Just A Little Snow

In the winter without a winter, everyone has been hyping up the snow expected on Saturday. Unfortunately, we’re not getting enough to make the snow lovers happy.

The computer models have backed off on the idea of a moderate snow event. The developing coastal low will move too far south and east of CT. The storm will also have trouble getting its act together and will not intensify fast enough.

Minor snow accumulations are possible on the order of 1”-3”. Areas in southeastern and far eastern CT could see locally higher amounts up to 4”-5”. But that would be an exception!

The timing of this storm has also changed. Although the start time is similar (late tonight/early tomorrow before sunrise), the end time looks earlier with the storm winding down by mid afternoon. You might even see the sun before it sets tomorrow night. Roads will be slippery and snow covered at times. But it’s nothing your snow tires can’t handle. And the roads should be good to go for tomorrow night plans.

As the storm pulls away, winds will howl and temps will tumble! Get ready for an arctic blast on Sunday with temps staying in the 20s and win chills in the teens and single digits. The cold is here. But snow…not so much.

Geoff Fox and Dan Amarante are working hard for you tonight and tomorrow! You can catch their forecast updates tonight at 10 & 11 and tomorrow morning from 7-9 am on FOX!
