Flakes are in the air!

A Blizzard Warning is in effect until midday Saturday for the entire state. This means travel will be treacherous.

A Blizzard Warning is:

Issued for winter storms with sustained or frequent winds of 35 mph or higher with considerable falling and/or blowing snow that frequently reduces visibility to 1/4 of a mile or less. These conditions are expected to prevail for a minimum of 3 hours. —NWS

National Weather Service Warnings as of 2:30pm Friday. Orange = Blizzard Warning, Pink = Winter Storm Warning, Purple = Storm Warning (over water)

The storm is going to be taking a track slightly east of earlier estimates. However, the forecast of at least a foot for most of the state still stands. Less snow will fall in western Connecticut, while the most snow will be found in eastern portions of the state.

Here is the latest snowfall forecast:

Expected snowfall by noon Saturday.


Notice that western portions of Litchfield county and most of Fairfield county will fall short of a foot. At the same time, heavier snow totals now extend down to the shoreline in southeastern Connecticut. With a storm tracking further to the east, less mixing will occur in these areas.

Radar forecast for 7pm this evening. Blue is snow, rain is green. Darker blue is heavy snow!
WSI RPM model radar forecast for 7pm this evening. Blue is snow, green is rain. Darker blue is heavy snow!

The jackpot snow total will likely be near or above 30″, but not in Connecticut. Rhode Island stands the best chance of taking the prize this time around.

Stay tuned for updates during the storm!
