As of 6 p.m., slightly more than 4 inches of snow has fallen in southern Shelton.

A ruler, above, was placed inside untouched snow on top of a picnic table at that time to come up with the measurement. (The first number visible above the snow is 5 inches.)

 

Little traffic on local roads

Traffic on local roads has now thinned out considerably, with many people now home from work and staying inside the night.

There’s still heavy, slow-moving traffic on Route 8 northbound, however, as drivers try to navigate their way home — many coming from jobs in southern Fairfield County.

A car travels north on Bridgeport Avenue in Shelton at about 6 p.m. on Tuesday, at the height of the snowstorm.

Up to 10 inches is possible in Shelton, with areas closer to the coast expected to get the most accumulation from this storm.
