  • Our temperatures will drop through the day today
  • Snow will move into the state 5 AM – 7 AM and continue through the day today
  • Periods of heavy snow, but also periods of flurries too
  • Both commutes will likely be slick
  • As far as snowfall totals are concerned, a general 3-6 inches of snow. Lower amounts the further west you go and higher amounts the further east you go
  • If you live in Danbury, you may only see an inch or so, but say you live in the NE hills, you may see 6 or 7 inches. If you live in the New Haven area you will likely see around 3 inches
  • The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for New Haven, Hartford, Middlesex, Tolland, Windham and New London Counties
  • Winter Weather Advisory issued for Litchfield and Fairfield
  • We will see light snow showers and flurries through the night too
  • Another concern with this system is the wind. Wind gusts close to 45 mph at times from the NE are certainly possible
  • This means scattered power outages are likely too, especially with the heavy wet snow again
  • With these strong winds and a new moon cycle, tides will also run higher. Roughly 2 to 3 feet higher especially in western CT
  • A Coastal Flood Advisory has been issued for Fairfield and New Haven Counties
  • We are also watching the potential for more snow Tuesday into Wednesday as a clipper will pass by
  • A big shot of cold arctic air is also expected towards the end of the work week
