Tuesday, Nov. 27, 7:48 — One to three inches of snow could stick Tuesday in Redding and possibly mix with rain Tuesday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.
The snow is expected to accumulate along inland roadways where temperatures early Tuesday were below freezing, according to the weather service. Just before sunrise, it was 35 degrees in Redding. At 7:48 a.ma., the temperature was 32 degrees.
“Bands of light snow that were developing over parts of the lower Hudson Valley before daybreak should move into southern Connecticut this morning,” the service said in a special weather statement issued Tuesday morning. “Light snow should change to rain by late this morning along the immediate coast and mix with rain this afternoon farther inland.”
The precipitation is expected to turn to all snow Tuesday evening before tapering off Tuesday night. Total snow accumulations could range up to three inches, according to some forecasts, north of the Merritt Parkway, one to two inches north of Interstate 95, and less than inch along the immediate coastline.
No Connecticut school delays or closings were reported by 6:15 a.m. Tuesday.
Monday, Nov. 26 — Snow could start to fall in Redding after midnight Tuesday and could leave up to three inches by Tuesday night, according to various weather forecasts for southwestern Connecticut. While forecasters agree it will not be a big snow storm on Tuesday, they do not agree on just how much snow — and rain — that means.
The heaviest snow could fall during the Tuesday morning commute. Most forecasts are calling for about one inch of snow before it turns to rain by Tuesday afternoon but some say it could remain snow most of Tuesday.
The National Weather Service is predicting snow and rain Tuesday morning, then all rain by the afternoon when highs could reach the upper 30s. The weather service says snow accumulation will total up to an inch in this area. The could be more snow Tuesday evening as the temperatures drop into the upper 20s.
Other forecasters, including SWCTWeather.com, are predicting up to three inches just a few miles north of the coast and are warning that snow could last into the afternoon.
