The Worst Is Over, But We're Not Done Yet

2”-5” have already accumulated around and north of the I-84 corridor with a slushy coating to an inch or two in southern Connecticut. Most of the accumulating snow is over. A lull in the action is occurring right now with a light wintry mix of sleet and rain.

But another round of heavier rain/sleet/snow will move back in around or after midnight. Since milder air has already moved into the upper levels of the atmosphere, most additional precipitation will be sleet, rain or freezing rain. But if precipitation comes down heavy enough we may end up switching back to snow for a little while. An additional coating to an inch or two is possible overnight.

As our first storm fades, another coastal low will intensify tomorrow. This will bring northern New England another batch of heavy snow. But we’ll be on the southern fringe of precipitation with periods of snow, sleet and rain. Another coating of snow is possible, with an additional 1”-2” in northern Connecticut. This could cause more travel issues for the morning and evening commutes tomorrow. I wouldn't count on school delays or early dismissals this time around.

Here are some snowfall totals:
