Sloppy Storm!

While parts of the northwest hills have picked up a half a foot or more, the shoreline and southeastern Connecticut ended up with little or nothing. The rest of the state picked up a slushy coating to 3” of snow. 

As cold air gets pulled in on the backside of this storm, rain and sleet will change back over to snow/sleet. An additional coating to an inch or two is possible. Any leftover precipitation will end a little after midnight.  But roads will remain wet, slushy and/or slick through Thursday morning. Temperatures are expected to drop below freezing, so any untreated walkways and roadways could become icy.

The Manchester Road Race will be a bit slushy this year.  Dress for temperatures around 30 degrees with lots of clouds around.  A snow shower is possible on Thanksgiving Day (completely unrelated to Wednesday’s storm).  Thursday will also be breezy and cool with high temperatures in the mid to upper 30s.

Attention shoppers!  If you want to wait in line for Black Friday deals, dress warmly! Temperatures will start in the mid and upper 20s for the morning doorbusters.  At least we’ll see plenty of sunshine.  The afternoon will not get much better with highs in the middle 30s.

A warming trend will arrive early next week, Sunday into Monday with highs in the 40s to around 50 degrees. There are no big storms in sight for now.

Tonight:  Rain, snow, sleet changing back to snow/sleet before ending.  An additional coating to an inch or two.  Snow ending after midnight. Low: Near 30.

Tomorrow:  Early slicks spots. Mostly cloudy, breezy and chilly.  Chance for snow showers. High: middle to upper 30s.

Friday: Mostly sunny, chilly. High: middle 30s.

Saturday: Partly cloudy, remaining chilly for this time of year. High: middle 30s to around 40 degrees.

Sunday: Mix of sun and clouds, milder than recent days. High: middle 40s to around 50 degrees.

Monday: Mix of sun and clouds, mild. High: middle 40s to around 50 degrees.
