The weekend storm will bring heavy snowfall to the area

Much of Vermont and northern New York could see several inches of heavy, wet snow this weekend as another winter storm system passes over the region. Snowfall is expected to begin in far western northern New York around 6 a.m. Saturday and continue throughout the day, according to early forecasts. It will most likely fall as heavy, wet snow which could cause problems for shoveling. “I think this is a moderate to heavy wet spell Saturday afternoon into the evening,” NBC5 meteorologist Ben Frechette said. Early estimates released Wednesday morning — which are subject to change as the storm approaches — show a majority of communities can expect at least six inches of buildup. “This is a first call for the snowfall map, expect changes in the future,” Frechette said. “If the storm tends to be a little colder, those numbers could go up. It’s a tough forecast and confidence is much weaker than past storms.” The latest video forecasts and storm estimates from local meteorologists can be found on the NBC5 weather blog.
