A powerful winter storm is heading towards Northern New England this week. The storm is forecasted to drop isolated amounts of 30″- 36″ of snow by Friday.

“A strengthening storm center will tap Gulf of Mexico moisture and carry it northward into New England’s cold air Wednesday into Thursday. The result will be rain that ends with snow and a flash freeze in Southern New England, and a whopper of a snowstorm in the North Country. While Northern New England snowfall amounts should be on the order of one to two feet for many, isolated amounts of 30″-36″ in mountain towns – particularly in the Central/Northern Green Mountains and Mahoosuc Region of Maine – are possible. Farther south, most of the storm will be rain, though cold air will snap in early Thursday morning, changing rain to snow and icing up roadways for probable slippery conditions, even in Southern New England, Thursday morning. One area of southwest NH into Southern VT and extreme northwest MA has been highlighted for potential significant icing due to freezing rain – such a forecast is always tenuous, but residents in this area should be prepared for possible power outages.” – mattnoyes.net
