Occasional light snow, sleet and rain this morning, drying out this afternoon, sun returns Sunday

Our latest storm delivered a good 1"-1.5" of much-needed precipitation since yesterday with an inch of sleet across northern areas. However, we escaped a major sleet and ice storm last night because a dry slot intruded into the area preventing major issues today. This storm is history with precipitation ending mid-day along with the possibility of a little sun peaking through the clouds this afternoon and evening.

Temperatures then slowly warm up for Sunday and the beginning of next week before more rain moves back in by Tuesday.  Nice weather returns Wednesday and Thursday before a second bigger rain storm potentially deluges Connecticut next Thursday night into Friday.
