It’s the question on everyone’s mind. Just how much snow will we see tomorrow? Fortunately, we have forecasters tirelessly working to tell us just that. Unfortunately, they can’t seem to decide upon a set amount.
Either way, snow will fall tomorrow so exercise caution on the roads!
The nation’s utmost authority on anything and all weather, Weather.com predicts the state will experience about 5 inches of snow. A couple of northerly pockets might see up to 8 inches, however. That doesn’t seem too bad when comparing it to the Bombagenesis we saw a week ago. T
This storm, called Inga, also plans to mix with sleet and freezing rain on top of all the snow. That mostly applies to the southeastern portion of the state and also along the shoreline.
That, on the other hand, sounds awful. So definitely keep your wits about you on the roads tomorrow.
Now, onto our friends at WFSB who call the oncoming storm Clare. Their report vastly differs from Weather.com. They predict differing snowfall amounts for parts of the state. For example, the northwest will see 5 to 10 inches of snow and issued a Winter Storm Warning for Hartford, Litchfield, Tolland and Windham Counties.
For the middle band of CT, we’ll see between 4 to 8 inches of snow. Then, for the shoreline, they say a gentle 2 to 4 inches will cover the area tomorrow.
However, they might revise these snow totals downwards later today as the storm draws closer.
Now, onto the National Weather Service, who predict 3 to 5 inches of snow will impact the state. However, their primary concern lies on the road conditions that could impact morning traffic. On top of slippery roads, they also worry about reduced visibility.
Also, give those plows plenty of space and try not to pass them tomorrow. Governor Malloy urges motorists to resist the urge after an impatient SUV collided with a plow and severely damaged the truck earlier this month.
Meanwhile, NBC Connecticut says we’ll definitely see more snow than that. Northern part of CT, they predict you’ll get up to 10 inches. Central CT will see 3 to 6 inches, while the shoreline enjoys a dusting of 1 to 3 inches.
But, instead of worrying about road conditions, they worry about flooding due to ice jams. Their primary concern is the Housatonic and Connecticut Rivers, who flooded in some areas. For example, the town of Kent issued a state of emergency due to extreme flooding. So if you live along the waterfronts, have a plan handy just in case the worst happens.
Lastly, onto Fox 61. They predict 5 to 9 inches for Northern CT, 3 to 5 for Central CT, and 1 to 3 inches along the shoreline.
Snow should begin falling tonight with the heaviest expected tomorrow morning, during your morning commute. So leave with plenty of time and drive slow.
