First Alert: Another Nor'easter Heads Toward Connecticut



    Evening Forecast March 10 2018

    (Published Saturday, March 10, 2018)

    The NBC Connecticut meteorologists have issued a First Alert for a third nor'easter in just as many weeks.

    The European Ensemble forecast below shows the wide spread of possible outcomes for the storm's location late Monday into Tuesday.

    Here's a breakdown of three possible scenarios.

    Fringe effects: Where the storm comes close enough to bring some snow - likely a few inches across the state.

    Closer track: This would bring a storm similar to Wednesday, with heavy wet snow for some, and rain and mixing along the shoreline.

    A total miss: We don't see any issues from the storm.

    There is still a lot of uncertainty with the track of this storm, but as of Saturday it looks like the most likely scenario will be the fringe effects, with a few inches of snow statewide. However, there is still the chance of the track shifting closer, hitting us with another significant storm.

    A total miss is the least likely scenario. 

    NBC Connecticut will continue to monitor the forecast. Check back for updates.
