Wed Storm

Accumulations: We are still anticipating 4”-10” of snow with the highest amounts in southeastern CT and the lowest amounts in northwestern Litchfield County. There will be a wide range of totals with this storm.

Timing: The first round of snow arrived ahead of schedule. Southern Connecticut already got into some of the heavier snow bands with a quick 1”-3”, making the evening commute slippery and creating traffic problems. The second round of snow is approaching for tonight. The heaviest snow will be 10 PM - 3AM. But the storm is already gone by sunrise. So this will be another fast mover. The morning commute tomorrow will depend on how quickly the plows can clean up the mess from the night before.

Other Factors: There still could be some sleet at times in southeast CT. But this is mainly a snow event. This will be a more of a wet, heavier snow than a lot of the other storms we have seen so far this year. Winds will increase overnight, gusting up near 40 mph.
