thA Winter Storm Warning has been issued for New Haven and Fairfield counties from midnight until 6 p.m. on Saturday.

Snow is expected to start after midnight Saturday, but mainly predawn (much earlier than our previous story). It then transitions to a mix, then end late afternoon and early evening.

Orange will most likely end up with 1-2 inches of slush.

The Orange Highway Department is ready to go. Foreman Donny Foyer said, “I don’t think it will be too bad. We’re ready for whatever comes. It won’t be like last weekend with all the black ice. It’s nothing we haven’t dealt with before.”

This will be a wet snow, so if your kids get outside really early in the morning before the changeover, they may be able to build a small snowman.

High temperatures for Saturday are forecast to be in the 30s.

Sunday is expected to be partly sunny with highs in the 30s and lows in the 20s.

On Monday we should see more snow, but the fluffy, easy to shovel white stuff, not good for building snowmen.
