Not again — winter storm warning in effect beginning Monday night through Tuesday
Heavy snow, with accumulations of four to seven inches, are expected, according to the National Weather Service.
A heavy snowstorm hit the area last Wednesday, knocking down trees and power lines and leaving more than 1,400 Ridgefield Eversource customers without power. There were a few customers remaining without power on Saturday afternoon. Power is now completely restored.
This storm will be the third storm to hit the region in 10 days.
Schools in Ridgefield were canceled due to weather on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. The district has cancelled school 10 times already this year — ranging from a storm that struck Ridgefield in late October to the latest batch of winter weather.
