The cold blast is nearly done, but we have to make it through one more night before mild air returns.
Tonight we should expect mostly clear skies with lows reaching 10 to 20 degrees below zero... a wind chill shouldn't play much factor tonight. Make sure all pets are indoors!
Monday will be chilly to start likely below zero, but will slowly warm up during the late morning and early afternoon to the low 20s. Sunglasses will be a must for the morning commute, and clouds will increase during the early afternoon ahead of our next vigorous system.
Snow showers will start south and work north, southern Vermont should see first flakes around 3-5pm and northern Vermont 7-9pm.
Southern Vermont including Bennington and Windham Counties are under a Winter Weather Advisory for Monday 5pm to 7am Tuesday for 2-5" of snow.
Tuesday will see increasing southerly flow that will usher in warmer air and transition over the snow to sleet and rain. We will have to watch for the potential for freezing rain since the recent arctic air has chilled the landscape.
By Wednesday temperatures will fall back to the low 30s with any remaining moisture we will see snow showers.
Models aren't in full agreement yet of the tracking of this system, adjustments will be made as new information is received.
