Weather: Light snow Saturday night into Sunday morning (2/17/18)

News
Snowfall expected by Sunday morning.

Good evening everyone! Clouds continue to filter in across New Hampshire, Vermont, and New York’s North Country on our Saturday Night. A strong coastal low will move quickly past southern New England into the overnight hours. While it might be moving at a quick pace, we will still see minor effects. Those seeing the ‘jackpot’ snowfall will be people living in Bennington and Windham Counties. Those counties are under a Winter Weather Advisory for 4-6″ of snow, generally widespread 3-6″ is most likely. Central Vermont, and south of the Champlain Valley are likely to see 1-3″, with the Champlain Valley and North Country receiving a dusting up to an inch. 

Sunday morning may have a few snow showers lingering in the mountains, otherwise partly cloudy to start. Lows to start the morning will be in the middle and upper 20s, but will hit the upper 30s to near 40 degrees before sunset. Otherwise, during the day clouds will gradually thin out. A tad on the breezy side, with a northwest wind at 10-15mph.

Heading into early next week, we are looking at spring-ish weather. While we are still very much in winter, warmer temperatures and rain will arrive. While this break from winter will be welcomed, those living along frozen rivers, creeks, and streams will be on alert of ice jams. Tuesday and Wednesday we are likely to see near record highs in the upper 50s. Snow melt, and rain will cause our snow pack to thin out quickly. This is something we will continue to monitor into early next week.
