Guidance looks much lower with a dusting for the state. Some areas will likely stay dry with NO snow at all. The 1″ to 3″ band has shifted east with my forecast. Winds will still be strong tomorrow.
The earlier discussion is below:
Luck is still on our side for missing the brunt of this storm tonight and tomorrow. Here are the specifics:
* Cold and dry today
* Cloudiness increasing
* Dry for the PM commute
* Flurries developing after midnight
* On and off light snow overnight with increasing winds
* Wind gusts 20 to 40 mph tomorrow morning
* Snow shifting over to Eastern Ct. early tomorrow
* Some slippery conditions for the AM commute-not widespread at all
* Ending mid morning
* Dusting for most of the state with 0.5″ for SE Ct. and right up along the Rhode Island line.
* Minor coastal flooding with tides 1′ to 1.5 above normal. High tide in the morning 6AM-8AM along the shoreline
* Cold temperatures through the day Wednesday
* Another round of strong winds Wednesday Afternoon with 40-50mph gusts east of Ct. River
* Warmer temperatures later in the week
