First snow of the season possible late week

Just saying the words “first snow” triggers all kinds of emotions. For some it’s a beautiful time of year, signifying the start of ski season, the holidays, or a chance to make some extra cash plowing. Others are left cringing, saying “too soon” and making jokes about shopping for bread, milk and eggs.

Snow gets awfully close to Connecticut Thursday night into Friday morning! While most of the state will just get rain, we can’t rule out the “first flakes” in the northwest hills as the storm is moving away. As of tonight, we feel confident that accumulation is UNLIKELY.

Most rain/mix should be done or wrapping up by the morning commute on Friday.

Accumulation is more likely to our north but there could be a few snowflakes in northern CT as the storm is pulling away.

CONTEXT: It’s not all that unusual for us to get a little snow this time of year. While it is before the average date of the first measurable snowfall, that date is somewhere in the middle of the road. We are no where close to the record earliest dates. Plus, we’re not expecting anything significant.
