Ice Pellets? Sleet? Freezing Rain? Ewww….

The good news: we’re supposed to get another inch or two of snow tonight.  

The bad news: It’s supposed to be followed by sleet, freezing rain, and/or normal rain.

Connecticut winter strikes again!

… Winter Weather Advisory in effect from midnight tonight to
1 PM EST Sunday…

The National Weather Service in Upton has issued a Winter Weather
Advisory… which is in effect from midnight tonight to 1 PM EST
Sunday.

Snow is expected to develop across the area late this evening.
Then as warmer air moves in aloft… the snow will mix with and
then change to sleet late tonight… and then change to freezing
rain by early morning Sunday. Freezing rain is expected to
continue through early afternoon… before changing to plain rain.
The period of heaviest precipitation will be Sunday morning
through Sunday afternoon. 1 to 2 inches of total combined snow
and sleet accumulation are expected before any changeover… and
then an additional 2 to 4 tenths of an inch of ice accumulation is
possible before precipitation changes to rain.

In addition… northeast winds could gust as high as 30 mph Sunday
morning into the afternoon. The gusty winds could knock down some
ice covered power lines and overhanging limbs… resulting in power
outages.

A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow… sleet… or
freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for
slippery roads and limited visibilities… and use caution while
driving.

    i’d suggest summarizing the important points and providing a link. i don’t want to know every detail of the weather, just if it’ll be hot or cold and whether there will be precipitation and what kind.this really is not a window.

    I like your tag—and your use of Weather Underground. Are you looking to become our official weatherman, Matt?
