Veteran weatherman says storm is unprecedented

Brad Field, the meteorologist at NBC 30, WVIT in Hartford, said that the National Weather Service now predicts that 80 percent of the state will receive at least a foot of snow.

“I can’t remember if I’ve ever seen that before,” Field said.

The storm that’s coming is unusually widespread, agreed Kevin Nursick of the state DOT. “That’s what’s different here, the size of the area affected.”
