Snowstorm update: Forecast puts Ridgefield in 'warning area'
Ridgefield isn't expected to get the most snowfall in the region during tomorrow's snowstorm, but the National Weather Service has labeled the interior part of Connecticut as a "warning area."
The high-end forecast for Wednesday's winter storm predicts the Ridgefield area could see up to 16 inches of snow. The low-end forecast projects five inches of snow in Danbury.
The heaviest precipitation falls from Wednesday morning into Wednesday evening, according to the National Weather Service's latest forecast.
Snowfall rate are projected at one to two inches per hour during the height of the storm.
"Hazardous travel expected Wednesday evening across most, if not all the tri-state," the report said.
The NWS update Tuesday at 5 p.m. stated the storm will bring winds ranging from 15 to 25 miles per hour, and warns residents of downed tree limbs and power lines — something Ridgefielders are all too familiar with after last Friday.
"Storm track and strength are still uncertain," the report added. "A storm track closer to the coast could bring more rain, especially for coastal areas, but higher snowfall amounts over the interior."
