As of Sunday night, the National Weather Service (NOAA) has predicted a “chance” of snow on Monday and is saying snow is “likely” for Branford on Tuesday. Accumulation is expected to be low, according to NOAA although the Weather Channel is predicting 1 to 2 inches for Branford with a 70 percent chance of snow on Tuesday.
For coastal Connecticut, NOAA stated that temperatures are going to be “right on the boarder of a rain/snow mix event.” The fast-moving storm looks like it will start as a mix, transitioning to rain on Tuesday they stated, and end as a mix on Tuesday night. If a heavier band of precipitation sets up, NOAA said Branford could see a brief period of snow but accumulation will only be about one half inch.
