We are still dealing with flooding across our region: Here are some roads to look out for as you head out the door this morning:
Winooski River @ Essex: North Williston Rd in Essex and Pine Island Rd in Colchester
Otter Creek @ Rutland: Portions of Rt. 7, Rt. 4 and West Proctor Rd, Rt. 73 and Union and Pearl St. in Brandon, West Creek Rd between Depot Rd. and Proctor Town Line
Barton River @ Barton: Maple St. and River Rd
The rivers are still running high and fast this morning, but over the next 24 hours, the rivers will fall within their banks.
Here’s the forecast for The Otter Creek River in Rutland, falling to action stage by tomorrow morning.
The system that caused all of the issues yesterday has departed from our region, but as it’s doing so, it picking up a blustery northwesterly wind gusting between 20-30 mph. That wind is also putting down a few snow showers especially in the higher elevations. A lot of folks are waking up to a light coating of snow on some of the grassy, cold surfaces.
Clouds may hang out a little bit longer in the Northeast Kingdom, while the chance for snow showers diminishes throughout the day. Otherwise sunshine prevails as high pressure builds in from the west. That gusty wind will make temperatures in the upper 40’s feel more like the upper 30’s.
Wednesday will feature plentiful sunshine, with temperatures in the 50’s and winds dying back making for a gorgeous day.
Another low-pressure system develops to the west bringing rain showers for Thursday morning as the warm front of the system lift through the region.
