Meteorologist Kevin Arnone loves forecasting weather just about as much as he loves going on vacation.
Even as he packs his bags, he still took time to file this report so we would be ready for what’s to come. Here’s what he has to say:
This will be my last update for the storm as well as for the week. I am on vacation until the 16th of March and will not be able to update my website. I am going on a cruise and I am lucky enough to leave out of New York in which I will be experiencing some monster waves from this nor’easter. I am forecasting 20-30 ft waves!!!! I will try and take pictures for the website. Would you believe that I missed the Blizzard because I was in Vegas and now I’m missing this storm :(
After this storm passes which will be during the day on Friday the next shot of rain will be on Monday/Tuesday on next week. The 11th and 12th. Hopefully it doesn’t change LOL!
OK now on the nor’easter. Rain/Snow showers will start as early as noon. However I don’t expect to see anything steady falling in CT until after 5 PM in which it will start snowing for the entire state of CT. Snow will continue throughout the overnight hours as well as the wind will pick up a lot, check below to see how fast the wind will roar in your town.
Two high tide cycles during this storm may lead to moderate flooding on the coasts, check below to see if you live in those towns. Expect power outages and tree damage. Under my advertisements tab you can check out two landscaping companies that will plow your driveway or business as well as tend to any storm damage you may have. Let them know you saw their ad on CTForecast. The strongest winds and heaviest snow will occur during the overnight hours on Wednesday!
As far as during the day on Thursday is concerned, winds will still be strong but the precipitation will be very light and little to no accumulation will be added on. Mostly light snow inland and a mix/rain on the shore. The AM commute will be very slippery, please leave yourself extra time in the morning. Most of the snow accumulation will fall Wednesday Night. Lingering snow/rain showers will continue until early Friday morning, but no accumulation is expected.
Please everyone be safe, and I will be back on March 16th to continue forecasting the weather!
