Mix of Wet, Heavy Snow Expected This Weekend in Farmington

Farmington has just recovered from the now infamous Blizzard of 2013 and another round of wintry weather is headed our way.

A strengthening coastal storm system is expected to impact thee area from Saturday into early Sunday, according to hazardous weather outlook from the National Weather Service.

'Widespread' & 'Significant'

The storm is predicted to bring with it "widespread" and "significant" precipitation.

"The precipitation is forecast to be mainly rain at the coast and a wintry mix of snow, sleet and freezing rain inland," the meteorologists stated in their report, with a "possibility for significant snowfall accumulations across Connecticut's "far interior zones."

They added, however, that there is "still quite a bit of uncertainty" for this storm, and where areas receive mainly snow or mainly rain — or a mix in between — will depend on how the storm eventually tracks.

The storm is expected to drop "heavy, wet snow" from Connecticut to southern New Hampshire. The storm will also bring strong winds which could cause downed trees and limbs and possibly power outages.

In Farmington, the snow is expected to start before 1 p.m., before changing to a mix of rain and snow through Sunday evening. Temperatures are expected to fluctuate around freezing.
