FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. — It was beginning to be a white day-after-Christmas as snow began to fall in Fairfield County on Wednesday afternoon.

Rain, snow and sleet were expected to continue through Thursday night with little accumulation, the National Weather Service said. Temperatures on Wednesday afternoon were in the mid- to high 30s and expected to go up to the mid-40s by Thursday, the forecast said.

The snow and wet weather was not the only concern for people Wednesday, with the National Weather Service issuing several warnings for the area.

A high wind warning was issued at about 3:30 p.m., with gusts expected to range from 25 to 35 mph, with some gusts reaching as high as 60 mph. The strongest wind gusts were expected Wednesday night.

A coastal flood warning was in effect from 8 p.m. to midnight and then a coastal flood advisory for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Thursday. Tides were expected to be 2 to 5 feet above astronomical tides during those times.

The weather service also issued a hazardous weather outlook because of the high winds, snow and flooding threats.
