General:

***WINTER STORM WARNING FOR NEW HAMPSHIRE, FAR SOUTHERN VERMONT, THE TACONICS, AND BERKSHIRES***

***WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES FOR THE REST OF VERMONT AND EASTERN NEW YORK***

Brief:

The triple storms of 2018, perhaps that’s what they call it in years to come. Presently, other descriptions are being used, ranging from elation to misery, as another nor’easter takes a track from 250 miles south of Cape Cod this morning, well east of Cape Cod this evening, and then reaching Nova Scotia tomorrow. The coastal storm’s track, although farther east than the last storm, also features a stronger trailing system over the Great Lakes, which means the coastal storm will provide heavier snows through southern and eastern areas, while the trailing energy in the Great Lakes pulls moisture back into northern and western areas. Unlike the previous storm, a stronger center to our east will enhance the cold airflow over the mountains, with the potential for a long-lasting event over the higher terrain north, where snow showers may last the rest of the week. Temperatures won’t stray too far from 30 degrees through tomorrow, ease up a little Thursday, before colder air arrives Friday into the weekend.

Winds:

Winds today from the north 10 to 15 mph, increasing to 10 to 25 mph southeast Vermont and southern half of New Hampshire. gusting to 25 mph in the afternoon. Overnight, north winds becoming northwest near 10 mph, gusting to 25 mph over northern areas late. On Wednesday, winds from the northwest near 10 mph. The outlook for Thursday calls for west to northwest winds 10 to 15 mph, gusting to 30 mph.

Winds becoming northeast to north and increasing, with temperatures in the low 20s, except teens in the Presidential Range.
