10PM: Heavy Snow West, Dry East

While heavy snow continues in western CT, precipitation has ended further east.


10 p.m.
That incredible band of heavy snow is still hitting portions of western Connecticut hard. However, dry air is working in, which has ended most of the snow across eastern sections of the state.


Most of Connecticut will finish with 4 to 8 inches, with some 10 to 12 inch amounts. Those communities across interior New Haven and Fairfield counties that already have 8 to 11 inches will finish with the highest totals. 


Into the evening:
Periods of moderate to heavy snow will continue, but drier air is working in, which will lead to decreasing snowfall rates, especially by midnight. Overnight, just a few scattered flurries and snow showers can be expected.

Additional Snowfall
An additional 1 to 2 inches of snow is possible across parts of western Connecticut.
Most areas already have anywhere from 4 to 8 inches of snow on the ground. There are locally higher amounts across inland Fairfield and New Haven counties and some portions of eastern Connecticut have seen a little less than 4 inches.
