This afternoon: Storm tracks east, but Shelton should still get some snow

While a snowstorm still is expected to impact Shelton on late Tuesday into Wednesday, the system’s track has been moving east and now will have its greatest impact on southeastern Massachusetts.

Just be glad you aren’t in Cape Cod, where blizzard conditions are expected and up to a foot of snow could fall, according to the National Weather Service (NWS).

Eastern Connecticut could pick up 4 inches of snow from the storm, the NWS said.

In Shelton, only about an inch of snow now is forecast — with up to 3 inches possible. The NWS' prediction totals have been dropping during the course of the day as the storm continues to head more eastward.

Light snow in afternoon

On Tuesday in Shelton, light snow should begin after 2 p.m. The temperature will be in the low to mid-30s.

More significant snow is likely at night, when winds also will pick up. Total snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches is possible by the next morning, according to the NWS. The overnight low will be 25 degrees.

The snow should end by 10 a.m. on Wednesday, with the sun coming out in the afternoon. The NWS said Wednesday will be breezy, with a daytime high of 36 degrees and nighttime low of 18 degrees.

Thursday and Friday

The NWS forecast for the following days:

Thursday:  Sunny, with a high of 42 degrees and an overnight low of 33 degrees.

Friday:  Rain, especially in the evening, with a high of 56 degrees a low of 44 degrees.
