A Winter Weather Advisory means a wintry mix of accumulating snow and ice. A Winter Storm Watch is issued 24 to 36 hours in advance of a storm that has a potential for heavier snow and ice accumulations. A Winter Storm Watch will become a Winter Storm Warning when a heavy snowstorm is about to occur (within 24 hours) or is occurring. We usually see the warning when we will see at least 4-7" of snow or 3"+ with significant icing.

Right now a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 8pm for inland portions of Fairfield, New Haven, Middlesex and New London Counties for snow accumulations of 2-4" and slippery or icy roads.
