STORM WATCH: Snowstorm could bring 4-8 inches of snow to Connecticut; 12 inches of snow possible further east
Today will be cold but sunny as a winter storm set to impact Connecticut this weekend moves closer into the region.
A winter storm watch will go into effect Friday night through Saturday as a potential large snowstorm heads our way.
Snow totals could be between 4 and 8 inches for parts of lower Fairfield County while snow totals East of the state could result in 1 foot of snow.
Today will feature mostly sunny skies with highs near 30 degrees.
News 12 meteorologists are still watching the weekend and the chances of a major winter storm. Some of the computer models are now showing it may be a little further east than projected, meaning lower chances of higher accumulations. All scenarios are still on the table, but this new trend needs to be watched closely today.
There is a chance of lots of snow on Saturday, very windy conditions, coastal flooding at times of high tides, beach erosion and the possibility of power outages.
The storm track could change before Saturday, so stay with News 12 for updates as the forecast develops.
