Today we’ll see some scattered light to moderate snow showers through the evening with temperatures climbing into the 30’s. In terms of snowfall accumulations were looking at 1-3″ with a bit more in some of the higher elevations.
Things dry out overnight Friday and temperatures plummet below zero in many spots by Saturday morning.
As for the weekend forecast here’s what we are thinking:
If you have anything to do this weekend, errands, travel plans, get it during the daylight hours of Saturday. After sunset things will deteriorate quicking as snow starts to overspread the region.
The heaviest snowfall rates, between 1-2″ per hour, will arrive during the wee hours of Sunday morning and it will set up somewhere over Southern Vermont. That’s where we’ll see the highest snowfall totals.
Poor conditions continue through much of the day on Sunday, and travel will be extremely difficult. Here are some of the largest impacts were expecting:
So how much snow are we thinking for your next of the woods? As of Friday morning, it looks like the heaviest snow bands will set up from White River Junction to Rutland south. That’s where totals will range between 18-24+”. Totals will be lighter the further North and West. See our latest thinking below for how much you could get int your neck of the woods.
Things start to taper back to snow shower by the evening hours of Sunday, and then the cold air POURS in. Monday will feature high temperatures near zero, and gusty winds making for windchills in the -30 to -50 range.
