.SYNOPSIS... Variable clouds and cooler, more seasonable temperatures are on track for today into the upcoming weekend. A weak weather system passing south of the area may bring a few light showers to the area Saturday morning, otherwise dry weather is expected into early next week. && .NEAR TERM /THROUGH SATURDAY/... As of 953 AM EDT Friday...Updated forecast to increase pops across the dacks/green mountains this morning and bump temps downward, especially across the higher trrn. The combination of weak secondary boundary, some westerly upslope flow and low level cold air advection is helping to produce some very light rain and near summit level mixed IP/Snow. Did receive one report near the summit of Mt Mansfield of very IP/snow earlier this morning. Otherwise, some breaks in the overcast will slowly develop this aftn, especially slv and downslope regions of the cpv. Temps hold in the 30s summits to 40s mountain towns, and l/m 50s warmer valleys.
“Our first non-zero storm total snow forecast for the 2018-2019 season! A dusting of light snow is possible above 3000ft on Saturday.”
