FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. — It's hard to believe that Monday is the first day of spring with the remains of this week's blizzard piled up. And winter will make one last blast this weekend — it's just not certain how much snow it will bring across Fairfield County. 

There is still some uncertainty surrounding the projected snowfall totals for the storm that will impact the area Saturday night into Sunday morning, but the Saturday update from the National Weather Service says the likelihood is for less accumulation than what was projected Friday.

Generally, 1 to 2 inches of snow is expected across Fairfield County, with a chance of a snow/rain mix Saturday afternoon and accumulating snow starting late Saturday.

However, there is the chance for more. (See both maps above.)

The chances of seeing 2 inches or more of accumulation is 50 percent. But there is still a chance of up to 4 to 5 inches of snowfall.

There is a chance of some light snow or snow flurries late Saturday morning into the early afternoon, with little or no accumulation, and temperatures in the mid-30s.

Most of the accumulation is expected late Saturday evening into early Sunday morning.

Sunday will be partly sunny with a high near 40.

The first day of spring is Monday, March 20, will be sunny with a high in the low 40s.
