A Winter Storm Warning has just been issued for Stratford, as well as much of the rest of the region — with snowfall totals with tomorrow's storm expected to range from 6 to 10 inches here along the shoreline.
The National Weather Service's warning will go into effect at noon on Tuesday and run through to early Wednesday morning.
"Snowfall will begin late Tuesday morning and will continue through Tuesday night, tapering off early Wednesday morning," the weather service meteorologists state in their warning report. "The heaviest snowfall will occur Tuesday afternoon and evening."
The periods of heavy snow will significantly reduce visibility, making travel on the slick roads even more difficult.
The storm's arrival Tuesday will also usher bitterly cold air in the area, along with wind gusts of up to 35 miles per hour. Wind chills are expected to reach as low as -10 degrees by late Tuesday night.
