4:00 PM: The clipper for tonight is likely to be slightly drier than yesterday’s forecast expected, with a widespread dusting to 1/2 inch likely, locally up to 1-2 inches in southern Connecticut. The focus of the forecast, however, is on Saturday, which after an unexpected trend last night where every single model, even those that have consistently showed a mostly wet scenario for the area, suddenly trended south to show a moderate snowstorm for the area. This is only a recent change on the models and is not final yet, although an accumulating snowstorm is now expected for the entire area, with the heaviest accumulations to the north of NYC potentially in the 3 to 5 inch range.
Stay tuned for more updates on this storm throughout the day, including updates to the 5-Day Forecast, Winter, and Weather Alerts pages which will be posted by 5:00 PM. A detailed discussion on the storm including a snow map will be posted this evening.
