A major winter storm brought a widespread area of accumulating snow to the region, with over a foot of snow reported in portions of southern New England!
Though the storm wasn’t expected to bring this much snow, we did see a heavy band of snow set up at the onset over Connecticut and Rhode Island, which enabled the system to pump out an incredible 1 to 2 inch snowfall rates per hour!
The good news is that the system is moving fast, and many areas will see clearing through Friday evening as low pressure rapidly pulls away from the region. In the storm’s wake, we’ll see temperatures plummeting into the teens south and single digits north, with a gusty northwest wind making it feel much colder.
