Minor tweaks to the forecast…Just splitting hairs here, but very similar numbers. Only reason I’m making a change is because the shoreline won’t get that push of cold air as fast as I need it to get there for more snow. Tune in at 5 for the minor changes.
Now temperatures are warm indeed, above normal, but the good news is that winds are getting gusty and will start to mic out, though they’re not shifting fast enough…With that said the cold air will absolutely get to the the extreme western portion of the state and central CT by tonight. Leaving in the threat of a changeover for parts of Litchfield County overnight. I’ll have a breakdown of each counties travel trouble and how the storm will affect each one during my forecasts.
Temperatures were above normal for today and below normal by tomorrow. I have kept in that extra wave pushing in bringing us some light precip/mix Thursday afternoon.
