Could the First Full Day of Spring Bring More Snow to Connecticut?
On Ground Hog's Day, Punxsutawney Phil predicted a long, six more weeks of Winter, and he sure was right. But will the first full day of Spring in New England remind us Winter still isn't over yet?
Springtime should bring buds of flowers popping up in your garden, and more days without being bundled up like Nanook of the North.
Spring officially arrives at 12:15 p.m. on Tuesday, and according to the meteorologists at nbcconnecticut.com, some accumulating snow could also arrive late on Tuesday, potentially coated the state with cold white stuff on Wednesday, the first full day of Spring.
The current forecast from the National Weather Service shows the following:
Tuesday Night: A 40 percent chance of snow, mainly after 2 a.m. Cloudy, with a low around 28. Wind chill values between 15 and 25. Blustery, with a northeast wind 14 to 20 mph.
Wednesday: Snow likely, mainly between 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. Cloudy, with a high near 35. Breezy, with a north wind around 23 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60 percent. New snow accumulation of 2 to 4 inches possible.
Wednesday Night: A 30 percent chance of snow before 8pm. Cloudy, then gradually becoming partly cloudy, with a low around 28. Blustery.
This girl need flip-flops and bare legs, and I need it right now. NO MORE SNOW!
