    A slippery start to Tuesday after nor’easter brings ice & snow to parts of the state

    It’s a slippery morning on most surfaces across the state. Watch that first step out the door as you head out, and keep in mind many roads are slushy.

Check the list here. During the day, showers will linger through the day with highs around 40. There may be a few areas of sleet mixed […]

    Powerful nor’easter to bring high winds and heavy rain Monday

    A strong nor’easter arrives this afternoon/evening, bringing heavy rain and some snow for the NW hills Monday night.

Due to the impacts in the southeastern US, there have been some delays at Bradley Airport this morning. Keep that in mind if you’re flying out today. A high wind warning is in effect for the shoreline, […]

    Sunny and seasonable start to the week

    Fireball lights up New England sky

    PORTSMOUTH, N.H.  — A fireball was seen across New England early Tuesday morning. And of course it was captured on video. All it takes is a rock the size of a grain of sand to cause what we call a shooting star. The one that many people saw last night may have been a little bigger than that. People from Connecticut all the way into Maine saw this fireball light up the sky just before 1 a.m. And this fireball […]

    Thursday forecast: Another day of cloudy and cool weather

    Today and Friday will remain cloudy, cool and damp with areas of fog and scattered showers. This weather pattern is all thanks to a cut-off low pressure system over northeast. As its name suggests, the storm is “cut off” from the jetstream so it’s “stuck,” lacking the wind needed to move this storm away. This weekend looks a bit better. While showers are still possible, we’ll at least start to see more sun and warmer temps! So when will it […]

The first storm will swing a band of rain and showers Monday night into Tuesday with as much as a half-inch or more […]

    Starting off spring with some winter weather

    It’s become more and more likely that we’ll have accumulating snow across Connecticut for Sunday into Monday. Colder air moving in this weekend is setting the stage for our winter weather, just in time for the official start of spring on Sunday. Here’s the latest thinking as of Friday mid-day: TIMING: Snow begins, light at first, during the mid-day and afternoon hours on Sunday. If you have morning plans, you should be okay on the roads, with just mostly cloudy […]

    Warming up this week to near-record temperatures

    Heading into the week with all signs pointing to spring! A big warm-up is in the cards beginning Monday, as colder Canadian air retreats, allowing warmer air to settle in. It’s a clash of air masses Monday, so we’ll see a few clouds mixing with the sun, and a southerly breeze. Temperatures get to the low 50s Monday. That’s nothing compared to most of the week, when we’ll likely see 60 on Tuesday, and push for 70 Wednesday and Thursday. […]
