Another round of wintry weather is headed our way, two weeks after the record-breaking Feb. 8 blizzard that left Granby and East Granby under two feet of snow.
'Widespread' & 'Significant'
The storm is predicted to bring with it "widespread" and "significant" precipitation.
"The precipitation is forecast to be mainly rain at the coast and a wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain inland," the meteorologists stated in their report, with a "possibility for significant snowfall accumulations across Connecticut's "far interior zones."
They added, however, that there is "still quite a bit of uncertainty" for this storm, and where area's receive mainly snow or mainly rain — or a mix in between — will depend on how the storm eventually tracks.
Here is this weekend's weather outlook for Granby and East Granby:
- Saturday: Snow likely before 3pm, then rain and snow. High near 35. East wind 3 to 8 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 2 inches possible.
