Snow totals and wind gusts from Tuesday’s Nor’easter

(WTNH) — A large and powerful Nor’easter brought nearly two feet of snow to part of Connecticut. There was less snow at the Shoreline, but the strongest wind gusts reached nearly 60 mph in Southeastern Connecticut. Most areas north of I-84 received at least 12 inches of snow. Cleanup has been challenging across the state because of the sleet/rain that fell into the 4-10″ of snow at the Shoreline Tuesday afternoon. A quick temperature drop caused it all to freeze over Tuesday night. Below are snow totals and wind gusts aggregated by National Weather Service offices in the Northeast.
