Shelton School district is closed Feb. 8

Snow has already hit Southwestern Connecticut and schedules are being affected.

Shelton School district is closed for today, Feb. 8.

Fairfield and Westchester counties are under a winter weather advisory until 6 p.m. Monday, with snow starting to fall Monday morning, the storm arriving from east to west.

Some schools have closed, while others are letting students out early.

Accumulations of 2 to 4 inches of snow possible, according to the National Weather Service, which warns of the potential for hazardous driving conditions. Northeast winds of 5 to 15 miles per hour are expected, with gusts up to 25 miles per hour possible, and temperatures in the lower 30s.

A winter weather advisory means periods of snow will cause travel difficulties, and cautions drivers to be prepared for slippery roads and reduced visibility.

Along the Long Island Sound, a coastal flood advisory remains in effect from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday. Forecasters predict tides two to two and one-half feet higher than normal at high tide, and say minor coastal flooding is possible.
