Check out this 24 time lapse video from my webcam during yesterday’s storm!
Wednesday November 7th, 2012 will go down as a major early season snow event in Connecticut. Weather forecasters spent days tracking the development of this early season Nor’easter. With some people still without power due to super storm Sandy, many forecasters (including myself) looked to the computer model that predicted that hurricane with such accuracy; the European. The Euro tracked the storm close to the shore bringing heavy rain and wind to the coastline of New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, and then eventually Massachusetts. However, that scenario never played out. The storm tracked further to the east and the cold air won the battle and all the moisture fell in the form of snow.
There were many records smashed yesterday dating back to 1953! Bridgeport, Hartford, and Providence set records for the highest snowfall ever recorded on November 7th in their history! Here’s a link to an article from Ralph that goes over a lot of those records. Also here are some storm totals for New Haven County:
