From Snow to Rain, What's Going on Now?

Between the weather averaging well below freezing, and considerable amounts of snow being dumped across the state. To heavy rain, and unseasonably warm weather later on in the week, Can Connecticut just make up its mind for once?By Preston Hazard

  So, our December starts out with days topping off at unseasonably low temperatures, then dropping off a substantial amount of snow across the state. A little extream, but nothing necessarily out of the ordinary for late fall/winter time in Connecticut. But this is where it starts to get weird. As early as Monday of next week, we could top off at nearly sixty degrees in Hartford. 
  Granted that should only last two days before it becomes more "wintery" with the possibility of snow on Wednesday. I know I'll be enjoying a much-needed reprieve from the "sub-zero" temperature.

Snow Continues to Fall on Northern Connecticut.

Snow has been falling since around 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon.  Road conditions range from slushy on back roads, while major routes and highways, such as Route 8 south, are perfectly clear.By Preston Hazard December 1st, 2019 2:00 pm EST
 When I woke up this morning, I wasn't sure what to expect as far as road conditions. After I jumped in my car and headed to my usual breakfast spot (which is all back roads from my house, as well as the studio) I was hit with an overwhelming beauty of the snow-covered trees, ice caked cars, and rare quietness, that only seems to happen after a snow storm. Amazingly, apart from some minor road slush, and patches of ice, the roads weren't that bad. After breakfast, I drove down to the newsroom, inside the Pow Animation Studio, located in the northwest corridor of Connecticut, and the road conditions remained the same. After working on something for a while, I began to wonder what the road conditions were like on the more main roads that su…

Northest Connecticut to be Hit by First Winter Storm

Northwest Connecticut could get up to thirteen inches of snow by tomorrow afternoon.By Preston Hazard

  According to data provided by The Weather Channel, a plowable amount of snow will be landing over the next two days. Not only will this be our first winter storm of the season, but it will also be one of the largest storms we've had in a year.
  As you can see from the above picture, snow is already blanketing the ground, and even beginning to cover the roads. To test the conditions, I went for a drive and concluded that my car maintained full traction, and most people seemed to be as well. I did, however, see an SUV overturned on Route 8 north, however, I don't believe that had anything to do with the traction of the road.

Lewis Mills Playing Final Football Game, and Cade is Out.

Its Lewis Mills final game and Cade is out for obvious reasons...By Preston Hazard
November 21st, 20195:45 pm EST   I'm here at Dillon Stadium in Hartford Connecticut, where the Lewis Mills Spartans are less then half an hour from playing their last game of the season.   I spoke to Lewis Mills head coach, John Oko about the team's goal for the game.   "Just keep the ball out of the endzone. We have a really good defense, so let's keep the ball out of the endzone."

What's in store for Tomorrow's Game.

November 20th, 20194:00 pm EST While the Lewis S. Mills football season is winding down for the year, the team isn't ready to throw in the towel just yet.
 We attempted to interview the school's varsity coach, John Oko, but the team had just begun the day's practice, and he was unable to comment on his hopes for tomorrows ending results. None the less, I was able to talk to a few of the players, and the overwhelming response from them is that they hope to end the season with the best game possible.
 Tomorrow's game will take place at Dillon Stadium in Hartford Connecticut, and will be against Capital Preparatory Magnet School, whose record is 2-7. 
 The team's official Twitter profile has yet to comment on tomorrow's game.

While it's still far away, there is a small chance that we could be seeing snow on our front lawn this weekend when we wake up. For many of us, it's the answer to the past week of uncertain, overcast, and often freezing temperatures.
