flurries and the occasional snow shower could linger in the area through 10 a.m. Friday before gradually clearing. The high temperature will be around freezing but is expected to drop into the 20s during the day and well into the single digits overnight.
Chilly temperatures will linger Saturday despite sunny skies with a high of 21 degrees.
Meteorologists are tracking another potential storm that could impact the region Sunday night. Potential accumulations could be 6 to 12 inches, but the storm's path is still uncertain and will greatly impact how much snow falls in the area.
The blizzard billed for earlier this week did not live up to expectations. Read about why the blizzard fizzled here on the Daily Voice.
