Winter Weather Advisory Issued for Saturday in Manchester

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for northern Connecticut and parts of western Massachusetts Saturday due to a storm moving up the Eastern Seaboard that is expected to hit the area sometime tomorrow morning.

The storm, which is expected to hit Connecticut around 10 a.m. Saturday morning and linger into Sunday, could drop an estimated three to five inches of snow over that period, according to the National Weather Service. 

"A winter weather advisory is issued when snow and/or ice is forecast to develop in the affected areas," the National Weather Service said. 

In addition to the snow, the weather service says the storm could bring temperatures in the mid-20s, winds gusts up to 25 miles per hour, poor visibility at times and treacherous driving conditions.
