Southwestern Connecticut residents can expect more snow to fall. The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for snow and ice, in effect from midnight Tuesday to 6 p.m. Wednesday.
Stamford Mayor Martin's office says the city's emergency operations center is monitoring the storm at this time, with city departments ready to respond. In advance of the storm, the city's operations department has delayed garbage and recycling pickup by one day.
The forecast calls for snow late Tuesday through Wednesday morning; changing to sleet and freezing rain later Wednesday. Accumulations of four to eight inches of snow are predicted along with about a tenth of an inch of ice. Visibility is predicted at approximately one quarter to one half mile and snow and ice on roads will create hazardous travel.
The city is reminding residents of a city ordinance which mandates removal of snow and ice on sidewalks in front of homes and businesses within 12 hours of the ceasing snow fall.
By state law, snow and ice is mandated to be removed from cars, trucks and commercial vehicles because of the dangers of 'ice missiles.'
Snow and potential icing may affect Connecticut Light and Power's distribution system. CL&P expects minimal electric system impacts as a result of the storm.
