So, Westport, more snow? It may only get worse

Another day, another snow storm.

That's been Westport's week so far ... and more of the white stuff could be headed this way by the weekend.

With 5 to 6 inches of new snow falling on southwestern Connecticut early Wednesday, classes in town schools had been cancelled hours earlier -- an apparent reaction to the criticism that engulfed Superintendent of Schools Elliott Landon's decision to call off classes during Monday morning's storm after many teachers and some students were already on their way to school.

The Westport Library closed for the day as well.

The National Weather has a winter storm warning in effect until 6 p.m. Wednesday as sporadic freezing rain, leaving a hazardous gilding atop the morning's heavy, wet snow, continues to make travel hazardous.

The freezing drizzle may continue until late Wednesday, as temperatures drop to an overnight low of about 20 degrees.

Thursday and Friday are expected to be mostly sunny, with daytime high temperatures reaching about 30 degrees, according to the NWS.

Saturday should be mostly cloudy, with a high temperature near 30, the weather service predicts.

But on Sunday, there is a 50-50 chance of snow all day long, and continuing into Monday with a 30 percent chance of more.

It's winter, so stay tuned ... some are calling it a nor'easter.
