We recently had a guest forecaster, Steve Glazier, provide us with some insight into the weather of Burlington, but today, it’s my turn
At 154PM, ET, Burlington was reporting a temperature of 19 degrees with light snow. A jet lying across the northern portion of the country has extended the influence of a weak clipper over the southwestern Great Lakes, and has given away the future track of this system.
The clipper will swing northeast towards New England and draw influence and moisture from warmer Atlantic air, which will make things even snowier in Burlington. 1-3″ are possible in Burlington over the next two days, but the heaviest snows will fall around midday tomorrow when temperatures will be warmer, and the mix will be wet.. The strongest winds, however, will hold off until New Years Day, when another system arrives north of the Great Lakes, with a stronger pressure gradient, and subsequent blustery winds.

Two things… The major models are in complete disagreement on precip timing, temperature…. everything. I went with the NAM, which is cooler both days and has been more correct thus far in it’s current run. Second, there is a winter weather advisory out right now for Butlington. Thirdly, here is the radar, showing snow falling across northern Vermont.
