Wednesday "Pick of the Week", Friday Nor'easter?

Wednesday will be the pick of the week! Persistent northwesterly winds will finally relax. Without the breeze, the air will feel really comfortable with temperatures topping out near 50 degrees. After a sunny start to the day, some high clouds will increase in the afternoon as a storm slides south of Connecticut. Wednesday night and Thursday will be mostly cloudy with a few rain/snow showers possible at times. But a bigger storm could bring rain and/or accumulating wet snow Thursday night into Friday.

One camp of computer models brings the storm out to sea. Other group calls for a major nor’easter with gusty winds and moderate to heavy snow accumulations. If the rain/snow line bisects CT we could be talking about a storm with anywhere from 2”-12” of snow. I’ll keep you posted!

My forecast from the News at 10 Tuesday night:

I had a feeling that it was not quite time to put away the snowblower...I'll keep it ready for any heavy wet snow on Friday - I'll be checking your updates for sure...
