Winter weather will disrupt travel and accumulate several inches of snow locally Thursday and Friday.

Discussion:

Low pressure will move northeast, parallel to the eastern seaboard and pass very near Cape Cod bringing widespread snowfall to our region. Amounts will vary by location. Most of the snow is expected for eastern and southern Vermont, as well as New Hampshire. Northern New York will have snow, but generally lower totals than Vermont and New Hampshire.

Amounts:

Snow amounts will range from 6-12" for the heaviest accumulations in central, eastern, and southern VT and NH. Northwest Vermont, the Champlain Valley, and northeast NY will get 3-6" of snow. Finally 1-3" of snow can be expected for the western Adirondacks and St. Lawrence Valley, with the Montreal area getting very little if any.  Within snow bands and heavier bursts, there may be as much as 14-15" of snow in southeast VT/NH, mainly across the higher terrain. 

Timing:

Snow will develop from south to north Thursday mid-morning, becoming more intense through the evening and nighttime hours, especially for eastern VT and NH. Snow will taper in intensity and coverage Friday morning, finishing last in the northern mountains. You may need to have a shovel date with your sweetie on Valentine's Day!

 

Impacts:

The event will disrupt travel Thursday-Friday, both in the air and on ground. Snow will be heaviest Thursday night, thus between roughly 6pm Thursday - 6am Friday road and driving conditions are expected to be worst.
