The amount of snow we receive from Wednesday's storm will depend on how effectively (or ineffectively) the dry air associated with a high pressure center over Ontario Province that has established itself across New England is at holding off the precipitation and exactly where the mid-level low pressure area picks up the developing surface low offshore.  This forecast is subject to change as more data become...

Above: NAM forecast for 8 PM Wednesday (Click to enlarge).

After enjoying some mild weather in February (remember the high of 77 degrees at BDL and 78 at BDR on the 21st?), the Winter weather pattern that established itself earlier this month shows no sign of abating.  The most recent computer guidance, including the brand new morning runs suggest that accumulating snow is likely again Wednesday into Wednesd...

Our most recent nor'easter was a good illustration of some things we should remember when the next one rolls around.

Yesterday's storm occurred 130 years and one day after the Blizzard of 1888 was hammering New England and eastern New York.  The Blizzard of 1888 was one of the worst storms in recorded history and the blizzard all other New England blizzards are compared to.  It reportedly produced 50" of sno...

The model trend of bringing the storm track closer to our area has continued today, making higher snow amounts more likely.  As a result, I have pulled the forecast snow zones about 50 miles further west.  These numbers may not be final, and could be adjusted up or down as more information becomes available about the track of the storm.

Yet another nor'easter.  Looks like this one tracks far enough to the south & east to keep the heaviest snow east of Connecticut, but we'll still have to shovel & plow.

  1. Snow starts in CT toward or after midnight.

  2. Snow will impact the morning commute Tuesday.  

  3. Snow lightens up during Tuesday afternoon.  

  4. Wind picks up from the northeast to 15-20 mph, with gusts to 30 mph Tues...
