Coastal Flooding and High Wind Alerts for New London County; Winter Weather Advisory in Effect for Hartford, Tolland and Windham Counties

The storm is expected to drop snow and ice before turning to rain.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for Hartford, Tolland and Windham counties, starting at 7 p.m. tonight. A high wind warning has been issued for New London County starting at 4 p.m. today until 6 a.m. tomorrow. A coastal flood advisory will be in effect from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. Thursday. 

Snow and ice are expected in the Hartford, Tolland and Windham area, which could make travel conditions hazardous later today, though accumulations are not expected to exceed 6 inches and would more likely be 2 to 4 inches in central and northern Connecticut.

"Any snow or ice would make driving and walking difficult," the National Weather Service reported on Wednesday morning. "When temperatures are below freezing, motorists need to be especially careful on bridges and overpasses where slippery spots can easily develop."

Those traveling for the holiday should be extremely cautious if heading north. Accumulations in Massachusetts and Northern New England could be significantly more — up to 16 inches in spots — the weather service said.
