NWS: Parts of CT could see snow on Sunday

The latest forecasts are calling for the possibility of snow across much of the state on Sunday, according to the National Weather Service.

The state’s coastal communities could see up to seven inches of snow, the agency said in an alert Friday afternoon. Lower Fairfield and New Haven counties are under a winter storm watch from late Saturday night through Sunday afternoon.

In the eastern part of the state, the storm could affect areas further inland. All of Middlesex and New London counties are under the winter storm watch as well, along with parts of northeast New Jersey and southeast New York are also included in the winter storm watch.

Unlike the recent storm that dumped more than a foot of snow across most of Connecticut and the region, the snowfall accumulation predictions for Sunday remain low for most of the state.

Northern Fairfield and New Haven counties could see snow accumulation on Sunday as low pressures move off the coast.

“Potential is increasing for accumulating snow Sunday,” the weather service said. “Please note specific details on amounts, timing, intensity and track are still uncertain at this time but initial estimates indicate a good chance seeing at least 2 inches.”

With the snow comes poor visibility and hazardous travel during the day Sunday, the weather service said. There is also the potential for gusty winds.

The latest forecasts say snow will start Sunday morning and continue throughout the day before it tapers off Sunday evening.
