A quick update as this storm rolls in!

Snow rates will allow for some quick accumulation across the state. First to see a changeover will be immediate shoreline across Southeastern Ct. The changeover will take longer for Western and Northwestern Ct. I expect the highest totals in NW CT and North Central Ct around Granby and the the southwest around Burlington to about Bristol! 8" possible in these areas.

The Storm Prediction Center has put a statement out indicating the risk for some lightning with this initial burst that goes through 7-9PM...especially for Northern and Western Connecticut!

Shoreline areas could see 1" to 2" of rain once the changeover occurs.

There are other issues to watch as well. The tide will be running much higher than usual tonight. Some surge products show levels one to three feet above normal. I would be prepared from 8PM on tonight as the water rises.

Winds will be gusty as well! I expect numerous gusts 45-50 mph with 60mph possible in a few places. 925mb through 850mb holding some good winds in the grid data! The strongest winds look to occur as the tide is going out. That is good! Flip side-there could be some power outages.

I did a quick video update for you...non shaved and Arctic Cat hat on LOL! I will be on tomorrow morning!
