February 2nd Snow/Ice Forecast

There have been no major changes to the previous forecast.

Snow will become steadier through the pre-dawn hours with a period of heavy snow from about 4 to 7 a.m. After that, sleet will begin to mix with the snow, mainly along and southeast of I-84. The northwest hills should stay all or mostly snow. Some freezing rain is also possible across southern Connecticut and extending up into central parts of the state. Parts of southeastern New London County may change to plain rain for a time.

The most difficult travel should be between 5 a.m. and 10 a.m.

The precipitation will quickly taper off to a light mixture between 10 a.m. and noon, with precipitation trending back toward some snow showers in the afternoon. Everything moves out during the evening hours.

Generally 4 to 7 inches of snow and ice can be expected for southern Connecticut with 7 to 10 inches across northern portions of the state. The area with the greatest icing threat is between I-95 and Route 15/Parkways. Here, there could be 1 to 3 hours of steady freezing rain with at least some patchy lingering freezing drizzle as well.
