Significant storm could be headed toward SW Conn.

A storm brewing in the Mid Atlantic could make things interesting here in a few days.

A lot can happen before Wednesday and Thursday, when the storm is expect to hit, but there’s apparently enough concern about the storm that the National Weather Service issued a briefing Monday afternoon.

Projection models show two scenarios unfolding. Either the storm will move off the Mid Atlantic coast and blow out to sea, or it will move off the coast and then turn toward New York and Connecticut.

If the latter happens, things could get bad. According to the NWS, potential impacts include heavy wet snow, moderate coastal flooding and high winds that could cause scattered outages.

Quincy Vagell, a meteorologist for WTNH, tweeted the storm could bring up to 16 inches of snow to Southwestern Connecticut and even more to the northeastern part of the state.

Again, a lot can change between now and then. We’ll keep you posted.
