A fast-moving clipper system could bring snow to Shelton on Wednesday, but accumulation amounts shouldn’t be too significant.
UPDATE Wednesday 6 a.m.: The clipper system now appears to be going farther south than first predicted, making any measurable snowfall in Shelton less likely.
The light snow should arrive later than some earlier estimates, perhaps between 8 p.m. and midnight on Wednesday.
The National Weather Service (NWS) is predicting up to a half inch of snow could fall Wednesday night in Shelton, with a chance for more minimal snow on Thursday morning until 10 a.m.
The Weather Channel’s weather.com also is predicting the clipper system shouldn’t drop large amounts of snow, but said anywhere from a dusting to a few inches in possible along the system’s path through the upper Midwest and Northeast.
Temps in the teens tonight
Meanwhile, it will get cold tonight — with clearing skies to allow temperatures to drop to around 16 degrees in Shelton Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, the NWS said.
It will become increasingly cloudy on Wednesday as the clipper system nears. The Wednesday high will be near 30 degrees, according to the NWS.
After mid-week, the next chance for some snow in Shelton is Saturday night.
