- New England finally arrives at the Powder Party
- Maine gets the lion’s share but Vermont not far behind
Any east coaster will tell you, New England’s weather has not been very cooperative this season and the change in temperature is a welcome respite from an otherwise rainy winter on the east coast. According to recents forecasts from NOAA, that trend is set to continue as overnight lows throughout the Green Mountains should remain in the single digits for much of the weekend.
In the meantime, here’s who got the most snowfall in the past 24 hours…

LET IT SNOW!
NOAA SHORT RANGE FORECAST DISCUSSION:
As cold temperatures and brisk winds associated with a potent upper-level trough over southeast Canada flow over the ice-free Great Lakes, prolonged bands of lake effect snow will continue downwind from all the Great Lakes and into the Central Appalachians through Saturday morning. In addition to the heavy snow, Blizzard Warnings are also in effect downwind of Lakes Erie and Ontario until Friday afternoon due to wind gusts up to 50 mph and potential whiteout conditions. The bulls-eye for the heaviest totals will
be in and around the Tug Hill Plateau of northern New York where storm total snowfall amounts will exceed three feet. Farther south, portions of the Ohio Valley and Mid-Atlantic may witness some spotty rain and snow showers late Friday morning and into the early evening hours.
