...ACCUMULATING SNOW POSSIBLE FOR THE NORTH COUNTRY LATE TUESDAY
INTO WEDNESDAY...

A POTENT UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE WILL ENHANCE SURFACE LOW
PRESSURE ALONG THE NEW JERSEY COAST BY TUESDAY MORNING. THIS AREA
OF LOW PRESSURE WILL STRENGTHEN AS IT TRACKS NORTHEAST INTO THE
GULF OF MAINE BY WEDNESDAY. THE CIRCULATION AROUND THIS AREA OF
LOW PRESSURE WILL PUSH PLENTY OF ATLANTIC MOISTURE INTO THE NORTH
COUNTRY. MEANWHILE...NORTHWEST WINDS ON THE BACKSIDE OF THIS
SYSTEM WILL PULL ENOUGH COLD AIR INTO THE REGION AND CHANGE THE
RAIN TO SNOW ACROSS NORTHERN NEW YORK AND VERMONT BY TUESDAY
EVENING.

SNOW IS EXPECTED TO BECOME HEAVY AT TIMES...ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE
HIGHER TERRAIN ABOVE 1000 FEET ON TUESDAY NIGHT...AS A MOIST
UPSLOPE FLOW DEVELOPS. CURRENT FORECASTS SHOW THE POTENTIAL FOR A
SIGNIFICANT HEAVY WET SNOW EVENT ACROSS THE HIGHER TERRAIN OF THE
ADIRONDACK MOUNTAINS IN NORTHERN NEW YORK AND THE NORTHERN AND
CENTRAL GREEN MOUNTAINS OF VERMONT. SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS COULD
BE 6 OR MORE INCHES OVER THE HIGHER TERRAIN BY WEDNESDAY MORNING.
IN ADDITION...SOME WET SNOW ACCUMULATIONS WILL BE POSSIBLE IN THE
CHAMPLAIN...CONNECTICUT...AND SAINT LAWRENCE VALLEYS ON TUESDAY
NIGHT.

THIS HEAVY WET SNOW COMBINED WITH NORTHWEST WINDS OF 10 TO 20 MPH
COULD BRING DOWN TREE LIMBS AND POWER LINES ON TUESDAY NIGHT...
ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE HIGHER TERRAIN.

PLEASE STAY TUNED TO NOAA WEATHER RADIO...YOUR LOCAL MEDIA...OR GO
TO WWW.WEATHER.GOV/BURLINGTON FOR FURTHER UPDATES ON THIS WEATHER
SITUATION.
