Winter Storm “Ferris” is quickly approaching our area and could bring 6 to 12 inches of snow or more to eastern and northeastern Connecticut, according to a WFSB Channel 3 Eyewitness News weather report. “Four to 8 inches could in be store for the Interstate 91 corridor and 3 to 6 inches is currently in the forecast for areas west of Route 8,” the report indicates.
This is Connecticut’s third nor’easter in less than two weeks.
“A winter storm warning goes into effect for Hartford, northern Fairfield, northern Litchfield, northern Middlesex, northern New Haven, northern New London, Tolland and Windham counties from 11 p.m. on Monday to 8 p.m. on Tuesday,” reports WFSB. They say “thundersnow” is possible, along with wind gusts of over 40 mph. It will most probably be heavy and wet snow similar to the last storm “Elsa” likely bringing more power outages.
The National Weather Service reports that the timing of the snow storm will be this evening into Tuesday afternoon. (Heaviest snow Midnight thru Tuesday Morning) for Long Island and southern Connecticut.
