After months and months of no winter weather, and with just a month until spring, winter has finally arrived in Greenwich.
The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning for Greenwich and the entire state of Connecticut for Monday night and Tuesday.
There is a 100% chance of snow and a low of 32° Monday night, and new snow accumulation of 4 to 8 inches possible.
The I95 corridor is anticipated to be closer to four inches because it will be wetter than northern parts of the state.
There is a 90% chance of rain and snow on Tuesday with a high of 38°.
The snow is expected Tuesday before 10:00am, then rain and snow likely between 10:00am and 4:00pm, then a slight chance of rain after 4:00pm. High near 38. Wind chill values between 20 and 30. East wind 5 to 13 mph becoming north in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 23 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New snow accumulation of less than one inch possible.
Tuesday night will be mostly cloudy, then gradually becoming mostly clear with a low of around 27°.
According to Accuweather, there is a high risk of significant travel disruptions from New York and northern Pennsylvania to much of New England from later Monday to Tuesday, where all or mostly snow and ice is likely from the storm.
“This is likely to be the biggest storm of the season to date for much of the Northeast, including New York City,” AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist and New England native Joe Lundberg said.
But wait, there’s more…
After a sunny midle day on Wednesday with a high of 45°, a second storm is slated to arrive at the end of the week. Snow is in the forecast from Friday night into Saturday and could be heavy.
