Update:

All town offices close at 3:00 p.m. today due to the winter storm. Meetings for this evening have been cancelled. The Board of Education meeting, at which the 2014-15 budget is scheduled to be presented, has been moved to Thursday at 6:30 p.m.

The National Weather Service says a winter storm watch is in effect from Tuesday afternoon until late Tuesday night. 

Snow accumulations of four to eight inches, and the chance of some locally higher accumulations, are possible across Connecticut. North winds could be 15 to 25 mph, with gusts up to 30 mph. 

And it will be cold. Temperatures will be in the teens to lower 20s during the day and could drop to single digits at night—the wind will make it feel like about 10 below zero. 

Visibilities could drop to one quarter to one half mile at times, the NWS says. 

When Will the Snow Start?

The snowfall is expected to begin late Tuesday morning and continue into Tuesday night, with the heaviest snowfall expected Tuesday afternoon and evening. 

"Falling, blowing, and drifting snow will cause hazardous travel and walking conditions across the area, possibly [affecting] the late afternoon and evening commute," the National Weather Service reports. "Extreme cold and low wind chills could cause frost bite. Dress appropriately."
