[ARCHIVED] Storm Alert

Weather Alert

Good afternoon, this First Selectwoman Peggy Lyons with an important emergency storm alert.

A major winter storm is forecast to impact our area starting tonight and lasting until Tuesday evening.  The current forecast is estimating light snow to start late this evening and spread slowly from southwest to northeast across the state between 11:00 PM and 4:00 AM.  The snow is expected to remain light overnight with low temperatures in the teens. By late Monday morning, we anticipate moderate to heavy snowfall with rates approaching 1” per hour.  By Monday afternoon, heavy snow is expected with highs in the upper 20’s and may continue during the evening, with a possible change over to a mix of snow, sleet and rain in our area. Total snow accumulations are currently forecast to be in the range of 8” – 12” in southeastern Connecticut.

We are also expecting by late afternoon tomorrow strong northeastern winds which could gust up to 55 MPH. These may cause whiteout conditions and some scattered power outages.  We strongly urge residents to stay off the roads.  Minor coastal flooding is also possible during high tide around 1:00 PM on Monday in western Long Island Sound. 

Due to forecasted high winds, it is important that all residents take the time now to secure loose items in your yard that have potential to be thrown around by wind or rising water, and prepare for power outages and tree damage, potentially for an extended period of time.

Please note that all Town facilities will be closed tomorrow, but all Town departments will be working remotely during normal business hours.  I also want to remind residents that there is no overnight parking on any state or town roads in order to keep the streets cleared for plowing.   

Please take the time now to prepare for this major winter storm.

Stay safe Madison. Thank you.
