Just when you thought it was safe to get some of those plants in the ground, or uncover some of that patio furniture, hold on a minute. Mother Nature has something a little different in mind.

According to the National Weather Service, some parts of Connecticut and the Hudson Valley could see rain turn to wet snow early Friday morning as temperatures drop to the low to mid 30's, especially in higher elevated areas.

The wet snow should turn to all rain by later Friday morning, but it's still going to stay on the chilly side with highs on Friday around 45.

If you're in Litchfield County and some of the higher elevated areas of upstate New York, you could actually see anywhere from 3-8 inches of snow, while other areas could see a dusting before the change over to rain. But don't worry, it's New England, if you don't like the weather, just wait five minutes. Milder, but still below normal temps should return by Saturday.

Here's the official NWS forecast as we approach the weekend.

  • Thursday Night: Rain and Snow likely with lows around 35
  • Friday: Rain and Snow likely before 9 AM, then a chance of rain with higs during the day near 48
  • Saturday: Partly Sunny highs during the day around 56
