There is a Winter Storm Warning in effect for our region from 9:00AM today until 7:00AM Thursday morning.
Mother Nature is throwing us a curve ball perfectly timed to create maximum Holiday mayhem. A developing nor’easter along the middle Atlantic coast will bring snow to the region. Wet snow will develop across south-central Vermont this morning and then overspread northern Vermont and much of northern New York this afternoon. The heaviest snow accumulation is expected across south-central and eastern Vermont. We’ll see cloudy skies with periods of snow late. Highs will be around 33F with northeast winds at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of is snow 100% with snow accumulating 1″ to 3″ in our area before nightfall. Tonight will be cloudy with snow. Lows will be around 26F with north winds at 5 to 10 mph. Chance of snow is 100% with a total of 3″ to 6″ of snow expected for our area. Areas south and east will see higher totals in the 6″ to 14″ range. Be safe if you’re out there traveling for the holiday…
Thanksgiving day should be cloudy with highs near 30F and light and variable winds. We may see a few lingering snow showers, but nothing significant as the storm is a fast mover and will be well up into the Canadian Maritimes by Thursday morning. Thursday night should be partly cloudy with lows around 21F and light and variable winds.
Friday should be partly cloudy with high around 30F and light and variable winds. Friday night should be partly cloudy with lows around 17F and south-southwest winds at 5 to 10 mph.
