Three Chances For Snow/Mix In The Forecast

Well, it’s official: winter has finally found its way back to Connecticut. After a freak October storm, we had quite a dry spell. Last night we added a little to the snow to the bank, 2.3" for Windsor Locks. Compared to last year, 2012 is a walk in the park!

Snow this season: 5.0"
This Date last year: 33.2"
Below normal: -6.6"

Windsor Locks
Snow this season: 14.6"
This Date last year: 45.4"
Below average: -1.1"

We have three additional chances for snow/mix in the 7 day forecast. On Thursday night a clipper type storm will being a quick coating to an inch or two of snow. Then watch for a messy snow/mix to develop during the day on Saturday. Another few inches are possible. Finally, we are watching another smaller storm for Monday. It's too far in the future to write in stone yet. But we'll keep an eye on it. Every week in January 2011 I said the word "bombogenesis". This "biggies" in sight.
