It’s a close call. Saturday Night is going to be tricky. If the temperature is at 33 it is expected to be rain, but if along the shoreline one town just dips below 33 and hits 32, they could end up with some freezing rain. The winds could also be fairly strong, so keep that in mind. It looks like none to 3″ along the shoreline. 2 to 4″ from Danbury to Norwich. Or from Bristol to Hamden. I wouldn’t be surprised if there were some 5″ totals in the 2-4″ range or even some 1″ totals. 3-5″ is expected in Hartford with maybe an isolated 6″ total near Enfield. This is on the conservative side comparing it to other computer models. But since this storm will draw in warm air from the southeast, it is expected to be mostly rain. Some towns might pick up 0.1 of ice, so you might want to cancel your Sunday morning plans.
