Who’s In The Mood For Snow?

Here are a couple of early weather forecasts for the mid-week snowstorm.

First, from Kevin Arnone, our friend and trusted meteorologist from exactweathernow

As one Nor’easter departs, another approaches from the west. Who turned Winter back on? The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Watch for the entire state of Connecticut which will likely be updated to a Winter Storm Warning over the next 24 hours.

Our weather computer models are in good agreement with another storm to move in as early as Wednesday morning and last into Thursday morning. However, this one will be a little different than the last. The wind will not be as strong, coastal flooding will not be as big as an issue and heavy rain won’t be an issue. That all sounds great of course but there’s more cold air to tap into, which means more snow.

I’m expecting 25-35+ MPH gusts during the peak of the storm (Wednesday late afternoon into the evening) and tides to run a little higher than normal but nothing like what we just saw.

Flakes will start to fly as early as Wednesday morning, the heaviest of the snow falls during the late afternoon into the evening. Snowfall rates over an inch an hour are possible, especially in Northern CT. Snow tapers off before sunrise on Thursday.

An early call for snowfall totals is 4 to 8 inches statewide with a little less in SE CT and along the shoreline too because of mixing with rain. Early dismissals from school are likely Wednesday with cancellations Thursday.

And here’s some additional information from the National Weather Service

Heaviest snow expected Wednesday afternoon into early Thursday morning. The Wednesday evening rush hour is expected to be significantly impacted where precipitation is falling as heavy snow.

Travel could be very difficult where precipitation remains heavy snow with the potential for 2 to 3 inch per hour snowfall rates. Significant reductions in visibility are possible.

This will be a wet snow, especially just northwest of the rain/snow line which may result in downed trees and scattered power outages.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS: A Winter Storm Watch means there is potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel. Continue to monitor the latest forecasts.

When Orange Live went online 6 years ago, a young man named Kevin Arnone approached us offering to provide weather coverage.

An Amity graduate, Kevin was so good and incredibly accurate for his young age, that we couldn’t resist.

The partnership worked well for a long time, we linked the weather tab to Kevin’s personal page.

But as his name earned recognition, the consistency of his posts on that site slowed down and he dedicated his time getting noticed by television stations and landed his dream job with WTNH 8.

Since we first met him, Kevin married the love of his life, got two dogs, and this week he left Channel 8 when his contract expired and he started a new amazing weather website ExactWeatherNow.com.

We’ve called Kevin “our” weatherman for 6 years and we hope that YOU will do the same.

Check out his new website by clicking the link above or anytime that you are on Orange Live, click the Weather Tab for a direct link to his new site.

“Join” Kevin’s team and if you appreciate his work, click on the Donate button to help support his efforts.

Good Luck Kevin!

The Orange Independence Day Extravaganza presented by the Orange Town News was a huge success Sunday night. The weather was a little humid, but the Eagles Tribute Band “Hotel California” got rave reviews from the audience and the fireworks also were well received.

Our meteorologist Kevin Arnone captured a unique view of the fireworks with his drone (THIS IS THE FULL VIDEO) and shared them with Orange Live. THANKS KEVIN! (I still can’t get my drone to hover for more than a couple of seconds)

Kevin Arnone

When Orange Live opened for business in May 2012, Kevin Arnone joined us as our weather forecaster.

His predictions were always incredibly accurate and he gained quite a following.

Since, Kevin realized his lifelong dream and became affiliated with WTNH-8, but had to give up his own site since it was a conflict of interest.

Our Weather Tab at the top of the page was linked to his website, which he hasn’t updated in a very long time. So we changed the link to his Weather Facebook page, which is nearly always up-to-date.

At times like this when snowstorms, high winds and other hazardous weather are threatening the area, it’s nice to know that you can access a trusted meteorologist with just the click of a tab here on Orange Live.

We welcome Kevin’s updates back to our site and we’re proud to share this Orange native’s expertise with YOU.

Although they don’t give him much face time, you can see Kevin’s weather stories on WXEdge.
