Snow will be flying across much of Connecticut Tuesday evening, with many areas getting a light accumulation.

As the rate of snow picks up and temperatures cool slightly, slippery and slushy spots will develop on some roadways and sidewalks.

The modest storm began as rain across southern Connecticut but will then gradually mix with and change to snow. Areas farther north will continue to receive primarily snow.

The snow will generally be light and should wrap up Tuesday night.

Accumulations will generally be a coating to an inch across coastal Connecticut, but can reach in the neighborhood of 3 inches in the northern part of the state.

Motorists and pedestrians should be on the alert for areas of black ice.

As the storm ends and temperatures slip back a few degrees overnight, untreated wet areas can become icy and more slushy spots can develop.
