Snowfall: March 31, 2014
Rain began to change to sleet and snow during the pre-dawn hours on March 31st across northwestern Connecticut. A band of heavy precipitation formed near Route 8 and began to pivot southeast. This band dropped the heaviest snow approximately along the I-91 corridor from lower New Haven County right up into north-central Connecticut. Heavy snow fell around the end of the morning commute in New Haven and Hartford, causing numerous travel issues on the roads. The precipitation actually changed back to sleet and then drizzle in most areas as it tapered off late in the morning.
The commute that I had from Naugatuck to New Haven was one of the worst commutes I have ever dealt with. The timing and “surprise” factor of the snow right around the morning rush hour on a Monday caused massive issues on the roads. The amount of cars stuck in two inches of snow was astonishing. This probably was a result of the icy mixture of snow and sleet that went initially untreated on most roadways.
