Winter Fights Back!

  • Our forecast is pretty easy this weekend, with above freezing temps during the day, and below at night.
  • Tomorrow will be trouble free for the big game. Temps will be in the upper 30s at 6:30pm for kick off.
  • Things change on Monday and Tuesday with snow expected across the state.
  • Each forecast model has a different solution so below will be a breakdown of each.
  • The punchline is by the end of Monday, we’ll likely see 1-3″ of snow on the ground after round 1 finishes.
  • By the time round 2 ends early Wednesday, parts of the state could see near 6 inches, but it’s over the course of a long time (36 hours) so plow crews will be able to keep up!
  • Wednesday is the last thaw before cold temps return through the middle-end of next week. Highs struggle to make it to freezing towards next weekend!

Here’s the model breakdown:

  • European model shows nothing by the end of Monday, 1-2 inches west and 2-4 inches east by the end of Tuesday.
  • The GFS shows 1-2 inches by the end of Monday, only an additional dusting expected Tuesday.
  • The Canadian goes a bit high on snow with 3-6 inches Monday, and 4-7 (total for both days) by the time Wednesday morning comes.
  • The NAM hasn’t fully come out through the duration of both rounds, but is expecting 1.5-3 inches Monday, and an additional 3-5 inches for Tuesday.

See why it’s so hard to forecast snow in Connecticut? Stay tuned friends!
