State Preparing With 12-22 Inches Of Snow Looming Tuesday; Blizzard Warning Issued – Hartford Courant

Connecticut officials are preparing for a nor’easter Tuesday that could bring 12 to 22 inches of snow, with some areas seeing upwards of 2 feet, during the day Tuesday. The threat of strong winds has led the National Weather Service to issue a blizzard warning for much of the southern portion of the state.

Fox 61 Meteorologist Joe Furey said Tuesday’s storm is “one that’s going to pound down snow on us during the day tomorrow.”

Snow is expected to start falling between 3 and 5 a.m. Tuesday, causing white-out conditions and making travel “extremely difficult,” Furey said in a morning forecast. In some areas winds will be gusting at 50 miles an hour, increasing the threat for power outages.

“This is going to be a quite a show,” Furey said. He added that snow could fall at 2 to 3 inches an hour at some points during the day Tuesday.

The weather service had issued a blizzard warning from Tuesday morning until Wednesday morning for much of Southern Connecticut given the threat of strong wind. The remainder of the state was under a winter storm warning for the same period.
