However, the latest model runs keep the bulk of the storm off the New England Coast with a minimal impact on CT. Luckily winds will not be as strong as the last storm.
Whatever snow falls will be heavy and wet, which means there's the possibility of downed power lines, broken tree limbs and renewed power outages in places already hit hard by last week's nor'easter.
The latest trend that we're seeing today is to take the storm's track closer to CT. It will continue to lightly snow overnight Monday and into Tuesday morning. Another think we're watching is something called the "dry slot". As this storm moves eastward, snowfall will be slowly diminishing across the prairies into Tuesday.
A WINTER STORM WARNING remains in effect for all of CT (except for New London County where a WINTER STORM WATCH is in effect) from Wednesday morning through Thursday morning with Winter Storm Elsa on the way! The warning is in effect from 7 a.m. on Wednesday to 1 p.m. on Thursday. Wednesday morning, energy transfers from the primary low to a developing coastal low east of the Delmarva Peninsula. Tomorrow will bring plenty of clouds and even some rain and snow showers at times. Total snow accumulations of 2 to 4 inches, with localized amounts up to 5 inches, and ice accumulations of a glaze are expected. There may be a period of sleet and freezing rain mixing with the snow across northeast Iowa during the morning hours. Warmer air in the Valley is likely to limit amounts. Precipitation type will be either snow or rain. Windy, with a north northwest wind 21 to 25 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 43 miles per hour.More news: Putin: Russia will 'never' extradite citizens accused by US
There's no doubt our next nor'easter is going to bring significant snow and significant rain to the region. This snow will be wet and heavy. Highest will be in the upper 30s north, to upper 40s south. In either case, some snow and slick travel are likely for the middle of the week across the entire area, so those with travel plans should plan accordingly. This storm moves northeast off the New England Coast on Thursday. Light snow could linnger into the mornign commute for areas in northern/northeastern CT.
Thursday night: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 28. Chance of precipitation is 70 percent.
High pressure should push in from the west Wednesday giving us partly sunny skies.
