Bridgeport's 2nd Snowiest Season

This is officially the second snowiest season on record for Bridgeport with 64.3” of snow! The ’95-’96 season holds the number one spot at 75.7”. Not many are in a rush to break that record. Spring arrives at 7:02 AM on Wednesday but winter cold isn’t going anywhere.  In fact, there is no big warm up on the horizon. 

Tonight: A leftover snow shower is possible overnight.  As temps drop below freezing, any wet roads could refreeze causing icy spots. Low: 20s

Wednesday: Partly cloudy, breezy and chilly!  Winds will howl out of the northwest with gusts up to 35 mph. A brief snow shower or flurry could pop up in the afternoon. High: 39-42

Thursday: Mostly cloudy. High: Upper 30s. A coastal storm will come close…but this one looks like a miss with the chance for a snow shower or some flurries.

Friday: Mix sun & clouds. High: near 40

Saturday & Sunday: Partly to mostly sunny. Highs: Low to mid 40s

Monday & Tuesday: Watching another potential coastal storm. Right now it appears the storm could miss.  But with a -NAO we need to keep an eye on this one!
