Brief:

Yesterday and last evening’s snow mixed with a little sleet and freezing rain in a few spots for a time overnight over northeastern Vermont but not before accumulating 2-4”; farther south and west, a change to occasional rain or mixed types took place after accumulations of a trace to an inch or so. Scattered light snow showers are now falling in northern sections as a reinforcing surge of polar air arrives from Ontario. The leading edge of this fresh air mass will continue southward today, and high pressure, centered just south of James Bay, will nose into the entire region this afternoon through tomorrow morning. This will fully clear the sky overnight over northeastern Vermont, northern New Hampshire, and southern Quebec, but southwestern sections of the region should stay partly to mostly cloudy. With fresh snow on the ground and dry air flowing southward from the Canadian shield to take advantage of the excellent radiative conditions, tonight should be quite chilly over northeastern sections. Tomorrow, moisture will blossom back northeastward. Light precipitation will break out during the morning over southwestern Vermont, and spread back into northeastern Vermont by evening. The cold air will be shallower than the previous wedge was, so mixed types are expected: sleet, freezing rain, rain and perhaps even a little snow in a sloppy potpourri over northeastern sections, with rain the predominant type over the southwestern half of the reigon. Unsettled conditions are likely to persist through the first half of the week.

Winds:

Today: North 5-15 mph; Tonight: Light north. Sunday: Becoming northeast to east 10 mph or less. On the open waters of Lake Champlain, the National Weather Service forecast is for north winds 5-15 kts today and this evening, diminishing to light and variable after midnight. Sunday, light and variable becoming southeast 5-10 kts during the afternoon. Waves on the open water 1-2 feet today and this evening, decreasing to 1 foot or less after midnight and continuing so on Sunday.
