The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Storm Warning for Northern Connecticut, describing a "significant" storm that will deliver "a period of heavy snow followed by sleet, freezing rain and then all rain" in Avon on Monday night into Tuesday.
"The final snowfall totals will be determined by the timing of the transition from all snow to mixed precipitation," the weather service said. "This will result in treacherous travel conditions later tonight into at least Tuesday morning. There will be a high impact on the Tuesday morning commute across much of interior Southern New England."
Snow accumulations could be from 4 to 8 inches, along with a coating of ice, across Northern Connecticut, the weather service said. Strong winds are predicted as well.
The Winter Storm Warning is in effect from 9 p.m. Monday to 11 a.m. Tuesday.
This winter has been marked by a series of significant storms causing school closures and delays, road closures, and disruptions to business.
Five of the seven school cancellations Avon has experienced so far will be made up at the end of the year, pushing the last day of school to June 27. The other two will come out of April Vacation on April 18 and 19.
