MAJOR BLIZZARD HEADED TO CONNECTICUT
According to the most recent updates from the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection (DESPP), as well as the latest weather updates, the State of Connecticut will be experiencing a very significant snowstorm later today thru early Wednesday morning. Here (link to post) is the latest weather update from the Department of Emergency Services and Public Protection:
Today- Snow will remain light and intermittent for several hours through mid to late afternoon throughout the state. The afternoon commute will not be greatly affected, with a covering of 1-2 inches of dry powdery snow on most roads.
Tonight- The snow will begin to intensify, with snowfall becoming heavy (2-4 inches per hour) around midnight with strong winds gusting to 40 MPH inland and 60 MPH near the coast. We are anticipating the wind chill around 0°, and major blowing and drifting of snow, which will have a major impact on all travel. Governor Dan Malloy’s Office has issued a travel ban beginning at 9pm tonight.
Tomorrow- Blizzard conditions will continue through the morning. The intensity of the snowfall will lessen around noon, but strong winds and snowfall will last into the early evening. Drifting snow will still be an issue, and will have a major impact on all travel during the day.
Tuesday Night- Snow is expected to end around midnight, with total accumulations ranging from 22 inches to 32 inches.
We expect this to be a major weather event. Please take caution and follow weather news closely on TV or social media. Follow the Governor's Office on Facebook or Twitter or sign up for text and email alerts from the CT Alert Emergency Notification System.Share
