A winter storm is approaching the region with the potential to drop more than a foot of snow.
Winter storm warnings and watches are in effect for the entire region, with the storm promising to make travel messy on the first work day of the new year.
The worst of the storm is expected to hit later on Thursday with bitterly cold temperatures. Parts of Connecticut could see 10 inches of snow before the storm moves on. Already, light snow is falling across much of the region with wind chills hovering around 10-above.
The region is still busy digging out from the snowstorm that hit overnight. Slick roads have caused traffic deaths and temperatures are expected to sink below zero. In Connecticut, people seem more bothered by the cold than the snow.
