Winter Storm Watches have been issued by the National Weather Service for most of the state away from the coast. The latest computer models continue to forecast a long duration snowstorm for Connecticut and most of New England. The following text forecast is based on a blend of the North American Model (NAM) and the Global Forecast System (GFS) model:
This Afternoon…An arctic cold front is currently stretched across Northern New England as weak low pressure systems move along the front. Snow is falling at this time. The snow should taper down to periods of light snow for the rest of the afternoon with an inch or two of accumulation. High temperatures are forecast to be in the upper 20’s with a light south wind at 5 – 10 MPH.
