Heavy Rain, Power Outages, Some Snow?

  • We saw no areas of freezing rain this morning which I did expect to happen. The NWS went way overboard with a winter weather advisory and they eventually took it down last night.
  • Warmth is the theme the next two days, with highs 10 degrees above average today. A few sprinkles possible, not too much sunshine expected.
  • The wind picks up tonight with the next storm approaching from the west. As it tracks north, we’ll start to see rain around daybreak tomorrow.
  • Rain will be heavy at times with over an inch expected in some spots. Not enough to cause flooding issues or anything like that.
  • The wind will be very gusty tomorrow, there are high wind watches to the east of Connecticut. I think we’ll be close enough to see some scattered outages with gusts to 45 mph tomorrow.
  • A cold front moves through Sunday night and gives us a more seasonable theme next week.
  • High and dry Monday and Tuesday with an Alberta Clipper moving through early Wednesday. That means snow to our north, maybe a bit down here too. Won’t accumulate much though but we’ll watch it.
  • Forecast models (2/3rds of them) agree that we could see some sort of snow/mix event late next week. One says maybe Sunday, one says maybe Friday, and the last shows nothing. So we’ll keep an eye out as we get closer.
