previous discussion…


today changed into the primary day this month with a typical temperature that changed into actually colder than commonplace! At Bradley overseas Airport, the morning lows turned into 16 degrees, and the afternoon excessive changed into 31 degrees. The standard low for January eleventh is 17 levels, and the standard high is 34 degrees. The usual temperature through the first 11 days of January is 31.8 degrees, which is 5.6 degrees above usual. ample cloud cowl held the daylight temperature down these days.

THIS evening, TONIGHT…

The sky will develop into partly cloudy to clear tonight. The wind will stay easy with a vulnerable ridge of high power cresting over New England. subsequently, it might be a seasonably bloodless night with lows in the teens and lower 20s faraway from the coast.

THE relaxation OF THIS WEEK…

It has now more than per week due to the fact that we had any precipitation to communicate of. The remaining snow fall was early in the morning on Monday, January 4th! The quiet weather will continue for a number of more days, doubtless through the end of the week. this is enormously peculiar for January.

A vulnerable storm will slip out to sea neatly to the south of recent England day after today. so one can leave us with a partly sunny day with highs within the higher 30s and reduce 40s. There will be a light-weight northwesterly breeze.

Wednesday can be partly sunny and a little milder. Morning lows will range from 15-25, and afternoon highs will range from forty-forty five.

Thursday should be partly to commonly sunny and milder nevertheless. Morning lows can be within the 20s, and highs should be in the 40s.

Temperatures will upward thrust neatly into the 40s on Friday regardless of considerable cloud cowl. We are expecting our climate to stay dry in the course of the daytime hours, then there can be a rising possibility for rain Friday evening. That’s when a cold front will approach Southern New England together with a number of waves of low power.


Rain appears doubtless Saturday morning. Rain may also combine with or in short conclusion as snow before ending Saturday afternoon. We may also see some partial clearing later in the day, and a northwesterly breeze will toughen on the heels of the front. Highs Saturday will range from 40-45.

Saturday nighttime should still be partly cloudy, blustery and chilly with lows within the 20s.

Sunday might be partly sunny, breezy and a bit colder than Saturday. Highs could be in the 30s to probably close 40.


A vulnerable coastal storm may deliver a duration of gentle snow on Monday. it can be seasonably bloodless with highs in the 30s.

December went into the list books as a mild and wet month with above regular snowstorm. The typical temperature for the enhanced Hartford enviornment became 33.7 levels, which is 2.1 levels above average. total precipitation became 5.18”, which is 1.ninety four” above common. total snowstorm became 13.3”, which is 5.5” above general.

There was one named iciness storm, iciness Storm Bailey. It started on the night of December 16th and it ended around noon on the 17th. blizzard ranged from 8” to 16.5”.

a powerful storm had a big impact on the state on Christmas Day! It was a wet, heat and windy December twenty fifth across Connecticut! With 2.12” of rain at Bradley Airport, the place legit facts are maintained for the Hartford enviornment, Christmas 2020 went down as the wettest on the grounds that statistics were saved (they go returned to 1905!). The prior listing turned into 1.39” from Christmas 1979. moreover, temperatures have been especially gentle. The high at Bradley turned into 63°, simply 1° shy of the December twenty fifth listing that changed into set in 1964! Rainfall totals ranged from 1.5 to four”. Simsbury hit the jackpot with three.94 inches! Heavy rain, in tandem with snow melt, resulted in bad drainage, basement and river flooding. The wind was also a large headline with this storm as gusts generally ranged from 50-60 mph. This ended in round 35,000 vigor outages throughout the state. The peak gust came in from Greenwich, at 71 mph!


In January, the average excessive is 35 levels on the 1st and the thirty first. through January seventh, the ordinary high dips to 34 degrees and it is still 34 levels during the 23rd. The common low is nineteen levels on the first, and 18 degrees the thirty first. The average low dips to 17 levels on the 9th and it is still 17 levels throughout the twenty first. the primary month of the yr is additionally our of the 12 months. common snow fall for January is 12.3”. These statistics are for the more desirable Hartford area. all the way through the month of January, we gain 49 minutes of daylight hours.

The listing excessive for January is seventy two levels. It became set on January 6, 2007. The checklist low is 26 below zero, set on January 22, 1961. The snowiest January on record become in 2011 when there became a grand total of 54.3” of snow! it truly is the all-time snowiest month on record for the improved Hartford area!


Channel three has had a virtually 50-12 months legacy of naming iciness storms; you may also be aware Blizzard Larry, the Blizzard of ’seventy eight, the huge ice storm of December 1973 named Felix, Storm Alfred in late October of 2011 and Blizzard Charlotte in 2013. Alfred’s heavy, moist snow caused a listing power outage in Connecticut and Blizzard Charlotte dumped as much as forty” of snow on the state. all of it began in 1971 with Channel 3 and the travelers climate provider.

Why did we decide to identify storms so long ago? as a result of americans simply bear in mind names, mainly the ones which have been connected to Connecticut’s largest storms! occasionally, we get criticized for naming wintry weather storms, but with the aid of a long way most of our viewers love the culture and discover it enjoyable! We also have to meet certain standards for a storm to be named. We ought to be forecasting at the least 6” of snow for many of the state and/or at least ½” of ice accretion that could take place throughout an ice storm.

This wintry weather, the theme is pet names, which is an extension of ultimate winter’s theme. We only had 1 named storm closing iciness, and that turned into winter Storm Abel. So, we decided to birth the place we left off. That’s why the primary name on this wintry weather’s listing is Bailey, named after a horse.

here is a list of this winter’s names: Bailey (horse), Cooper (dog), Digger (hedgehog), Echo (Iguana), Finnegan (goat), Gertie (goose), Hobbes (dog), Izzy (cat), Jabba (dog), Kiana (dog), Luna (pig), Maverick (dog), Nellie (dog), Ozzy (horse), Peepers (chook), Queue (dog), Roscoe (dog), Shay (dog), Thor (cat), Uma (cat), Viola (dog), Willow (dog & bunny), Xanthe (dog), Yarko (dog), and Zeke (Iguana). If we make it that some distance down the listing, we are in for huge hindrance!!!

a number of years in the past, a national community determined to identify iciness storms on a countrywide scale. Who can blame any one from the use of a very good thought? youngsters there may be some confusion due to this fact, we are proud of our way of life this is “Connecticut-headquartered!”
