Tonight's snow could impact Monday morning drive

Posted: Updated:

Snow moved into Connecticut on Sunday evening and is expected to impact the Monday morning commute.

Meteorologist Mike Cameron said the beginning of spring will feel a little more like winter, as parts of the state could see between 4” and 8” of snow.

“Specifically, we are forecasting 4-8” of snow for eastern-most Connecticut, mainly Putnam-Willimantic-Lyme and points east, and a 2-5” of snow for central portions of the state, including Greater Hartford and New Haven,” Cameron said, adding that the western part of the state will get 2” of snow or less.

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 was 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 began at 10 p.m. on Sunday.

Parking bans and school delays were being posted on Sunday evening. See the list here.

Snow was moving through the state on Sunday evening, but Cameron said the snowfall would ramp up after midnight from south to north.

The Monday morning commute could be impacted by this storm as there could be some slippery and slushy spots on the roads.

"Snow will continue through mid-morning and then start to slowly wind down. Most if not all of the snow will end by noon," Cameron said.

He added that in areas where several inches of snow are expected, scattered power outages are possible due to the weight of snow on tree limbs and wires.

The week will start out chilly, but will likely end with temperatures hitting levels that are normal for April and May.
