Blizzard Warning Issued for Enfield, Suffield

A powerful winter storm is expected to hammer Enfield, Suffield and much of the rest of the region — bringing with it heavy snow, high winds and at times white out conditions — from Friday into Saturday afternoon.

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning for Enfield and Suffield, as a powerful winter storm is expected to affect the region starting early Friday and lasting into Saturday morning.

The blizzard warning will be in effect from Friday morning and continue through to Saturday afternoon.

The storm system will bring with it heavy snow, sleet and damaging winds — with gusts blowing up in excess of 60 miles per hour.

Total accumulations could be up to three feet of snow, along with possible traces of ice, according to the National Weather Service.

The high winds and heavy snow is expected to make for at times white out conditions, with visibility reduced to less than a quarter of a mile.

"The heavy snow will make for dangers driving conditions," the weather service meteorologists report in their alert. "In addition, the heavy snow and strong winds will result in blizzard conditions, bringing down some tree limbs and causing scattered power outages."
