As Snow Moves Out, Single-Digit Temperatures Returning Sunday

Temperatures have sunk back into the single digits Sunday, one day after a few inches of snow fell across the state.

On New Year’s Eve, Connecticut will welcome in the new year in temperatures as low as zero degrees. The National Weather Service (NWS) predicts a high of 14 and low of zero and clear, bright skies for Sunday.

Saturday’s snowfall caused some problems on the roads before the flurries started to wind down after 2 p.m., prompting the NWS to warn that the snow and bitter cold would cause slippery conditions, and that road surfaces that appear wet may actually be icy and slippery.

On Friday and Saturday, state police investigated 325 car accidents, 33 of them resulting in injuries and two in deaths, and participated in 264 motorist assists. State police have bolstered their roadway patrols in anticipation of New Year’s weekend revelries.

Parking bans prompted in several Hartford-area towns by Saturday’s snowfall have now been lifted.

Monday promises to be bright and cold, with temperatures not exceeding the low teens.

On Saturday, the AMC theater on New Britain Avenue in Plainville was evacuated after a sprinkler system break caused water damage in one of the building’s corridors.
