A nor'easter developing along the mid-Atlantic is forecast to hit our area Wednesday morning — exactly how bad it will be is still up in the air, though.
With the storm expected to intensify as it slowly tracks east, the National Weather Service today issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook for northern and southern New London County, along with Fairfield, New Haven and Middlesex counties in Connecticut.
"Forecast uncertainty surrounds the exact details of how this storm will evolve," the weather service reports, "but the potential exists for several inches of snow...and strong winds...with gusts between 40 and 50 mph."
