Hartford, Connecticut is off to its snowiest start to a winter season on record.

After 3.0 inches of snow on Wednesday morning, Hartford’s official weather observation site at Bradley International Airport has now recorded 19.5 inches of snow so far this season. That’s the most snow Hartford has seen through December 11th, and nearly five times above the season-to-date average snowfall of 4.0 inches.

While no snow is in the immediate forecast, an unsettled Friday night and Saturday is in store for much of Connecticut, including Hartford. An inch or two of rain is possible in Hartford, mainly on Saturday. Coupled with high temperatures in the 50s, rapid snowmelt and heavy rain could combine to create some flooding in the region on Saturday.

According to Chris, it's been a love affair ever since, from teaching himself how to read forecast models at age 12, to landing at WeatherNation. Growing up in Greenwich, Connecticut, he started to go after his lifelong drea... Load Morem of becoming a meteorologist by predicting whether or not there would be snow days - turning him into Greenwich High School's "defacto weatherman". He turned that snow day-predicting website into a front page story a local newspaper, which in turn earned him a look at WABC-TV in New York, where Chris did the weather live on-air at the age of 16. He attended Boston University, where he continued being a "weather nerd", performing weather updates on the campus radio and TV stations, and doing the daily forecasts for the student newspaper. Following his studies at BU, Chris worked at Mile High Sports and ESPN Denver for four years while pursuing his certification in Broadcast Meteorology from Mississippi State University. Chris is a huge sports fan, rooting for the Rockies, Nuggets, Broncos, Avalanche and UConn. He frequently find links between sports and weather, including an investigative analysis he did in 2013, finding trends between Peyton Manning's play and game time temperature (he doesn't like the cold). Chris also enjoys running, playing any sport, socializing and periodically overeating at all-you-can-eat buffets.
