March 21, 2019

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) — It may be spring, but parts of Vermont are in for a dumping of snow.

The forecast is calling for 6 to 10 inches of snow along the western slope of the Green Mountains and parts of northeastern Vermont and more in the higher elevation.

A winter storm watch has been issued from late Thursday night to Saturday morning for Orleans, Essex, Lamoille, eastern sections of Franklin, Chittenden, Addison and Rutland counties. The National Weather Service says driving could be difficult during the morning and evening commutes on Friday. It also says high winds on Friday night could lead to tree damage and isolated power outages.

Green Mountain Power is also warning about possible power outages from the heavy, wet snow.
