Blizzard Update – Sunday Midday

Everything is on track. Radar looks extremely impressive and we’re also seeing big winds and pressure falls off the North Carolina coast. Our 12z models ticked east just a bit and 9z SREFs show western Connecticut getting hit hardest.

With a slight east trend I think the threat for a mix or rain in southeast Connecticut is much lower now. I’m expecting 12″-18″ statewide. As mentioned before someone could see 20″-24″ it’s just too early to say where.

Wind is going to be a big issue. Expect sporadic power outages as this storm starts wrapping up along with unusually high snow drifts.

  1. Thanks for the updates, Ryan. Great blog, and the best forecasting in CT. Also, very educational, as I keep having to run to my research resources as you add meteorological ticklers…. 🙂

  2. just shoveled, a little sleet hurting my face and lots of wind. definitely a blizzard, a little worried about what the sleet may do to the snowfall totals. Although that does mean less shoveling!!
