Next snowstorm likely to bring 4-8 inches

February is over but winter isn’t.

Predictions for how much snow New Canaan and the rest of southwestern Connecticut will get Sunday into Monday vary from an inch to more than a foot — depending on who you ask.

There is the potential for up to six inches of snow from late Sunday afternoon into Monday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service. But the weather service notes that “any change in the track and intensity of the system may have an impact on the amount of precipitation expected.”

WiltonBulletin.com and HANRadio.com will feature coverage of the storm and how it impacts the region on Monday morning, March 3, at 6 a.m.

The area should get at least four inches, according to Jacob Meisel of SWCTWeather.com. His forecast for Sunday and Monday is in the four to eight inch range, as of Saturday morning.

This is a lot less than the 12 inches many forecasters were predicting on Friday morning.

Snow is expected to start after 3 p.m. on Sunday, with less than a half-inch of accumulation by Sunday night, according to the weather service. Sunday’s high could be near 34, which could mean some of the precipitation could come as sleet or freezing rain. Mr. Meisel says it could start as early as 1 p.m.

The heavier snow is expected Sunday night into Monday with one to three inches falling Sunday night. On Monday morning another one to three inches is expected in this area.

Sunday’s low is expected to be 17; Monday’s high is expected to be near 25 before dropping to 5 overnight.

The heaviest snow is expected between 5 a.m. and noon on Monday, March 3, according to Mr. Meisel. He says school closings are possible Monday.
