Video: Snowstorm Update for Connecticut

with No Comments

The uncertainty remains high in the snowfall forecast, but the wind and coastal flood threats are high confidence.

The snow begins around daybreak in southwestern Connecticut, but waits until afternoon for most of the state. It’s heaviest tomorrow evening and ends by daybreak Sunday.

Up to 3 inches are expected in northern Connecticut, though no snow is still possible along the Massachusetts border. This is a potential we are watching closely.

3 to 6 inches are expected in central Connecticut, with the lower end of that range occurring in the Connecticut River Valley and the farther north one heads.

More than 6 inches are expected along the shoreline. If things come together just right, Stamford could see a foot.

Wind gusts will be over 50 mph along the I-95 corridor, and over 30 mph inland. Scattered power outages are possible along the shoreline tomorrow afternoon and evening.

Coastal flooding is a concern for shoreline areas, particularly in western Long Island Sound where the water will bottle up due to a stiff northeast wind. Surge of 3 feet is expected late tomorrow evening during high tide.

Stay tuned to social media for updates throughout the storm!
