As low pressure develops south of New England Friday night, a period of snow looks likely for the entire state of Connecticut.

Friday: Most of the day stays dry, but light snow develops sometime after 5 p.m.
Friday night: Periods of light snow across the state with light accumulations expected.
Saturday: Lingering clouds and a few flurries may pass through the area.

Right now, I still think most of us can see up to 2 inches of snowfall.
However, the potential exists for slightly higher snowfall amounts, especially for southern and southeastern Connecticut, closer to the center of low pressure.

Stay tuned to WXedge.com as we will monitor data tonight and first thing Thursday morning to see what the latest trends are.

The computer models have bounced back and forth, as they were showing a significant storm a few days ago, but some of them showed no storm at all yesterday. I think we're now seeing the models adjust from one extreme to another, so I do expect light snow for Friday night. Combine this with cold temperatures in the atmosphere and snowfall ratios may also be in the 15:1 to 20:1 range, which is higher than "average." Basically, that means that light, fluffy snow could accumulate quickly with this system.
