FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. — A major snowstorm could dump a half-foot or more of snow across Fairfield County later this week, the National Weather Service and accuweather.com say.

The storm is expected to arrive late Friday evening or early Saturday morning and will last through much of the day Saturday, according to multiple predictions.

What would be the first significant snowstorm of the season also has the potential of bringing much more snow than 6 inches of the white stuff, according to AccuWeather.com.

"If the storm develops to its full potential and takes a track just off the mid-Atlantic and New England coasts, then a blizzard can unfold," AccuWeather said. "The storm could shut down highways and perhaps cause airports to close."

The National Weather Service issued a Hazardous Weather Outlook on Monday warning of the possibility of a major storm.

The weather service's current forecast predicts any snow would start after 1 a.m. Saturday with the chance of snow at 60 percent for Saturday.

There are still many possible changes in the track of the storm that could result in changes to the early projections.
