FOX 61 Forecast: Snow Coming Wednesday, Followed By Arctic Front

We’re not out of the woods in this active snowy weather pattern. Flakes will fly Wednesday, Thursday and perhaps even Saturday morning followed by the coldest air of the season to date.

On Wednesday snow showers will scattered be across the state. Some could pack a punch with a brief burst of moderate to heavy snow, coating the roadways. This will be similar to a summer day when thunderstorms hit one town hard and another nearby is totally spared. For this reason, some towns may see little or nothing. While other towns could pick up an inch or two.

After that, an arctic front Thursday will trigger another round of snow showers. Once again, activity will be hit or miss and a light accumulation is possible on the order of a coating to an inch.

The biggest snow question mark is hovering over the late Friday night into Saturday morning time period. There are some signals for accumulating snow. Most of our computer models show little impact through this time-frame. But it’s still worth watching, especially heading into the big Valentine’s Day weekend.

Also, this weekend will be bitterly cold with highs in the teens and low temperatures in single digits to below-zero! A breeze at times this weekend could send wind chills into the “dangerous” category.

Wednesday: A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the Connecticut shoreline for the potential of accumulating snow. Scattered snow showers. Some snow could be locally heavy. Otherwise, cloudy. Most of the day will end up dry. High: Mid-upper 30s.

Thursday: Windy and colder with snow showers. High: Upper 20s-Near 30.

Friday: Partly cloudy, breezy and cold. High: mid-upper 20s.

Saturday: Morning snow possible, otherwise windy and bitterly cold. High: Mid-upper 10s.

Sunday: Still frigid cold. Morning lows below zero, afternoon highs in the teens.
