March 1-2 Snowfall Forecast

Periods of light snow and flurries will continue through early Sunday afternoon on March 1st. A more organized area of steady moderate to occasionally heavy snow should develop across Connecticut between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m.

The heaviest period of snow should be between 6 p.m. and 9 p.m., before quickly tapering off around or shortly after midnight. All snow is expected with this storm, but temperatures in far southeastern Connecticut may briefly rise to around 33 degrees with snow falling.

A general 4 to 6 inch snowfall is forecast for Connecticut, although a narrow band near or just north of I-95, particularly in southeastern Connecticut, may end up with right around 6 or as much as 7 inches of snow. This includes areas such as North Branford, Colchester and Norwich. The greatest probability for a few 7 inch snowfall reports is across northern New London County, where a slightly longer period of heavier snow may be observed.
