Here is your Tuesday Evening Connecticut Weather Forecast Update from Senior Meteorologist Fred Campagna:
It will be a close call with a storm system passing south of Long Island late Tuesday night through Wednesday. Right now, it looks like most of the steady precipitation stays offshore, but there should be some snow in CT. Our forecast is for 1-3″, with 1″ being the more likely outcome for most of the state. Some towns, particularly along the Shoreline, could pick up 2-3″ if some heavier bursts of snow move through in the morning.
Tonight: Becoming cloudy. Flurries possible after midnight. Chance of steadier light snow by dawn, especially at the Shoreline.
Wednesday: Light snow or snow showers in the morning. Snow may slow the morning commute. Mostly cloudy in the afternoon. 1-3″ of snow possible. A bit milder in the afternoon with highs in the mid to upper 30s.
Thursday: Mostly cloudy, a gusty wind, scattered snow showers and squalls. Highs in the mid to upper 20s, but feeling 10-15° colder due to the wind. Frigid Thursday night, with lows in the single digits to low teens.
Friday: Partly sunny & very cold. Highs in the 20s.
Saturday: Cloudy, chance of snow, especially in the morning. Breezy and colder late in the day. Highs in the 20s, but turning frigid at night.
Sunday: A downright frigid start to the day. Temperature below zero for most of the state and wind chills will be -15 to -25. Sunny, bitter cold in the afternoon. Highs in the teens.
Monday: A frigid start near zero. Still very cold in the afternoon. Highs in the 20s with partly sunny skies.
Tuesday: Snow or a mix developing. Highs in the 30s.
