Another big storm is headed this way this weekend — but for now it is expected to be mostly rain along the coast and a mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain inland, according to a National Weather Service hazardous weather outlook.
With the potential for one to two inches of rain, coupled with melting from the recent blizzard, the storm could lead to flooding if it rains more than snows. Winds during the storm, which is expected to last from Saturday to Sunday, could be 31 to 39 mph with gust of 46 to 57 mph, according to some forecasts.
“There is still quite a bit of uncertainty for this event though and in the track and magnitude as well as timing will lead to changes in precipitation amounts and type,” according to the weather service.
The weather service adds that the more inland areas of Connecticut could get “significant snowfall accumulations.”
While Thursday is going to be another cold, windy day, it is expected to warm up before the storm arrives this weekend. Temperatures should be in the mid to high 30s on Thursday and Friday.
