The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for Northern Connecticut, describing a "significant" storm that will deliver "a period of heavy snow followed by sleet, freezing rain and then all rain" on Monday night into Tuesday.
"The final snowfall totals will be determined by the timing of the transition from all snow to mixed precipitation," the weather service said. "This will result in treacherous travel conditions later tonight into at least Tuesday morning."
Snow accumulations could be from 4 to 8 inches, along with a coating of ice, across Northern Connecticut, the weather service said. Strong winds are predicted as well.
In Farmington, the weather service predicts snow will start after 2 a.m., switching to sleet before 5 a.m., then returning to snow around 5 a.m., with possible accumulation up to 5 inches.
The Winter Storm Warning is in effect from 9 p.m. Monday to 11 a.m. Tuesday.
This winter has been marked by a series of significant storms causing school closures and delays, road closures, and disruptions to business. Farmington Superintendent of Schools Kathleen Greider announced Friday that the new last day of school would be June 27, barring any more snow days.
