  • Here comes the snow again; 4-7 inches predicted for Wednesday

Nonetheless, the National Weather Service has posted a winter storm watch for Litchfield and Hartford counties from Wednesday morning to early Thursday.

Wayne will be tracking the winter weather beginning on Eyewitness News First at 4. A mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain predicted to begin around 3 a.m. will last into the afternoon.

An all-day snow throughout the region is expected. "A messy mix of snow, sleet, and rain is expected". Any accumulation of ice will be light but some icy spots could occur through Wednesday morning. Another inch of snow is possible in the Kansas City area before 11 p.m.

"Heavy snow (is) possible, with total snow accumulations of 6 inches or more over all of the watch area". There is a 60 percent chance of snow.

Tonight: Snow likely, mainly before 11pm.

The powdery snow changed the look of what had been a dreary landscape and is deep enough for the county to groom and open cross-country ski trails at CamRock County Park, Indian Lake County Park, the Lake Farm County Park and Lewis Nine-Springs E-Way, McCarthy County Park and Token Creek County Park.

Wednesday, the high will be near 30 with sunny skies and a northwest wind of 6 miles per hour, the weather service said.

"We're in a situation where a few miles will determine exactly what'll happen", Gary Lessor, chief meteorologist for the Western Connecticut State University Weather Center said. If that track is farther inland than this immediate storm, northwestern New Jersey will see mostly rain.

Although we haven't had a storm like the early January nor'easter, which broke a snowfall record in the Hartford area, Lessor said the snowfall total is on target.

Now - 1 p.m. Northern areas could see a minor snow accumulation before changing to freezing rain.

Sunday night, the low will be around 17 with mostly cloudy skies, according to the weather service.

The National Weather Service forecast shows a cold but sunny Thursday, another chance for snow on Friday and some rain on Saturday and Sunday.
