Lumbering Nor'easter Set to Hit North Haven Today

Forecasting the weather system remains "tricky" meteorologists say, but high winds, snow and freezing rain are now expected to hit the North Haven area by later today.

The next three days will be stormy and unsettled as a slow-moving Nor'easter — a storm some forecasters are calling "weird" — trudges toward the Northeast, bringing high winds, a mix of snow and rain, and possibly coastal flooding.

This latest winter storm is set to hit Connecticut about one month after a devastating blizzard struck the state, dumping more than 30 inches of snow on some towns, closing some school districts for days and paralyzing traffic on snow-clogged streets.

'Tricky Forecast'

According to the National Weather Service the storm presents a "tricky forecast, though many of the computer models tracking it "have come into better agreement with timing and general path. As of early this morning the low was pushing through the mid-Atlantic region with the models still bringing it offshore almost due east during the day today."

North Haven Warnings

For North Haven, the weather service has issued:

Sustained winds associated with the storm will be about 30 miles per hour and wind gusts could reach up to 50 mph, the weather service forecast states.

Merging Storms

The southern storm will merge with a weather system coming down at us from the north, bringing a mix of precipitation and high winds that will remain over the state from later today through Friday morning.

The precipitation from the long-duration storm is expected to start out as rain and then change over to snow later today and tonight.

Snow will continue overnight and through the day Thursday, with accumulations of as much as 6-9 inches in some parts of the state.
