CT Weather: Snow accumulation expected Sunday and Monday

CONNECTICUT — Chances are rising that Connecticut will see another round of wintry weather this weekend.

“Sunday, with the storm system moving in… initially, we’re expecting rain,” said Mark Dixon, chief meteorologist for WFSB-TV 3 with Scott Haney. “How the area of ​​the low-pressure tracks relative to the CT scan will determine the type of precipitation. Based on current trends, we expect a shift to a pre-snow mix Sunday evening/night before ending early Monday. For this reason, we have issued the first alert from Sunday night until early morning, when there may be an impact on travel across the state. “There is a lot of uncertainty, so as new data emerges, we will of course provide updates on the timing and impacts.”

The National Weather Service said the entire state has a chance of seeing three inches or more of snow Sunday night into Monday, but the highest odds are currently in Litchfield, Hartford, Tolland and Windham counties along with inland portions of Fairfield and New Haven counties..

The Met Office said: “We are heading into a calm period early next week with a chance of snow accumulation, and then another warmth seems likely.” “How much snow will it be? It’s too early to say exactly how much snow will fall Sunday night into Monday, but here are the odds of seeing more than 3 inches of snow. For many, it’s a 50/50 shot…The uncertainty is due to differences in Storm path. A path closer to New England would move higher accumulations northward, while a path farther offshore would favor Connecticut, Rhode Island, and southeastern Massachusetts. Stay tuned for updates!

More rain now

This morning’s rain should end by midday Thursday, but fog will persist, WFSB 3 meteorologists said.

“We’ll get a midday break from the rain. Despite abundant cloud cover, temperatures will peak in the upper 40s and lower 50s,” Dixon and Haney wrote. “Then more rain moves in late today. Rain continues this evening into the early morning hours tomorrow. After that, we end the week cloudy with highs in the 40s.”

“Between now and the end of the week, we could get about 1 inch of rain. That’s not what we need given the amount of rain we’ve had in recent weeks and months, but it will happen over a few days so flooding won’t be a problem,” Dixon and Haney wrote. (Read/watch more on WFSB TV 3).
