A new storm from the Southwestern states has arrived Tuesday and will bring a dose of accumulating snow and travel delays to Connecticut.

Enough snow will fall to make roads slushy and slippery around Hartford and to have to shovel and plow around the state in general during the late morning and afternoon hours. Flight delays in the region are likely, due to deicing operations and slippery runways.

The snow will last an average of six to eight hours and will reach from Washington, D.C., Baltimore and Philadelphia, to New York City, Providence, R.I., and Boston.

The storm is forecast to bring an average of 3 inches locally, but a few locations along the I-95 corridor can receive up to around 6 inches.

The ultra fast movement of the storm will allow the snow to end later Tuesday afternoon.

Arctic air will follow the storm during the middle and latter part of the week. Many locations from the Ohio Valley to the Northeast will have their lowest temperatures of the season so far.

Locally, nighttime temperatures can dip into the teens around the city, but to the single digits in the northern and western suburbs Thursday night.

Yet another storm with snow could affect the area during part of the coming weekend.
