Some Snow, Slush and Freezing Rain

Westport Weather Whiz Jacob Meisel reports.

Well we have a very warm system moving into the area.

We will receive about one inch of snow tonight, but it will be more slush than snow.  Temperatures should fall just low enough that the slush may freeze, which combined with overnight sleet could cause very messy roads.  

Combine that with the freezing rain expected between 6 and 8 a.m. Tuesday and we will have very bad roads, that could result in a school delay.  By 8 or 9 a.m., the precipitation will resort to rain only, and the roads should begin to clear out as the ice melts.

Rain will continue Tuesday night into Wednesday, and then Wednesday night into Thursday it will mix and may turn to snow.  The snow may be heavy at times Thursday through Friday as the next storm may move through, but I will get more into that later.  Overall, be prepared for a possible school delay tomorrow, with the chance of snow days or delays Thursday and Friday.  Stay tuned!
