FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- The snowstorm that dropped 2 to 4 inches of snow Tuesday across Fairfield County has passed, but the National Weather Service has issued a Special Weather Statement warning of black ice and slick conditions Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning.

Those conditions are especially likely on walkways and untreated roads, which are either wet or covered with snow and ice.

Temperatures are expected to fall into the 20s by Tuesday night, with any slush or standing water refreezing.

A thin sheet of ice is likely on any untreated surfaces early Wednesday, resulting in slick conditions on roads and sidewalks from the residual moisture left from the storm with temperatures below freezing. Be alert and use caution while walking and driving. 

Icy conditions will continue throughout Wednesday, which will be mostly sunny but with a high of only about 30 degrees. Thursday and Friday should also be dry, but temperatures are not expected to climb past the freezing mark.

The next chance of snow is Saturday, with a 70 percent chance and a high temperature of 35 degrees.
