Winter Storm Warnings

A Blizzard Warning is in effect for much of Southern CT from Sunday through Monday afternoon with snow accumulations over a foot in many areas and strong winds causing blowing and drifting of snow. Visibility will get down to zero at times making it dangerous if not impossible on the roads. Strong winds may also take down trees, power lines and Christmas decorations. Wind gusts could get up to 45-60 mph.

A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for the rest of the state from Sunday night into Monday. Snow accumulations will range from 10”-20”. Blowing and drifting snow will make for difficult and dangerous travel conditions. Snow will start off light Sunday morning getting steadier and heavier as the day progresses. The worst of the storm will be overhead Sunday night into early Monday with snowfall rates of 1”-3” per hour and whiteout conditions.
