Moderate to heavy snow was falling across the entire state at 3:30 p.m. An average of 2 to 4 inches of snow has fallen with some areas reporting 1"/hour snowfall rates.

Increasingly heavy snow is overspreading the state from south to north. This will cause snowfall rates to increase to between 1 and 2 inches per hour through 6 p.m. Road conditions, even along the shoreline, are becoming very slippery. Also, winds are gusting as high as 30 MPH. Visibility was down to a 1/4 mile in portions of the state.
3.0 inches was on the ground in New Haven as of 3:15 p.m. 

The worst of the snow will fall between 6 p.m. and 2 a.m. This is when winds will increase to between 20 and 30 MPH with gusts to 50 and even 60 MPH. Snowfall rates will reach 3"/hour in spots along with embedded thunderstorms.

The heaviest snow is expected to impact central and eastern Connecticut, with those areas finishing off with anywhere from 12 to 24 inches. Totals near the N.Y. border will be roughly around 12 inches.
