Short-Term Forecast:

Tuesday-Thursday:

A system will move through the Northeast today through Thursday and bring 3-8″ of snow to parts of Northern Vermont and New York.

Precipitation will start tonight as rain and snow for most locations across the region, with some light sleet accumulations as well.

Precipitation will then pick up in intensity tomorrow afternoon as moisture streams into the area.

By tomorrow night, all precipitation will change over to snow as the cold front moves through the region.

A strong northwest flow is expected behind the front and will keep some snow showers around, mostly confined to higher elevations.

Snowfall amounts will likely be lower than the map above but the map does a good job at visualizing where the heaviest snow will be.

Winter Weather Advisories have been issued for parts of the region because of this.

A multi-faceted storm will approach the forecast area beginning late
tonight. Precipitation will begin as a mix of rain and snow, with
trace amounts of sleet possible. Rain and snow will continue
throughout the day tomorrow, with wet snow accumulating across
the Adirondacks and northern Green Mountains. Precipitation will
be heavy during the afternoon and evening. After 8 PM
Wednesday, precipitation will change to snow across the entire
forecast area as a cold front exits east. Strong northwest
winds are expected on Thursday in addition to lingering mountain snow
showers and below normal temperatures. Additional chances for
precipitation are expected for the end of the week, though
temperatures will return to near normal.
