Strong Winds Expected Through Thursday Morning

 

The National Weather Services warns that Connecticut could be hit with winds clocking in at 25 mph and gusts up 50 mph from today’s nor’easter.

The wind advisory is in effect until 4 a.m. on Thursday, and the strength of the wind is capable of downing trees and power lines. There are scattered outages throughout the state, as some people are still without power from Tropical Storm Sandy last week. 

Total snowfall could reach up to four inches away from the coast.

Some coastal municipalities, such as Greenwich and Milford, have urged residents living nearing the Long Island Sound to evacuate, as the high tide could lead to flooding.
