Winter Storm Watch Update

The National Weather Service in Upton, N.Y. has issued an updated winter storm watch for Westport and area in effect from Sunday evening through Monday afternoon.

Snow, possibly mixed with sleet, will develop Sunday evening, an advisory said. A complete changeover to snow is expected by midnight with the
snow falling heavily at times through Monday morning.

The snow will become light by afternoon before ending late in the day. There is the potential for 4 to 8 inches of snow across the tri-state by the time the snow comes to an end. At this time, the highest amounts look to be across Connecticut and Long Island.

There is still some uncertainty as to the exact timing, strength, and track of this low so expect the forecast to change somewhat as details become clearer as the storm draws close.

Curran Cadillac Closing After All

By Dave Matlow

UPDATE A month after the president of the Curran Cadillac Pontiac GMC auto dealership on Westport’s Post Road East denied the business was closing, today he said it was indeed shutting down.WestportNow.com Image

“It saddens me to say that after 40 plus years in Westport, we will be closing today,” Jim Curran said in an e-mail message to WestportNow. “We are actively pursuing another automotive franchise to replace our GM store, but as of right now nothing yet.”

WestportNow carried a story on Jan. 25 quoting the Curran Cadillac sales manager as saying that the dealership, which has been in operation at 561 Post Road East since 1964, would be closing its doors at the end of January due to the difficult economic times. (See WestportNow Jan. 25, 2009)

But Curran subsequently sent an e-mail message to WestportNow saying: “Curran Cadillac is not closing. We are laying off additional employees by the end of this month, but we will be open for service and sales.” (See WestportNow Jan. 26, 2009)
