Here We Go Again: Severe Cold Weather en Route to Wilton

Gov. Malloy has activated Connecticut's severe cold weather protocol to ensure that most vulnerable are protected.

The National Weather Service forecasts a high on Tuesday in Wilton of just 22° and on Wednesday just 17°.

Anticipating the bitter cold temperatures expected to impact the state over the next week, Governor Dannel P. Malloy has activated the state’s Severe Cold Weather Protocol. 

Gov. Malloy has directed the Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security (DEMHS), the Dept. of Social Services (DSS), the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (DMHAS), and the Department of Housing (DOH) to coordinate with 2-1-1 and the state's network of shelters to ensure that the state’s most vulnerable are protected.

“Throughout the winter season, we continue to take the necessary steps to make sure that we can take care of those in need of shelter, especially our state’s most vulnerable populations,” said Governor Malloy in a release. “I urge anyone in need of shelter to call 2-1-1 and encourage local communities to consider opening warming centers or other facilities to help people in need.”

NWS forecasts 1-3" of Snow, for Tuesday, mainly after noon, with a high near 22° and north wind 6 to 13 mph.
