WINTER STORM WARNINGS ARE IN EFFECT FOR LITCHFIELD, TOLLAND AND
WINDHAM COUNTIES…MAJOR WINTER STORM ENTERING THE STATE AT THIS
TIME…RAIN IS CHANGING TO WET SNOW IN THE WESTERN HILLS AT THIS TIME…

At 7:45 PM radar showed moderate rain falling across most of the state with wet snow
mixed with rain falling in the western hills above 1,000 feet. Eversource is currently
reporting 285 customers without power in western CT. Temperatures currently range from
the low to mid 30’s in the NW hills up to the low 40’s along the coast. Northeast winds are
gusting to 20 mph at times along the coast. Here’s the latest forecast:

This Evening and Overnight: Mixed precipitation is expected to change over to wet snow
in the western hills above 1,000 feet by 9:00 PM. The rain/snow line is then forecast to
move slowly southeast overnight. Snowfall rates overnight could reach 1 – 2 inches per
hour causing a major impact on driving especially above 1,000 feet. Northeast winds
gusting to 40 – 45 MPH at times combined with the wet snow sticking to trees are likely to
cause a moderate number of power outages from broken limbs and some uprooted trees in
western CT.

Tuesday: A morning lull is possible as a dry slot moves across parts of the state between
7:00 -11:00 AM. The rain/snow line may actually move north for a few hours. Moderate to
heavy wet snow is expected to return and overspread the entire state during the midday.
The wet snow combined with strong north winds will likely cause significant additional
power outages during the afternoon. Major impacts are expected on afternoon driving
conditions and power outages with snowfall rates of 1 – 2 inches per hour at times.
Tuesday Night: The heavy wet snow is forecast to taper down to bands of light snow that
may continue overnight. Strong northwest winds will continue to cause additional power
outages.

Wednesday Morning: Any lingering bands of light snow should end around daybreak. A
minor to moderate impact is expected for the morning rush hour with slush and some black
ice on some roads.

DESPP / DEMHS will continue to closely monitor this approaching storm. The next update
will be sent out at 6:00 AM Tuesday morning or sooner if the changeover to snow occurs
significantly more quickly than expected.
