Winter Weather Advisory Issued

The National Weather Service in Upton, N.Y. has issued a winter weather advisory for Westport and area for snow which is in effect from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday.

Snow will begin early Wednesday morning and continue through the day Wednesday, the advisory said. The snow will taper off late in the afternoon.

Winds will increase through the day and will result in blowing snow reducing visibilities and causing near whiteout conditions into the evening, the advisory said. Total snow accumulation of 2 to 5 inches is expected with higher amounts over the higher terrain.

A Winter Weather Advisory means that periods of snow, sleet or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties.

Bridgeport to Norwalk Car Chase Ends in Westport

UPDATE A 19-year-old Branford man led police on a multi-town high speed car chase early today, including a wrong way I-95 ride, that ended on Westport’s Post Road West.

No one was injured in the chase that came to a halt near Kings Highway South at about 2:50 a.m. The chase ended when the car ran over “stop sticks” laid down by a Fairfield officer which punctured several of its tires.

The male driver, later identified as Douglas Yamada, initially was spotted by state police in Fairfield shortly after 2 a.m. He then crossed into Bridgeport before heading south on I-95. He apparently was wanted on motor vehicle charges.

In Norwalk, he did a U-turn on I-95 and headed north in the southbound lanes, eventually getting off at Exit 18 in Westport. Police chased him through Westport along the Post Road back into Norwalk.
