As Ledyard rebounds from the now infamous Blizzard of 2013, another round of wintry weather is headed our way.
'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 area's receive mainly snow or mainly rain — or a mix in between — will depend on how the storm eventually tracks.
