Monday Night Weather: Temps To Plunge Before Snow Arrives Tuesday

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated. Please look at the time stamp on the story to see when it was last updated.

I’m not expecting any weather related travel issues for the morning commute on Tuesday.  The morning will turn out dry, breezy and cool.   Light snow will begin to move in during the afternoon with some slippery spots by the evening commute. The heaviest snow arrives Tuesday night with winds gusting up to 30 miles an hour. Most of the state can expect 4”-8” of snow. Some higher amounts are possible in far southern/southeastern Connecticut. Snow ends early Wednesday followed by some clearing. School delays are likely. Some schools may choose to close for the day.

Thursday and Friday will be cold but dry with the chance for snow showers for the start of the weekend.  Looking at temperatures in the long range, winter cold reigns supreme.
