Not a big storm but enough to remind us that winter is still here. At this point it looks like 2″-4″ of snow for most of Connecticut. The western hills could pick up higher amounts (say 4″-6″) of snow but most of us will stay near or under 4″.
There is a slight chance that some heavier banding sets up over central Connecticut but that seems unlikely right now. I do not expect the National Weather Service’s winter storm watch to verify (>7″ needed in 12 hours) . This is a somewhat unusual setup with our snow coming form what is known as a Norlun trough. I’ll post more on this tomorrow.
Snow breaks out by daybreak in western Connecticut with heavier snow along the New York broder by midday. The snow band will be quite narrow and move slowly so the heaviest snow won’t make it into Hartford until late afternoon or early evening.
