UPDATE: White Stuff Won't Quit

Four to seven inches of snow in the forecast through this evening.

Hopefully the kids kept their sleds and parents their shovels at the ready because Old Man Winter isn't done just yet.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory in effect for lower Fairfield County until 10 p.m., reporting that "snow will continue today as low pressure tacks southeast of the region. The snow may fall moderately at times late this morning through this afternoon," and "snowfall accumulations of four to seven inches can be expected by the time the snow ends this evening."

Fortunately, Wilton schools are already on vacation for the day so teachers won't have to factor in another missed day of classes.

But the snow has made for slick roads once again and already delayed the opening of the Wilton Public Library until nooon, which could be pushed back even further.

As of 11:30 a.m., however, police reported that there were no accident areas and said that "as long as everyone stays home, hopefully it will stay that way."

UPDATE: 4 p.m.

The police department is reporting no road closures or delays around town. That said, the roads are still slippery and will become more dangerous as the temperature drops later in the evening.

The Wilton Board of Appeals has canceled this evening's meeting and will continue all items on the agenda until its next meeting date on March 16.

The Board of Selectmen, as of now, is still scheduled to meet tonight at 7:30 p.m.

Snowfall, meanwhile, is expected to continue through around 9 p.m., with up to another inch of snow possible.
