The Greenwich area may be impacted by a possible severe weather event. Rain will be the main concern, but it is possible to also see snow fall accumulations of 2- 4 inches near the coast, possibly more in the back country. Greenwich may see flooding, high winds and power outages. The storm appears to be complex and accurate weather reporting may be difficult.
Mixed precipitation becoming heavier during the evening and changing over to wet snow NW of the I 84 corridor by midnight. The rain/snow line is then forecast to move south during heavier precipitation and back to the north during lighter precipitation overnight. Snowfall rates overnight could reach 1-2 inches per hour causing a major impact on driving especially above 1,000 feet. Northeast winds gusting to 40 45 MPH at times combined with the wet snow sticking to trees are likely to cause a moderate numbe of power outages from uprooted trees and broken limbs.
Moderate to heavy wet snow is expected to overspread the entire state during the day. The wet snow combined with strong north winds will likely cause additional power outages. Major impacts are possible on driving conditions and power outages with snowfall rates of 1-2 inches per hour at times.
The wet snow is forecast to continue for several hours before ending around midnight with strong Northwest winds continuing for most of the night. Additional power outages are likely.
The Town of Greenwich Emergency Mangament Director will be updating the storm information Monday morning. 3-13-23.
