HARTFORD (CBS Connecticut) — Briefing the state on weather conditions at noon Friday at the State Armory,  Governor Malloy says the snowfall was about what was expected.  He says now the concern is the extreme cold and a wind chill forecast as low as 25 below.

The governor says the State Severe Weather Protocol remains in effect,  allowing outreach to ensure those in need of shelter are housed inside.  The governor says shelters in the state were operating at 120% of capacity overnight. Many which ordinarily close during daytime extended their hours of operation today.

He reminded residents that Info-Line, 211 has a list of shelters. Click here to see our list of shelters and link to Info-Line. Hear all the governor’s comments:
