Winter Weather Advisory issued for Tuesday

FI-snow-flakeLast weekend’s storm brought plenty of snow but don’t put away your shovels just yet — the National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for much of Connecticut, including Greenwich, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Up to four inches of snow is expected in town on Tuesday, with the worst coming between the morning and afternoon commutes, according to the NWS.

Accumulations could range from two to four inches, according to the weather service. Visibility might be reduced to less than a half mile for brief periods Tuesday morning.

“Snow will develop during the morning rush hour,” according to the NWS, “and become moderate to locally heavy at times by mid-morning. Snow will taper off to snow showers during the start of the afternoon rush hour.”

According to forecasts, the snow could start as early as 4 a.m. Tuesday. The overnight low is expected to be around 17 with a light wind.

Most of the snow is expected before 3 p.m. Little wind is expected in the morning before picking up a bit as the day goes on. Tuesday’s high is expected to be near 28.

There is a slight chance of snow later Tuesday night and again early Wednesday morning. The low that night into Wednesday morning will be around 19. The chance of overnight snow is 20%. Wednesday’s high could be in the mid-30s before getting up into the low-40s on Thursday; it could be in the upper-40s on Friday with some rain.

“Accumulating snow will create slippery roadways and hazardous travel conditions — especially on untreated roadways,” the weather service said of Tuesday’s storm.

A winter weather advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties.
