More snow is on the way, with between 6 and 12 inches expected in the tri-state area.

Connecticut officials are preparing as more snow approaches.

The threat of another heavy snowstorm has Connecticut residents ready to get out their shovels for the third time in recent weeks: Forecasters are predicting 10-12 inches of snow in most of the state Wednesday, with the first flakes falling overnight and continuing to mid-afternoon.

Connecticut transportation officials say they are preparing hundreds of plows for sanding and salting duties, and Governor Dannel P. Malloy and officials from several state agencies also are taking with municipal leaders about preparations.

Much of Connecticut experienced a major snow blast two days after Christmas as snow blanketed the East Coast. Many Connecticut residents, especially those in western towns, also faced more snow late Friday night.
