Potentially big storm could arrive Friday

Some more light snow is expected today, Wednesday, Feb. 6, as a big storm works its way toward Connecticut later this week. That big storm could bring a lot snow or rain on Friday — but it's too early to tell how this area will be affected.

After a Tuesday of light snow in the area, more light snow is expected Wednesday before the sun arrives and the temperature rises to 40.

The weather is expected to remain clear until Thursday night when there is another chance of snow, mainly after midnight. Thursday's high is expected to be near 32 and the low 26.

The "potential coastal storm could produce heavy precipitation and strong winds Friday through Friday night," according to National Weather Service hazardous weather outlook issued Tuesday evening. "Some accumulations could see significant snow accumulations."

The precipitation is expected to start as snow across most of the area Thursday night before becoming rain across coastal sections of Connecticut on Friday, according to the weather service. There could be a rain-snow mix on Friday in southwest Connecticut.

Friday night, anywhere it's raining is expected to turn to snow in Connecticut. The snow could accumulate significantly overnight Friday into Saturday as the back end of the storm makes its way across the region.

The rest of Saturday is expected to be mostly sunny with a high of 36; the low could be down to 17. Sunday is also expected to sunny with a high near 38 before snow showers  on Sunday night when the low is expected to be around 28.
