A Monday Mess to Start Your Week!

Thoughts on the snow for Monday and school cancellations:

Begins as snow for all of Connecticut 6-8 AM. Quickly changes over to a wintry mix for the shoreline then eventually just plain rain by noon. Not expecting much for accumulation, around a half inch of wet snow/ice before the switch over to rain then it quickly gets washed away. Inland is a different story, you hold on to the snow a bit longer, by noon however you will begin to see a switch over to a wintry mix. The one exception will be the higher elevations in NW CT, it will remain snow for the entire duration of this event. This is another event of the cold and warm air battling it out over our fine State! It’s all out of here around dinnertime Monday evening. As far as accumulations are concerned:

Shoreline: Under a ½ inch of wet snow/sleet/ice (Quickly washed away by rain)

Inland: Around an inch of snow, higher elevations could see 2 inches, lower elevations will see less than an inch, also up to a ½ inch of ice

NW CT Hills: 2-4 inches of snow!

As far as my thoughts on schools goes. Obviously I don’t make the calls but my best educated guess would be. Most schools along the shoreline have a 90-minute delay. And schools that are inland CT, it will be a mixed. I think schools south of 84 have a 90-minute delay; schools north of 84 go with a cancellation.
