Big Problems Shaping Up For The Weekend

January 17, 2019

  • Areas of light snow develop toward and after midnight tonight.  Snow will accumulate between a coating and an inch or two just in time for the Friday morning commute.

  • Snow develops Saturday night (anytime after 6 PM).  Snow will become moderate to heavy late Saturday night before changing to sleet & freezing rain.  Across interior Connecticut 6"-12" of snow accumulates followed by a period of significant icing in some areas due to freezing rain Sunday.  Snow amounts & icing may be less toward the coast, where a change to plain rain could occur Sunday.  Precipitation will tend to switch back to light snow in all areas during Sunday afternoon & evening.  Locations north & west of Chicopee Falls, Mass. remain mostly snow, with 20" of snow possible.

  • Frigid, Arctic air & strong, gusty wind Sunday night & Monday will drop temps to near 0 by early Monday morning and wind chills of -20.  High temps across part of the interior Monday could have trouble reaching 10 degrees!

  • The potential exists for power outages in areas where significant icing occurs Sunday once the gusty wind develops.  This means some people might have no power/heat for several hours Sunday night/Monday as temperatures are plunging toward 0.
