Darien weather: Sunny today, but snow on the way
The brief break in the storm cycle that's been buffeting southwestern Connecticut continues today, but the National Weather Service says it will come to a snowy end early tomorrow.
After today's sunny skies and a high temperature of about 33 degrees, snowfall should start sometime after 3 a.m. tomorrow.
The precipitation will be mostly snow before 9 a.m., then mixing with freezing rain until midday. As the temperature climbs to the mid-30s, the wintry mix will become primarily rain with some snow.
The NWS predicts the accumulation of snow could be from 1 to 2 inches, with ice of less than a 0.1 inch possible.
There is still a chance of rain and snow tomorrow night, mainly before midnight. Temperatures will fall into the mid-20s, with a north wind between 7 and 9 mph. New snow accumulation of less than one-half inch is possible.
Sunday should be mostly sunny, with a high near 35 degrees, the weather service says.
On Monday, the storm cycle spins again: Daytime should be mostly cloudy, with a high temperature near 39, but rain and snow could start falling at night.
