Vermont is about to get hit with 8 inches of snow or more. That means it’s probably time for you to start “developing a cold.”
Time to break out the powder snorkels: your prayers to Ullr have been answered. Winter storm Liam pounded the midwest on Tuesday, and now it’s coming for us. While National Weather Service has issued a less urgent “winter storm watch” for the rest of New England, the entire state of Vermont has an official warning.
Eight to 12 inches of freshies are expected to fall between the hours of 8 a.m. on Wednesday and 1 a.m. on Thursday. Northern Vermont will see the most snow, along with north and central regions of the Champlain Valley and the northern Adirondacks. The heaviest snowfall will occur between noon and 7 p.m. on Wednesday.
The National Weather Service warns that driving conditions will be hazardous, so take care on the roads if you’re chasing the pow. We’ll see you out there.
