Surprise Snow!

Ok, we weren't expecting this either!

Following a spring-like day where temperatures reached above 40 degrees yesterday, we awoke to find snow! Branford Schools are closed today. 

The National Weather Service forecasts periods of rain, snow, and sleet, becoming all rain after noon for Branford today. Highs are expected near 40 degrees. Chance of precipitation is 100 percent with daytime snow and sleet accumulation of less than one inch possible. 

While the white stuff lasts, grab your camera and shoot the view from your frontdoor! This could be (fingers crossed) the last snow of this winter! 

Weather Look Ahead:

Tonight: Showers, mainly before midnight. Low around 35. North wind between 8 and 18 mph, with gusts as high as 45 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New rainfall amounts between a quarter and half of an inch possible. 

Saturday: Partly sunny, with a high near 43. Breezy, with a west wind between 21 and 24 mph, with gusts as high as 48 mph. 

Saturday Night: Mostly cloudy during the early evening, then gradual clearing, with a low around 26. West wind between 13 and 18 mph, with gusts as high as 34 mph. 

Sunday: Sunny, with a high near 41. Northwest wind between 10 and 14 mph.

How many inches of snow fell in Branford?

Hey Martha, I am not sure... I'd venture to say between 2 and 6... I'm trying to find a local total. Believe it or not, it's not that easy to find.
