12.6.13 Snow Ahead for Southern VT

Accumulating snow will fall over southern portions of the area Friday night.
A day after highs soared into the 40s and 50s, temperatures are falling back into the 30s and 40s behind a cold front. That cold front will lurk just off to our south tonight, allowing a little batch of moisture to ride up along it. Some of that moisture will get close enough to spread accumulating snow into the region.

The precipitation will begin around dinnertime Friday in far Southern Vermont as a little wintry mix, but will quickly turn to snow. It will spread a bit north, and east, through the overnight. This screenshot from FutureTracker shows about the northern extent of the snow tonight.

The snow will be out of here by morning, but even though it's a quick mover we'll still pick up a solid 1-3" for most places south of about Rutland/Rt. 4, and into nearby Southwest NH. Isolated 4"+ amounts will be possible in the highest peaks of the Southern Greens.

North of that line, roughly Rutland to Lebanon into parts of southern Addison and Orange counties, expect more like a dusting-1". Nothing more than flurries is expected in Northern Vermont, Northern New Hampshire, and Northern New York.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect tonight for Bennington and Windham Counties in Vermont, highlighting the areas most susceptible to the higher totals.
