Greater Danbury Could See Up to 12 Inches During Nor’Easter
As we brace for yet another Nor'easter, I contacted our meteorologist, Bill Jacquemin, to give us the latest forecast.
A significant winter storm is beginning to take shape to our south and west. An initial wave of low pressure will quickly scoot eastward passing well south of Long Island by early this evening. Another associated low emerging in the Carolinas will move to a position just off the Mid-Atlantic coast by dawn Wednesday. Strong upper level dynamics will intensify this low and draw it just offshore of the mouth of the Delaware Bay. This system will spread snow across the region early Wednesday with some intense banding developing by around midday that will continue through the afternoon. 1 to 2 inch per hour snowfall rates, and embedded thunder are expected in the heaviest bands. The storm will slowly pivot to a position southeast of Cape Cod late Wednesday night causing the snow to end from west to east before dawn Thursday. -Meteorologist Bill Jacquemin
