It's seems clear that all of CT got measurable last night (not sure about the SE part of the state though since I saw some maps showing rain there when it was snowing elsewhere). Also saw dustings in southern Westchester though all the major tri-state area stations except Bridgeport claimed just a trace.
Here in southeastern Connecticut, we indeed did get a trace of snow Monday night/tue morning on grassy surfaces and the sides of the road. I saw some wet snow on the sides of I-95 east into New Haven as well. It melted pretty quick.

it still looks like we could see another light dusting on Thur night and again this weekend. Otherwise, the pattern still looks to turn quite warm next week (last week of Jan) and into early Feb. NWS/WC is showing highs near 50 F for NYC, 58 F for Washington Dc, and near 70 F for areas as far north as Virginia Beach by next Wed/Thur/Fri. So I doubt any snow will hang around after this week.

Another "weather geek" friend of mine who's a bit more CT based than I passed this on, sad and still relatively young:

Dr. Mel passes away at 66 | Storm Team 8 | WTNH.com Connecticut

When I was a kid in Westchester I did used to play around with my TV to see what "distance" stations I could get so I did see him a couple of times....

So sad. I always enjoyed him. I can't believe he was only 66. I always thought he was much older.

Nothing changed since my last post except the change to rain and the timing. Should stay all snow over the weekend and start earlier.

Friday January 20, 2012 - Generally 1-3" manageable snow. Starts Thursday after 7pm. Ends Friday before 7am.


THURSDAY NIGHT...THE QUICK MOVING UPPER LEVEL SHORT WAVE AND SURFACE
LOW PASS NORTH OF THE REGION. WITH 850 TEMPERATURES BELOW
-5 C...WILL CARRY ALL SNOW. QPF VALUES ARE NOT VERY HIGH WITH
LESS THAN A QUARTER OF AN INCH EXPECTED.

THE HIGHEST VALUES ARE EXPECTED TO BE ACROSS CONNECTICUT AND LONG ISLAND.
WITH ALL SNOW EXPECTED...

Saturday January 21, 2012 - Bigger threat. Some spots up to half foot. (Im thinking north of 84) maybe mixing issues along the coast. Generally 3-6 inches for entire state.

From Euro model.
