Here are the official snow totals for many communities across the region, courtesy of the National Weather Service:
This was the view along the Post Road in Fairfield Tuesday morning as the snow started to fall. The town's public and parochial schools were dismissed early.
The total snowfall at Sikorsky Memorial Airport in Stratford from Tuesday through early Wednesday morning was over a half-foot (6.7"), pushing the season's total snowfall to 22.8" which is less than seven inches from the average for the entire season. January's snow total (11.9") is more than double the normal (5.8") and well ahead of last year's pace (3.5") through the same date.
The following graph shows Sikorsky's snow totals from the three snowiest decades on record.
