Really weird.

Geoff Fox (on his blog) seems to think a lot of rain will mix in for southern CT, and Hartford will only get 6-8" out of this.

Then I read Cams NWS map and it's a bit mind boggling.

WFSB has named the storm Charlotte. I think they name most if not all significant snowstorms.

Winter storm watches posted in advance of 'Charlotte' - WFSB 3 Connecticut
