Weekend Snowfall Forecast
Saturday night through Sunday morning, a few bursts of heavier snow are expected. A general 4 to 8 inch snowfall is projected across Connecticut. Totals should tend to be closer to 4 inches in western Connecticut and closer to 8 inches in the northeastern part of the state.
Along with the snow, increasing winds on Sunday will cause blowing and drifting, even once the snow tapers off later Sunday morning. Temperatures on Sunday will hold steady in the teens initially, but then tumble into the single digits during the afternoon. This will cause wind chill values to drop below zero degrees.
Two bands of locally heavier snowfall are wildcards in this forecast. The thinking is that one of these bands could impact Long Island, with a more prominent band of heavy snow across eastern Massachusetts, to the immediate northwest side of the surface low early Sunday. Due to uncertainty with the positioning and intensity of these bands, confidence in “higher-end” totals is relatively low. The southern band would be more of an inverted trough-type feature. Stay tuned for more information.
