The potential continues to increase for an accumulating, and possibly plowable, snowfall for portions of the region on Saturday.

  • 2-3 inches of snow is likely across Suffolk County, NY and Middlesex and New London counties in CT.  Elsewhere, 1-2 inches of snow is expected with the exception of western Orange County, where less than an inch is likely. View the weather map for details on snow total amounts.
  • Please note that there is still some uncertainty with the track and intensification of this system, so there is still a 1 in 10 chance of seeing more than 3 to 6 inches.
