Accuweather 2014-15 Winter Forecast. Longer detailed breakdown with link.

Will post the Northeast summary here in case link goes bad. Looks like VT is mostly in the snowy Zone.

US Winter Forecast: Cold, Snow to Seize Northeast; Wintry Blasts to Slick South

Quote:
Though parts of the Northeast and mid-Atlantic had a gradual introduction to fall, winter will arrive without delay. Cold air and high snow amounts will define the season.

After record-shattering temperatures and high snow totals last winter in the Northeast, a similar theme will continue into the 2014-2015 season.

Cold air will surge into the Northeast in late November, but the brunt of the season will hold off until January and February. The polar vortex, the culprit responsible for several days of below-zero temperatures last year, will slip down into the region from time to time, delivering blasts of arctic air.

"I think, primarily, we'll see that happening in mid-January into February but again, it's not going to be the same type of situation as we saw last year, not as persistent," AccuWeather.com Expert Long-Range Forecaster Paul Pastelok said.

In addition to the cold air, a big snow season could be in the offing. Higher-than-normal snow totals are forecast west of the I-95 corridor.

"Places like Harrisburg, down to Hagerstown getting into the mountains, the Appalachians, I think that's where you're going to see your bigger, heavier amounts," Pastelok said.

Philadelphia, which received a whopping 68.9 inches last season, is forecast to close this season with snow totals just above normal. New York City will likely follow suit.

The I-95 corridor and eastward could fall victim to changeover systems, which will provide a messy wintry mix at times.

You guys ready for 20s? Has any station in VT hit 20s yet? I think so, I just forgot.

Cold tomorrow especially with the winds! Then winds die, sky clears, temps aloft below freezing, and surface coooools down.

"scattered" Snow showers for higher elevations. Some 3000'+ spots will see flakes, most 3000'+ spots wont.

I think today is a good day to bring the plants in for good until Spring. We'll see.

Decent snow cover on the top of Mansfield from Sat night, and I'm not positive, but looks like the very top of Camels Hump may be white as well. (photo from Stowe.com website)

Yup, clipper coming down right now over Great Lakes will head towards the coast then merge with a new developed coastal storm and that storm heads up the coast but VERY SLOW moving.

So expect wind gusts 20mph+ Wednesday to Friday (not straight through) and cloudy and rain (not at all times).

I think Maine will get it the worst with coastal erosion, 40mph winds, and ton of rain.

Here's WPC's rain total forecast. 1.50" - 2.00" for Vermont is nothing but they may be playing it conservative right now and this might change. Check their update tomorrow.

WPC 5- and 7-Day Total Quantitative Precipitation Forecasts




Current Surface Map. See the Clipper over Lake Huron right now? This entire setup (clipper into NorEaster) would bury us with snow if it was 2-3 months from now.
