Snow moves in Sunday night

Posted: Updated:
ROCKY HILL, CT (WFSB) -

A snow storm is expected to arrive Sunday night and continue through Monday morning, impacting the morning commute.

Meteorologist Mike Cameron said the models started generating a clearer picture of how much snow parts of the state could see.

"Thank goodness the latest model runs that just finished updating are showing better agreement on the particulars of the storm," Cameron said. "The start time will be sometime after around 8 p.m. [and] the end will be around noon [Monday]."

A winter storm warning has been posted for New London County, where between 4 and 8 inches of snow could fall. In addition, a winter weather advisory has been posted for Middlesex, Hartford and New Haven counties starting at 6 p.m. Sunday through 10 a.m. on Monday. A winter storm advisory for Tolland and Windham counties will begin at 10 p.m. on Sunday.

Parking bans started coming into the newsroom on Sunday morning. See the list here.

Sunday morning started off with temperatures in the teens and low 20s for many Connecticut towns. Cameron said to expect clouds to increase and temps to remain cool as the day continues.

"Later in the evening, snow will slowly start in southern Connecticut and slowly work north into the night," he said.

While towns in extreme western Connecticut could see little-to-no snow, towns east of Hartford could see several inches. In New London County, totals could top 6 inches.

Cameron said the 4 to 8 inch margin is for the eastern-most towns like Putnam, Willimantic and Lyme. The greater Hartford and New Haven areas may get 2 to 5 inches.

"Some parts of the northern parts of the state may not see the first flake until midnight or after," Cameron said.

Western Connecticut, especially west of Route 8, could receive at least 2 inches or less.

"Given the temperature profile, this snow will be a wetter, stickier snow," Cameron said.

The Monday morning commute could be impacted by this storm and there could be some slippery spots on the roads, he said.

The snow will end by noon on Monday.

"If there are big changes, we'll keep you apprised," Cameron said.
