Light snow fell on parts of the state early Sunday morning, leaving messy conditions on some roads.

Less than an inch of snow of snow fell over night in various towns in Fairfield, New Haven and Litchfield counties, according to the Community Collaborative Rain, Hail and Snow Network.

A winter weather advisory remains in effect until 9 a.m. Sunday for northern Fairfield and New Haven counties and until 1 p.m. for Litchfield County. The National Weather Service’s initial advisory was supposed to be in effect until noon. The advisory was canceled at 5 a.m. in southern New Haven County.


In northern Fairfield and New Haven counties, residents should expect snow, sleet and spotty light freezing rain. Accumulations of up to two inches, especially in the higher elevations, are possible, according to the National Weather Service.

Conditions are anticipated to be worse in Litchfield County, where snow and sleet accumulations could reach one to three inches. In Litchfield Hills, around one-tenth of an inch of ice is possible, the National Weather Service said.

The agency warned of slippery road conditions in all three counties.
