A winter storm, the cause of a rapidly south-moving band of low pressure, will bring significant snowfall and gusty winds to our patch throughout the day and into Thursday morning.
The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for southern Fairfield County, in anticipation of blizzard-like conditions.
Strong winds of 35 to 45 mph will make for reduced visibility, and snow is likely to accumulate quickly, even on treated roadways. Traveling is ill advised. If you must drive, Wilton Police urge you to drive with extra caution.
Meteorologists anticipate as much as 15 to 20 inches of snow accumulation by tomorrow, and Wilton students have placed their bets on yet another snow day.
