A wintry mix is forecast for Sunday night into Monday morning, with between 2 and 5 inches of accumulation possible.

“We have a winter weather advisory from 9 this evening to 10 (am) Monday,” said Gary Lessor, meteorologist with the Weather Center at Western Connecticut University. “We’re looking at snow some sleet and rain is possible in the overnight hours.”

Temperatures will remain above freezing for most of Monday, Lessor said. Commuters remaining at home for President’s Day will likely make travel easier.

Mixed precipitation causes heavier snow which can be difficult to remove from vehicles and driveways.

“I've heard a lot of people breaking their snowblowers because of the weight of the snow,” Lessor said.

Two more storms are expected to move through the area on Tuesday and Saturday. Both are forecast to arrive in the afternoon and continue in the following morning, delivering between 2 and 5 inches of mixed precipitation.

“No storm looks to be a blockbuster, they’re all these moderate storms,” Lessor said.

Out of the three, Sunday’s appears to be poised to deliver the most snowfall.
