Snow To Disrupt Morning Travel

A Clipper will be swinging into the region tomorrow morning, dropping a burst of snow between 7 AM and 11 AM.  For those looking for school impact forecasts, they have been released to Premium subscribers.  You can subscribe here or purchase just the individual forecast with the school impact analysis here.  The overall forecast for this event has been posted freely below:

Our weather models still are not coming into strong agreement on the storm tomorrow, keeping confidence very low in both the actual forecast and the expected impacts from it.  The RAP weather model has been trending wetter each run, previously showing no accumulating snow and now showing up to an inch or even more in eastern portions of the region through New Haven County.  The HRRR short-range model shows only light snow around half an inch, but other models, such as the NAM weather model, show up to an inch and a half or even two inches.  Snow will start between 6-8AM and will out of the region by 11AM at the latest.  The worts driving conditions will be between 7 or 8 AM and 10 AM.  Accumulations will only be around one inch across the area, with some regions getting as little as half an inch and others approaching an inch and a half or so.  Definitely take it slow, as snow could be fairly intense for a period of time in there.  The real burst of snow will come between 8 AM and 10 AM, though, as models increasingly indicate that snow will only last for around 2 or maybe 3 hours.  It is a quick burst of moderate snow falling just during the morning rush hour; most other times and this would not make much of a story at all.  Premium subscribers will receive one more update around 11 PM tonight, and free updates on future storm threats next Monday/Tuesday and next Wednesday/Thursday will be available through the coming days, so stay tuned!
