A strengthening disturbance will track far to our south tonight into tomorrow morning, bringing with it some light snow to the region. The latest version of the forecast has been freely released below:
This southern jog in the storm track has taken us out of the moderate snow and means we are now expected only to see a coating to 2 inches of snow. Amounts generally of a coating to an inch are expected up by Interstate 84, with amounts as high as two inches to maybe even a little more in spots are expected down by the coast.
You can see on the latest HRRR here that by 6 AM we will be looking at widespread light snow across the region. It will be a very light, high ratio snow that will instantly stick to everything. This will make roads a little slippery, even though accumulations will not be all that significant. Light snow showers start now as soon as midnight or 1 AM before picking up in intensity gradually through around 7 AM, mainly at the coast. The latest NAM here shows the moderate snow at the coast continuing through around 9 AM and then dying down into around 11 AM. Light snow showers could stick around in New Haven County as late as noon or 1 PM but should move out pretty quickly, so roads will be improving quickly into the evening. Worst road conditions from this can be expected from 7 to 10 AM or so. However, roads will not be too bad from the light, airy snow.
There are no other major storm threats we are tracking, but this weekend there is a threat of at least some additional wintry weather, so please stay tuned.
