This week's return to winter normalcy brought with it a variety of conditions throughout the state. The northwest and northeast sections of the state seemingly hit the jackpot in terms of snowfall amounts ranging anywhere upwards of 5+ inches. Southern portions of the state received little to no accumulations and ended up with mainly a rain event for most of Wednesday's portion of the storm.

Here in Harwinton we managed to get up to 5 inches with potentially higher amounts north and west into the Litchfield Hills. The snow started around 11:30am as predicted and picked up in intensity throughout the afternoon ending by 5:30pm. After this a round of freezing rain continued to fall and created slippery conditions on most of the secondary roads in the hardest hit areas. Luckily by Thursday morning temperatures had risen above freezing and most of the state's major highways were cleared for rush hour. Snow continued to fall later in the day with an inch of additional accumulation at most.

Winter Weather Advisories have been listed for counties in Northern Connecticut with snow, sleet, and freezing rain expected to fall during the overnight hours into Saturday morning.
