Did you see some snow yesterday?  Well that snow had to travel quite a distance to get to Connecticut, but it made it all the way from the great lakes thanks to some high winds aloft and cold temperatures.  If you were wondering how snow can get all the way from the great lakes to here, CLICK HERE to check out my article on lake effect snow.

I think based on the high winds aloft, we'll probably see a few flurries especially in the northwest hills today.  Don't worry about seeing any accumulation with these though!  

The all of our eyes are turned to this storm for Tuesday.  We now have a bunch of models to look at, as the storm comes within the next 4 days.  The models have progressively been trending colder, dryer, and farther south.  What started off as a potential rain event, with some gusty winds, has now turned into a potential snow event, with light accumulations possible.  

Looking at the whole array of forecast models, none of them show any accumulated precip at more than .5 inches of water equivalent, which would mean the highest amount of snow we could possibly get would be 4-5 inches.  This amount is only localized and combining the forecast models all together, the highest amount would be in Southwestern CT, which would likely start off as a mix, changing over to snow when evaporational cooling starts to take effect.  

We'll have to keep a close eye on this one, especially if the models start turning the other way, indicating more snow.  I don't think this will be anything major, although it could effect the Tuesday commutes!

Have a great day everyone!
