BURLINGTON, Vt.—The National Weather Service says snowfall records have been smashed on Vermont's highest mountain.

The weather service said Mount Mansfield -- which tops out at nearly 4,400 feet -- received 18 inches of snow on Saturday, breaking the old record for the date of 4 inches, set in 1982.

The mountain got 7 inches of snow on Friday, which also set a record for the date.

The weather service said most low-lying areas in Vermont received rain during the storm, but that the town of Jeffersonville got 3 inches.
