February 17, 2019

Forecasters predict a tricky Monday morning commute after slightly increasing snowfall estimates for Sunday night’s storm.

Litchfield County is forecasted to see the most snow in the area, with two to five inches predicted, according to the National Weather Service.

Meanwhile, between two to four inches of snow is expected to fall over night on Fairfield and New Haven counties, according to the agency. The service also predicts a light glaze of ice.

A winter weather advisory is in effect from 9 p.m. Sunday to 10 a.m. Monday.

Roads are expected to be slippery in Fairfield and New Haven counties, affecting the Monday morning commute, the advisory said.

In Litchfield County, roads will likely also be slippery, but low visibility is also predicted. The National Weather Service said traveling will be “particularly hazardous” in that county late Sunday night into Monday morning.

The National Weather Service had originally estimated snow and sleet accumulations would reach two to three inches in southern Connecticut.
