"A moisture laden low pressure area over the central plains states will amble slowly towards the lower Great Lakes this weekend", reads the freezing rain warning issued around 10:50 a.m.

Rain will change to freezing rain on Saturday - you can expect to see it into the evening hours. Snow accumulation Sunday night should be less than a half inch.

By Sunday morning, many towns will be experiencing temperatures near freezing with rain, sleet, and possible slippery travel, especially in the higher elevations east and west of Hartford. Total ice accumulation of a tenth to one quarter inch is expected.
