Ready for a weekend blast of winter? Forecasters are keeping their eye on a snowstorm that could be headed right for Greenwich. So far the forecast, does not seem bad, but watchful eyes are keeping an eye on the weather.
And as we wait, some more light snow is expected today, Wednesday, Feb. 6, in Greenwich similar to the light dustings that coated the town Tuesday morning and night. What forecasters have their eye on though is the big storm that could bring a lot snow on Friday. However it could also turn into rain and it’s too early to tell how this area will be affected.
After a Tuesday of light snow in the area, more light snow is expected Wednesday before the sun arrives and the temperature rises to 40. The weather is expected to remain clear until Thursday night when there is another chance of snow, mainly after midnight. Thursday’s high is expected to be near 32 and the low 26. But it’s Friday that a lot of forecasters have their eye on.
On Wednesday morning, the National Weather Service issued a hazardous weather outlook for Southern Connecticut,including Southern Fairfield County. According to the warning, low pressure will pass south of Long Island on Friday and then rapidly intensify as it moves into the Gulf of Maine with snow developing Thursday night with moderate accumulations by Friday morning. It is then expected to change back to rain on Friday before becoming snow again during the night.
“Significant snowfall and strong winds with near blizzard conditions are likely Friday night,” the weather service warns, but it’s unclear how much of that is going to impact Greenwich. Current forecasts have Greenwich receiving mostly rain and not much snowfall, but that could change.
