The inch or two of snow that fell across southwestern Connecticut overnight is expected to be quickly swept away today by periodic light rain and rising temperatures, according to the National Weather Service.

But travel on roads throughout the region this morning because of the snow cover and icy glaze.

Occasional rain is expected to fall today as the daytime high temperature rises to the mid-40s. There will be a west wind around 11 mph, the NWS says.

Rain is also likely tonight until about 7 p.m., then clouds will begin to dissipate later. The overnight low temperature is expected to fall to the mid-30s and the wind will be west between 10 and 15 mph.

Tomorrow will be sunny with a high temperature in the upper-30s. There will be a west wind between 17 and 23 mph, with gusts as high as 33 mph. Tomorrow night will be mostly clear, with a low around 20 degrees.

Thursday also is expected to be mostly sunny, with a high near 36 degrees. There is a chance of snow showers overnight with mostly cloudy skies and a low temperature in the mid-20s.

Friday should be mostly sunny, the weather service predicts, with a high temperature in the mid-30s.
