Here Comes The Snow! Poor Travel Conditions....

There is growing confidence that a moderate to major winter storm will impact Connecticut Sunday and Monday. The NWS has issued a Winter Storm Watch for late Sunday through Monday afternoon.

Sunday (during the day)
Some areas of snow around; activity will be mainly light. Snow will pick up in intensity around sunset.

Sunday night
Worst of the storm - this is when most of the snow will fall. Travel will be difficult or impossible during the storm’s peak. A strong wind will result in blowing and drifting of snow. Power outages are possible.

Snow will become less intense and taper to flurries and snow showers. If the storm were to stall, then a light snow could fall for most of the day. A strong wind will continue all day; resulting in additional blowing and drifting of the snow.
