As Ledyard rebounds from the now infamous Blizzard of 2013, another round of wintry weather is headed our way.

A strengthening coastal storm system is expected to impact thee area from Saturday into early Sunday, according to hazardous weather report from the National Weather Service.

'Widespread' & 'Significant'

They added, however, that there is "still quite a bit of uncertainty" for this storm, and where area's receive mainly snow or mainly rain — or a mix in between — will depend on how the storm eventually tracks.
