Snow Forecast: CT and Surrounding Areas




blog-0691804001358305753.jpgI see this event as a widespread 2-4 incher across most of interior SNE. The tough call comes along I-95 for BOS-PVD-GON, as often is the case. I do think most areas even along the South Shore get a thump of snow/sleet at the beginning.

I'm not really all that confident on widespread 4"+ amounts, but I've outlined an area with a black dotted line that could see locally 5-6 inches.

I also expect precipitation to quickly shut off in the morning (by 7 or 8 a.m. across much of Connecticut) and taper to drizzle near and SE of I-84 with pockets of "snizzle" or flurries/freezing drizzle across the higher terrain.

Connecticut Forecast:

On the shoreline...(< 2 inches)

Although there may be a period of snow and sleet, temperatures near the ground will likely remain above freezing through most of the event. Combine this with with a changeover to plain rain and areas near the coast should see less than 2 inches of snow/sleet.

Inland...(generally 2-4 inches)

Most areas should see a period of moderate snow before a changeover to sleet. Precipitation may actually end as a period of drizzle late Wednesday morning, with pockets of freezing drizzle in the hills. Before the changeover, generally 2 to 4 inches of snow/sleet is expected.

Highest elevations...(locally 4"+)

Due to colder air in place, Litchfield County and northern Tolland County may stay near or below freezing throughout the entire event. The end result is NEAR 4 inches of snow with localized totals that could reach perhaps 5 or 6 inches.

Overall, a decent forecast. There were a few 4"+ reports, with most of them falling across lower Litchfield County and northeastern Conn. 

Along the shore, the 2" line ended up being right down to the coast for New Haven and Middlesex Counties.
