National Weather Service: Snow, Rain Might Be Coming Thursday, Friday

It might snow Thursday night and Friday morning, the National Weather Service said — or rain. Or both.

The service said there is a slight chance of a some snow and rain early Thursday afternoon, and a better chance of snow overnight.

There is a “slight chance of rain and snow showers between noon and 1 p.m., then a slight chance of rain showers” Thursday, the service said. The chance of precipitation is only 20 percent.

Rain and snow showers are more likely to happen between 11 p.m. Thursday and 2 a.m. Friday, with snow likely after 2 a.m., the service said. The chance of precipitation Thursday night and Friday morning is 60 percent; less an inch would fall.

The snow would end Friday morning, the weather service said, but there are more chances of snow on the weekend.

There’s a chance of snow during the day Sunday, and snow is likely Sunday night, the service said.

As the chances of snow go up, the change of temperature will become more drastic.

Wednesday’s high temperature is expected to be in the mid-30s and the low in the mid-20s. The temperatures will be more erratic after that. Thursday’s high will be in the low 40s, with a low in the mid-20s, and Friday’s high will only reach the 30s, with a low around 10, the weather service said.

The amount of snow Tuesday morning took some by surprise. Towns in the Hartford area got a few inches, when only a coating was expected. It snowed more along the shoreline, where some towns got 7 inches, the weather service said.
