UPDATED FRIDAY 7:15A.M. — Snow has fallen in Greenwich throughout the night, canceling school and causing a mess for commuters heading in on Friday morning.

A winter weather advisory is in effect for the region through the morning and snow will continue. According to The National Weather Service, a winter weather advisory for southwest Connecticut is in effect from 6 p.m. Thursday, March 7, through noon on Friday, March 8.

Two to five inches of wet snow is possible as temperatures fall into the lower 30s Thursday night.

Periods of light snow and rain today will become all snow this evening and continue through tonight before tapering off by noon Friday. Snowfall could be moderate at times, the weather service said.

Winds will be from the north at 10 to 20 mph, with gusts up to 25.

As of Thursday morning, Greenwich schools were open without any delays or issues, Metro-North was reporting good service on the New Haven and Danbury branch lines, and, despite some strong winds, CL-P reported no outages in town.

The storm is expected to move away Friday night, as skies become just cloudy. Saturday will be sunny with a high near 47 and light winds at 7 to 10 mph.
