Winter storm delivers snow, sleet, freezing rain to region

A major storm is heading for southern Vermont with a potentially hazardous mix of freezing rain, sleet, and snow.

The storm expected to start Sunday night, and last right through Tuesday afternoon.

On Sunday, The National Weather Service in Albany, N.Y., has posted a Winter Storm Warning for Windham County, with heavy mixed precipitation expected and total snow accumulations of 1 to 4 inches and ice accumulations of a quarter to half an inch. Winds could gust as high as 40 mph on Monday.

“Expect power outages and tree damage due to the ice,” the Weather Service said in its warning. “Travel could be impossible. The hazardous conditions could impact the Monday morning and evening commutes and the Tuesday morning commute.”

Green Mountain Power said it started mobilizing crews on Friday to prepare for a probable ice storm.

“We've been tracking multiple forecasts for days leading up to this storm and crews will be ready to respond as safely and quickly as possible,” said Mike Burke, GMP's Chief of Field Operations, in a news release. “We want customers to be aware that outages are possible and could be for an extended duration given the multi-day storm packing a tough combination of ice, snow, and strong winds.”
