Unexpected Turn Of Events Leaves Town Buried In Snow

Our little surprise Saturday: Upwards of 10 inches of snow fell in Norfolk as a band of heavy snow fell across far northern Litchfield County, where other towns in that area received 4 to 8 inches of snow.

Forecasting Connecticut winters can be very challenging to say the least.  One end of Connecticut can receive upwards of a foot of snow, while other areas receive rain and no snow.  Saturday was no different.   In fact, there were just some rain and snow showers across the Hartford Area and southern Connecticut.  Two systems, one from the south and one from the west, moved into Connecticut but never developed into a classic nor’easter.  Instead, the cold front stalled with a band of heavy snow that did not move for several hours.  The system from the south moved farther east and grazed eastern Connecticut with some rain and a coating of wet snow.
