CT SNOW TOTAL AMOUNTS: New Canaan has the most so far, but it's early

Snow total amounts appear to be increasing around Connecticut as the night goes on, based on state Department of Transportation (DOT) figures.

The DOT releases snow total amounts every few hours. Here are some of the figures from the DOT report based on inspections made at 11 p.m. on Monday, Jan. 26, before the brunt of the blizzard was expected to hit (beginning at midnight).

The most snow appears to have fallen in the far southwest corner near the Westchester County, N.Y. border, and in southeastern Connecticut (east of New Haven to the Rhode Island border).
