A storm system will bring a round of snow to most of the Northeast to start the holiday weekend. Winter Weather Advisories have been issued for all of Vermont, most of New York, and portions of Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Lower Michigan. The heaviest totals are likely to be in the higher elevations of Vermont and Upstate New York, along with the lake effect snow belts. 4″ to 8″ of snow is possible in those areas. Some sleet and freezing rain may occur in the advisory areas of New York, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania, creating additional travel difficulties.
As the low pressure center moves into the Ohio Valley, a warm front will push into the Northeast. It will bring in the first round of snow. Some light mixed precipitation may develop Friday midday and afternoon as the front slides to the northeast.
Snow will push into northern New England through Saturday morning as wrap around and lake enhanced snow develops behind the low. A few additional of inches of snow will accumulate. The low will move out into the Atlantic by Sunday and the winter precipitation will come to an end.
