Some parts of Connecticut could see snow flurries on Tuesday.
HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -
Cold weather and snow flurries are possible Monday and Tuesday, but that's nothing compared to what could happen Thursday if the predictions of several weather computer models come true.
According to the Channel 3 Early Warning Weather Center, Monday is expected to be windy, with gusts to more than 30 mph possible. As the day continues, temperatures are expected to drop from the 30s to 20s by the afternoon, and with clear skies Monday night, temperatures could fall into the teens or single digits.
On Tuesday some snow showers are possible as a weak clipper system moves through New England during the midday hours. There is a possibility of a light coating in some spots in Connecticut, Channel 3 Early Warning Weather Chief Meteorologist Bruce DePrest said.
Tuesday is supposed to be significantly cold, but the snow is expected to stop before the ball drops on the New Year, DePrest said.
New Year's Day is expected to be dry and cold, according to DePrest. However by Thursday and Friday, some significant snow could fall across the state if all of the major medium-range models agree that a large storm forms off the coast of New England.
A long duration storm, which is a storm lasting more than 24 hours, is expected to hit the state Thursday and continue into Friday.
According to the Channel 3 Early Warning Forecast Center, each model and various runs are continuing to differ on the details: where the storm will track, how cold it will be, wind strength, the amount of moisture and what type of precipitation would fall from the sky.
