Very light snow is dusting southwestern Connecticut early this morning, and the National Weather Service predicts that whatever scant accumulation there is by afternoon will melt as the precipitation changes to rain and temperatures rise.

Snowfall accumulation -- which yesterday had been forecast from 2 to 4 inches -- is now expected to be only a trace to up to one-half inch.

Skies today will be cloudy, with the daytime high temperature rising to the low-40s. There will be a north wind between 6 and 11 mph.

Cloudy conditions continue into evening, but there will be gradual clearing by a blustery north wind between 11 and 20 mph. The temperature will fall to a low of about 20 degrees, the NWS says.

Tomorrow is expected to be mostly cloudy with a high temperature in the mid-30s. There will be a northwest wind between 17 and 21 mph. There is a slight chance of snow showers tomorrow evening before 9 p.m. and temperatures will drop into the high-teens.

Monday should be mostly sunny, with a high near 38 degrees. At night, clouds move in and the temperature will drop to the upper-20s.

Tuesday, the weather service predicts, there's a chance of rain and snow showers after noon. The daytime high is expected to be in the mid-40s.
