Spring today, snowstorm tomorrow


The National Weather Service released on Tuesday morning, Nov. 25, this snow total forecast for the Thanksgiving Eve storm.

It will feel like spring again today before turning to winter tomorrow as up to eight inches of snow falls in southwestern Connecticut.

A winter storm watch is in effect for southwestern Connecticut from Wednesday morning, Nov. 26, through Thanksgiving morning, Nov. 27, according to the National Weather Service.

A mixture of rain and snow on Wednesday morning is expected to change to all snow by Wednesday afternoon, significantly impacting one of the busiest travel days of the year.

Forecasts are now predicting four to eight inches of heavy snow in Fairfield, and even higher accumulation to the north in Ridgefield and Danbury.

A winter storm watch means there is a potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulations that might impact travel.

After a wet but warm Monday where temperatures were in the low-60s, the unseasonable warmth will continue on Tuesday with highs again in the 60s. But it will cool Tuesday night with lows in the upper-30s and some possible overnight rain.

Wednesday morning should start with a mix of rain and snow with highs in the low-40s before turning to all snow in the afternoon with accumulations of three to five inches by night. Wednesday will be breezy with north winds 15 to 20 mph with gusts up to 30 mph during the storm. More snow is likely Wednesday evening with lows in the lower 30s.

The storm will be gone by Thanksgiving morning when Fairfield Ludlowe meets Fairfield Warde on the field at Ludlowe High. For the game, it is expected to be cloudy with highs in the low-40s and a northwest wind of five to 10 mph.
