Fairfield's Infrastructure Holds Up in Brutal Cold

Despite the chilly weather, icy spots and frozen pipes haven't been a problem in Fairfield.

Despite the brutally cold temperatures, Fairfield's infrastructure has held up just fine, Director of Public Works Joseph Michelangelo said.

Thanks to the due diligence of former Public Works Director Rich White, the town's drainage system has worked to keep wets spots from turning icy on the town's roads.

"We haven't been getting too many icy spots at all," Michelangelo said. "Nothing that requires any off-hours attention."

Thus far there have been no issues with the town's buildings, either.

"The pipes haven't frozen over," Michelangelo said.

Temperatures are forecast to warm up next week, when the high is supposed to reach 46 degrees on Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

Until then, here's what's in store:

  • Tonight: "Light snow likely, mainly between 7 p.m. and 1 a.m. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 15. West wind 6 to 8 mph becoming north after midnight. Chance of precipitation is 60 percent. New snow accumulation of less than a half inch possible."
  • Saturday: "Partly sunny, with a high near 28. Northwest wind 9 to 13 mph."
  • Saturday night: "Mostly clear, with a low around 18. Northwest wind 11 to 13 mph."
  • Sunday: "Sunny, with a high near 31. Northwest wind 11 to 15 mph."
