A heavy snowfall mixing with sleet is in the forecast for Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont.
The National Weather Service of Gray, Maine, issued a winter storm watch from Tuesday to Wednesday afternoon, warning that heavy snowfall mixed with sleet or freezing rain will hit Maine and New Hampshire. Most locales in New Hampshire could see a total accumulation of 4 to 7 inches, and Maine can expect 6 to 10 inches.
Warm air Wednesday morning could mix snow with sleet along the coast, but a “widespread plowable
snowfall” is still expected.
Snow will begin Tuesday afternoon in New Hampshire, according to forecasters, and later in the evening for Maine. A heavy rate of snowfall is expected to make travel “very difficult to dangerous” Tuesday evening.
Forecasters with the National Weather Service in Burlington, Vermont, expect the snowfall to begin Tuesday afternoon and last until Wednesday afternoon. A total accumulation of 5 to 12 inches is expected in south-central Vermont, with up to 14 inches in the northeastern part of the state.
Snow will mix with sleet in south-central Vermont, forecasters say. Commuters are encouraged to take caution because visibility on roadways will be reduced to half a mile at times.
