Snow In The Forcast For Northern New England

Just when hiking and foliage was on our minds snow is predicted on both coasts this week 10/1. My favorite News Station NECN's Matt Noyes says we can expect snow showers in Northern Vermont Friday night.
The area snow is expected is in the higher altitudes in a area I like to call the snowbowl. The area northeast of Burlington Vermont were J Peak is located gets massive amounts of snow every year. Storms blow in accross the lakes, over Burlington and let it go. Huge amounts of snow get deposited in the mountains.
This is my favorite time of year. The leaves are turning and we can see the weather patterns turn towards what skiers like to see. Instead of the patterns swinging south and then back north with warm temps, the pattern tends to stay north and grab cool air from Canada. Start to look for reports of people hiking up Killingtons and Mad River Glen soon.
