The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Southern Connecticut and Winter Storm Warnings for Litchfield, Hartford, Tolland and Windham counties beginning this evening and continuing until mid-afternoon on Wednesday.
Snowflakes will start falling Tuesday afternoon, and by Wednesday morning forecasters expect there to be 4 to 7 inches of snow blanketing local yards thanks to a combination of two weather systems. The NWS expects a high around 29 degrees, wind chill values as low as 2 degrees and gusts reaching 25 miles per hour.
The high snowfall projection for Wednesday, Jan. 17, calls for as many as seven inches of snow in the Danbury area. The cold wind chills will cause frostbite in as little as 30 minutes to exposed skin. He encouraged anyone who must be outside when it is a wind chill factor of 5 to "wear plenty of layers" and also wear a hat and gloves.
The sun returns on Thursday with high temperatures in the 40s with lows in the low 20s. High near 32. North wind 3 to 7 miles per hour.
Sierra Nevada Winter Storm Watch Issued
Thursday night: Partly cloudy, low around 20. Additional snow accumulations of up to one inch are expected. Temperatures won't reach quite as high as they did last Friday, but it could still be unseasonably mild with a high of 45 forecast Saturday and 50 on Sunday, according to the weather service.
Friday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 37. Winds are expected to be sustained at 27 miles per hour with a low of 24 degrees.
Monday, it will be sunny with a high near 42, the weather service said. We watch for the next shower chance, but for now, Sunday should be dry. This rain will change over to a winter mix and then to snow Monday night. Chance of precipitation is 70 percent.
Abundant sunshine on Monday will give way to snow on Tuesday across the region.
House Intelligence Committee Republican calls for release of FISA abuse memo
There seems to be something more concerning the FBI, DOJ, and apparently now how FISA is used by the intelligence community. I no longer hold out hope there is an innocent explanation for the information the public has seen.
