FIRST BIG ONE OF THE SEASON


Snow will continue heavy at times tonight.  A Winter Storm Warning remains in effect until early Thursday morning. Visibility will be reduced to a ¼ mile at times  and driving conditions look terrible.  Winds will be picking up as well out of the northeast to north gusting 20 to 30 mph.  It’s looking like steady snowfall will come to an end before daybreak Thursday.  Total snow accumulations look to be on the order of 8 to 14 inches for most towns.  A few snow showers are possible on Thursday but travel conditions are expected to improve.  Friday will showcase some developing sun but temperatures will remain cool. In fact, early morning lows on Saturday should be in the single digits and low teens for most of the region, making for the coldest morning this season so far.  Temperatures will modify into the 40s on Sunday but a shower is possible late in the weekend as well.
