Recap On Yesterday's Storm

March 15, 2017

 

 

 

Yesterday's storm came and went on the same date as day 3 of the blizzard of 1888.  That storm produced 5 times as much snow (50.0") in Middletown as this one did.  Yesterday's storm tracked close enough to the coast so as to bring  the rain & sleet/snow line inland earlier than forecast the day before the storm.  This effectively pulled the forecast snowbands about 50-60 miles further to the northwest.  Evidence that this was occurring showed up when the snow first changed to sleet as far north as lower Fairfield County by 8 AM.  Also, few places (if any) in CT saw actual blizzard conditions (3+ hours with visibilty <1/4 mile & 35+ mph wind). The map above and list below show reported snowfall amounts from the storm.  They were gathered from a variety of sources.  If you see an error or would like to report a snow amount, please contact me or post it on my facebook page.
