FOX 61 Forecast: Snow Makes A Mess Of Monday Morning Commute

Another snowy day to deal with for the start of the workweek. This comes courtesy of a monster offshore storm.

Like Friday’s snow, the heavier amounts of snow will fall on the eastern side of the state, with lesser amounts in northwest Connecticut. Three to six inches on average will fall, with more possible for the east.

A Winter Storm Warning has been issued for Middlesex, Windham and New London counties, while a Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for Fairfield, Hartford, New Haven, and Tolland counties.

This is the start of a snowy week for us, with a few more opportunities for snow showers that may bring light accumulations Tuesday and on Thursday. Behind it, a big drop in temperatures to close the weekend.

Extended Forecast:

Monday: Cloudy with periods of light to moderate snow. Higher snow amounts in eastern Connecticut. Windy as well, with snow reducing visibility at times. High: Near 30.

Tuesday: Cloudy with periods of light snow and snow showers. High: 30.

Wednesday: Mostly cloudy with the chance for snow showers. High: Low 30s.

Thursday: Partly cloudy and brisk with the chance for snow showers. High: 25-30.

Friday: Mostly sunny, quite cold. High: 20-27.
