The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a hazardous weather outlook for Windsor, saying heavy snow is heading toward town, accompanied by a fair share of rain.

According to NWS, a strong coastal storm is scheduled to sweep through the area, bringing significant weather late Saturday through Sunday.

The storm is still three days from hitting the region, making for plenty of uncertainty, NWS reports; however, "the threat for a period of heavy snow is possible across much of the reason."
