CONNECTICUT WEATHER'S LATEST WEATHER DISCUSSION

February 19, 2021                       7:30 AM   

      A weak, elongated area of low pressure offshore will continue its interaction with a strong jet stream flow aloft. The result will be a continuation of light snow for today. Any lingering freezing drizzle areas near immediate shoreline locations will go back to snow. Some minor additional accumulations will occur, generally 1-2 inches. Low pressure will pull away this evening bringing an end to light snow shortly after sunset. Untreated wet surfaces will become slippery again tonight as lows fall back through the 20s. High pressure will build east from the Ohio Valley and bring clearing skies along with breezy and cold conditions for tomorrow. Lighter winds are expected Sunday as high pressure passes overhead. Low pressure will bring snow, mixing with rain Monday. It will be dry and seasonable through the middle of the week with increasing sunshine and highs returning to near 40. A cold front Thursday may briefly bring a chilly airmass back for the end of the week. There are signs in the long range the over all pattern is becoming more progressive though which would prevent the cold blasts from sticking around as long.
