I should note that the official snow total for Wallingford, CT, this year is 6.25 inches. Hopefully we can get to 10' before December is over, although it's not looking likely.

12/17/16 5.25 Snow beautifully fell, gracing the air with it’s picturesque ambiance! Hah, but yes indeed, this event was south/central CT’s first decent haul of the season. I officially measured 5.25 right after precip ended. Light freezing rain and a bit of sleet accounted for .25 of accumulation, 5 inches of snow. I took a nice walk around fields edged by woodsy trails near my house. I’ll upload the video above.

Date Accumulation Notes Picture 10/27/2016 .2 Today marked the first snow of the season. Light snow began falling around mid morning and lasted until about 12:30 PM. A slight accumulation built up on grassy surfaces and trees. The snow eventually changed to rain. 11/21/16 trace A cold front blew through the state on Saturday evening, and with it some white stuff that unfortunately did not accumulate or fall much in southern CT (nw hills got the jackpot). Overnight, a snow squall did reach the Wallingford area, and left traces of snow on mulched flower beds and vehicles. I’ll take what I can get. 12/5/16 .3

12/12/16 .5 A half inch of accumulation was measured in the early morning hours. The storm came in two batches, with the first quick moving low running into enough cold air to cause snow and account for accumulation. The second part of the storm brought rain. At 9AM it was raining steadily with clear roads and a temperature of 34.

Monday Morning Snow

12/5/16 .3 Snow broke out over southern Connecticut early this morning, right around 5AM. It quickly ended around 9 as light snow and rain showers. I measured about .3 inches on the grassy surfaces. Unlike the last few "ornamental" snowfalls, this one was able to pack some snow onto the trees, bringing the barren woods alive again, and making for a beautiful morning drive.
