Living On The Edge!

Connecticut stays on the western periphery of the storm
A developing ocean storm will resemble a winter hurricane with gusts to 70+ mph and waves up to 40 feet.  Luckily this storm will stay well offshore, bringing only fringe effects to us here in Connecticut.

Heaviest snow stays east
Clouds will increase on Tuesday. A few flurries could sneak in during the afternoon but most of the day looks dry. More numerous snow showers will develop at night through Wednesday morning. A coating to 1” is possible for most, with higher amounts up to 2-3” in parts of eastern Connecticut.

Tonight: Clear to partly cloudy. Low: 12-20.

Tomorrow: Increasing clouds. Chance for a flurry in spots in the afternoon. High temperatures in the mid to upper 30s. More numerous snow showers develop at night.

Wednesday: An early snow shower or flurries in spots. Then clearing. Breezy. High temperatures around the 40 degree mark.
Gusts to 30-40 mph. Damaging wind possible for the Cape.

Thursday: A mix of sun and high clouds. High temperatures in the lower 40s to middle 40s.
Friday: Mostly cloudy and milder with showers likely. High temperatures in the middle and upper 50s.

Saturday: Mostly cloudy and mild with the chance for a light shower or two. High temperatures in the middle 50s.
