Forecast Discussion For you snow lovers out there I am happy to write this forecast for you. For people who don't like snow, well, it's winter, it had to happen at some point. I know that for the Northeast Kingdom winters are usually harsh with a lot of snow and cold temperatures, and that a few inches shouldn't be that big of a deal. However, considering what we have had so far, which are mild temperatures and little amounts of snowfall, this is a big event. Nonetheless, we will see some snow piling up on the ground through the course of Thursday and Thursday night as the "Alberta Clipper" passes over the region, however, temperatures will remain rather steady through the period with highs around 30 and lows in the 20's. The next chance chance for snow is another "Alberta Clipper" that will pass over the region on Saturday. A high pressure will then move over the region for Sunday, allowing for the clouds to break up and give us a glimpse of the sun, before another possible snow event comes back into the picture on Monday.
