Spring Snow!

Another storm is tracking out of the Rockies and will move south of Connecticut by tomorrow night into Thursday with more snow. 1"-3" of snow is expected across most of the state with higher amounts in the northern hills, with 3”-6” of snow expected. Most of the accumulation will be on non-paved surfaces.

Clouds will continue to lower and thicken up tonight with snow overspreading the region from west to east from morning through lunchtime. Many areas will still be dry for the morning commute. Even when the snow begins, a lot will melt on the streets during the day with a higher March Sun angle and treated roads.

The steadiest snow will occur tomorrow night into Thursday morning making for a slippery commute, especially across the hill towns. The snow should taper off Thursday afternoon to a few lingering flurries.

High pressure will build back in for late in the week and into the weekend with plenty of sunshine, however temperatures will only average in the upper 30's to the low 40's and overnight lows only the chilly 20's.

Unfortunately, for those of you looking for a return to last Friday's 70 degrees weather; you will have to wait for a least two to possibly three weeks as our cold weather pattern will continue through the end of March, which may include more snow.
