A powerful storm well off the New England coast continues to supply ample amounts of moisture for widespread light snow Monday night into Tuesday. It has had to battle quite a bit of dry air over the north country but snow continues to win out. If you don't have snow at your house yet, you will by Tuesday morning. It'll be the light and fluffy variety of snow but it will be adding up; most in the north country wake up with an inch or so on the ground. There will be much more in New Hampshire, generally about 3-6", before dry air returns. If you're midnight voting in New Hampshire, please be careful. It's going to be cold and untreated roads will be snow covered. Dry air will try to punch back in late tonight through early Tuesday but sporadic snow will continue through the early morning commute; temperatures will be in the teens and low 20s. As dry air moves in during the morning, a lot of the snow will get shut off after sunrise. Still, a few snow showers will linger through the afternoon. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy, highs will be in the upper 20s, not budging much from overnight lows. Another batch of energy will move west to east across the area Tuesday night through Wednesday. This will bring another round of snow showers to the area. By the end of Wednesday most of our ground will be covered white again; 1-3" in most of Vermont including the Champlain Valley & foothills; 3-4" for the Adirondacks, Green Mountains and Northeast Kingdom, 3-6" (thanks to earlier Monday snow) across much of New Hampshire. Spotty light snow showers will still be around on Thursday and Friday along an arctic cold front; highs Thursday and Friday will be in the teens & low 20s. The front will live up to its name as "arctic" by delivering the coldest air of the winter season through Valentine's Day weekend. Lows Saturday morning will be around 0° with highs Saturday afternoon struggling to get to 5°. Saturday night we'll all likely dip well below 0° with highs Sunday inching close to 10°. Spotty light snow is possible Saturday with most confined to the mountains. The bigger weather story over the weekend is easily the cold. Those of you who have been waiting for winter, it's here.
