What will be a major rainstorm will begin as some ice in parts of Connecticut. Temperatures have dropped off quickly this evening and faster than computer models forecasted.
Given the fact temperatures are so far below what was forecasted it seems likely a period of ice will overspread Connecticut late tonight. Easterly winds will develop and bring in warmer air quickly, but areas in Litchfield County could pick up 0.1″ of freezing rain. This is certainly enough to cause problems on untreated roads.
Once the freezing rain ends Sunday will be a soaker. 1″-3″ of rain is expected with locally higher amounts possible.
