Brace yourselves, here’s the latest from our Meteorologist Kevin Arnone.

Lets get right down to business and skip all theweather model talk.

Snow will begin 2-4 a.m. Thursday morning.   Flurries possible as early as midnight. By the time most of us wake up 7-9 a.m. expect 2-4 inches on the ground.

As the storm center approaches closer during the afternoon on Thursday warmer air will come with it.

The SE corner of the State and possibly parts of the immediate shoreline will turn over to a mix; this is because the winds will be coming off the Atlantic Ocean and warm up the surface.

The exact timing of this is still up in the air but a rough estimate will be between 12-5 p.m. By the time the switch over occurs most of the state will have 3-6 inches on the ground exception being SE CT, 2-4 for you guys.

The rain/snow line will try and push NW during the afternoon, but (AS OF NOW) I believe the cold air will win out for the rest of the state and stay as an all snow event.

I am expecting a break in the action from 5-8 p.m., very light precip or nothing at all in some locations.  Even though some of us may switch over to a mix briefly, a second burst of snow 8-10 p.m. we are all back to snow again for the remainder of the storm.

An additional 3-6 inches will fall in this second burst for inland areas.  Shore and SE CT will be towards the lower end of that!

Snow will continue through the night and end 4-7 a.m. Friday morning.

The chance of flurries and blowing snow will continue through Friday morning.  I expect schools to be closed both Thursday and Friday!

I also want to point out that this is a prettypowerful storm; winds gusts will be between 35-45 MPH.  Also add on the fact that the snow will be very heavy.  It could be a recipe for many power outages.

The weather map as of 11 a.m. today.

Meteorologist Kevin Arnone is updating information regarding Hurricane Sandy as it comes in. Keep checking back for the latest news by clicking on the “WEATHER” tab at the top of our page throughout the day.

Updates are in RED

Category 1 Storm moving NW at 12 mph just north of the Bahamas warm water. Current sustained winds at 80 mph and gusts of 90 mph and pressure at 968 mb.

Some Weather Model Talk:

The European Computer model or “ECMWF” which has been the most consistent over the past few days concerning Sandy hasn’t changed much from the 12z run. As of the latest run 00Z Friday now has the strong storm first making landfall south of Delaware, worst weather early Monday and throughout the afternoon.  Still a very ugly situation for CT but not the worst case.  The GFS Computer model, which has been all over the place concerning Sandy, now is beginning to shape up. Earlier in the week the GFS had Sandy way out to see but the latest 00z run brings the center of the storm around the NY/CT boarder.  Worst weather would be Tuesday into Tuesday Night. Sandy is a well-organized, big and strong CAT 1 storm right now which is forecasted consistently by both models to hold its strength up the eastern seaboard. As it moves north Sandy will grow in size. Getting caught up in the category of a hurricane is sometimes a waste of time in my eyes because there are so many other factors that go in to the actual strength of the storm other then wind. Example being size and how fast it’s moving as well as just the dynamics of the storm. For what it’s worth I also have been studying the NOGAPS Model which is the United States Navy Model.  This one is along the same lines as the ECMWF Model.  The latest 00Z Friday NAM model is beginning to agree with the GFS.
