Saturday could bring another 3 inches of snow in Shelton

With many residents still clearing snow from Thursday’s major storm, a smaller storm on Saturday threatens to drop another 1 to 3 inches of snow in Shelton.

After a sunny Friday in which the temperature reached into the high 30s in Shelton, the clouds will move in tonight, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

The snow should begin after 9 a.m. Saturday, with temperatures right around the freezing mark in Shelton. The NWS said 1 to 3 inches are possible.

Once the snow moves through, temperatures will drop, with a predicted low of 13 degrees on Saturday night.

Coastal storm

This next storm is moving up the Atlantic coast but is expected to impact southeastern New England more than this part of Connecticut.

If the storm system should alter its course slightly, southwestern Connecticut could either get more or less snow, depending on the storm track.

The NWS has issued a Winter Storm Watch for Rhode Island and southeastern Massachusetts, including Cape Cod, for Saturday and Saturday night. Snowfall in these areas could exceed 6 inches. There also will be high winds.

Upcoming days

Here is the NWS forecast summary for Shelton after Saturday:

Sunday: Cloudy, with slight chance of snow in the afternoon. Daytime high of 25 and nighttime low of 4.

Monday: Cloudy, with a high of 28. Chance of snow at night, with a low of 20.
