SHELTON WEATHER MONDAY 8:30 P.M.: Watch out for ice on Tuesday morning commute

A Winter Weather Advisory now is in effect through 9 a.m. on Tuesday in Shelton and most of Connecticut due to the potential for icing on roads and other ground surfaces.

Temperatures are expected to plummet and winds will pick up on Monday night into Tuesday morning, and this will lead to “significant icing,” according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

The NWS warned of “hazardous travel — especially on untreated surfaces — due to snow and ice covered roads and walkways. Scattered power outages are also possible from falling tree limbs.”

Real cold on Tuesday

The daytime high on Tuesday in Shelton will only be around 20 degrees, and the nighttime low should be about 14 degrees.
