Nor’easter in Connecticut | How much snow has fallen so far?

“Some towns may receive significant snowfall total, while others may receive a fraction of that around or maybe even just rain."

HARTFORD, Conn — A winter storm with heavy, wet snow led to hundreds of school closings, canceled flights, and thousands of power outages across parts of Connecticut on Tuesday morning.

Gov. Ned Lamont, who ordered all executive branch state office buildings closed during the nor’easter, called the storm a “unique winter storm” that will see big differences in snowfall depending on where people live.

“Some towns may receive significant snowfall total, while others may receive a fraction of that around or maybe even just rain,” he said.

So how much snow has fallen so far?

According to the National Weather Service, upwards of 11 inches of snow have been recorded in Granby and Hartland – with more coming down throughout the day. Winstead has seen more than 7 inches.

Most of the snow has concentrated north of Interstate 84 and in the northeast and northwest hills.
