Saturday Morning Weather: More Snow Today!

This is an archived article and the information in the article may be outdated.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.

While we try to catch our breath from the last storm, another one is already gearing up today.   Once again, this storm will rapidly drop in pressure undergoing bombogenesis. It’s not often I get to use that word twice in one month (let alone a couple of days). Connecticut is going to be on the western periphery of this one. But the latest model trend has been to bring the storm closer to Connecticut, which means more accumulation.  If that trend continues, we may need to bump up accumulations even more.

This storm is tough to estimate, but here are the totals we are expecting.

This is a very tough forecast with extreme disagreement among the various computer models we look at.  That’s typical three days in advance, but 24 hours in advance and I start to get a little worried. But I digress. Here’s my best stab at a forecast. Light snow will develop, mainly in the afternoon.  Snow will become a bit heavier at night before ending around midnight. About 2″-5″ of accumulation is possible with higher amounts up to 8″ or more in southeastern Connecticut.

Extended Forecast

Today: Light snow developing, mainly in the afternoon. Snow picking up in intensity at night. High temperatures in the lower to middle 30s. Snow ends around midnight.
