6PM: Heavy Snow to Continue

Heavy snow will create near-blizzard conditions into the evening hours.


6 p.m.
Moderate to heavy snow has been falling across the vast majority of the state. With temperatures now at or below freezing in most places, except coastal New London County, travel is becoming extremely difficult. About 4 inches was reported outside the News 8 Newsroom.

Into the evening:
Radar indicates that this area of snow is still centered right over Connecticut. The latest model data is in agreement and shows the heaviest snow continuing through about 9 p.m. Sometime between 9 p.m. and midnight the band is expected to advance eastward and weaken. This will likely mean that snow really begins to taper off after midnight.

Total snowfall amounts:
Most areas already have anywhere from 2 to 6 inches of snow on the ground. There may be locally higher totals and some coastal areas across southeastern Connecticut have lower amounts.


Most areas can expect an additional 2 to 5 inches of snow. That will push storm totals generally into the 5 to 10 inch range, although portions of eastern Connecticut and the immediate shoreline may see somewhat lower amounts.


Stay tuned:
As this storm has shown, conditions are continued to exceed expectations. There may be another trick or two up its sleeve before all is said and done. The shield of snow extends from southeastern New York, right down into New Jersey, putting Connecticut smack dab in the thick of it.
