Good day to you, southeastern denizens of the Green Mountain State! We’ve got the potential for more snow on the way, but this is nothing like what we saw earlier this month.
In fact, so much dry air will be in place before the storm on Wednesday evening, as well as being actively pulled into it, that some areas may see nothing, or just a few flurries or scattered snow showers.
Beyond Wednesday night, we can look forward to more fair albeit unseasonably cool weather conditions before some more light snow is possible on Monday. With that said, let’s jump into the details!
For Wednesday, we will be clouding up quickly as low pressure exits the Mid-Atlantic coastline and meanders off the New Jersey coast for a period of time. As the snow shield moves north, it will encounter plenty of dry, cold air thanks to a high pressure system positioned over east-central Canada.
This system will spread colder, drier air southeast into southern Vermont. While this will provide plenty of cold air at all levels for the precipitation to fall in the form of snow, it will “eat” the northern fringes of the snow shield.
All this to say, some snow showers and even light accumulating snow is possible Wednesday late afternoon and through the night. A coating to 3 inches is possible by Thursday morning, but I wouldn’t be surprised if some folks received no accumulation. Highs will be in the low 30s and lows in the mid 20s.
For Thursday, the storm departs to our east, and high pressure starts to build into the region. North and northwest winds will gust 20 to 30 mph at times as the storm pulls away.
The Thursday through Sunday period looks to generally feature partly sunny skies and fair weather, with highs in the low to mid 30s and lows in the 20s. A sweetly uneventful stretch of weather after the Snowmageddon dumping earlier in March. I imagine many of you are buried still!
As for early next week, I am monitoring a southern stream storm and an upper level low pressure system diving southeast out of Canada. For now, it appears they will not phase and join forces. The upper low, however, could bring more snow showers through the region Monday into Tuesday with highs in the 30s. Have a great week!
