Winter storm brings snow, rain, and wind across Connecticut

Snow turns to slush as the temps rise and precipitation switches over to rain.

CONNECTICUT, USA — A winter storm is moving through the state, bringing a variety of weather conditions, including snow, rain, winds and possible coastal flooding.

With gusts of up to 30 mph, power outages are a concern. The storm moved up from the Southeast, hitting the Carolinas with snow. 

Tides are expected to be two feet above normal around mid-morning. 

In Norfolk, Jon Barbigalo, PIO for the fire department said, "Everything is snow or slush. And with the rain coming, it's only going to make things much more sloppy and difficult to drive."

In Milford, one resident told FOX61, she thought what she had seen so far was fairly mild, but that it would cause some problems for some homeowners. 

One resident of Groton was thankful she has a newer home so it would have fewer flooding issues than her neighbors with older homes. 

As of 12:30 pm, here's a look at outages throughout the state:
