INCIDENTS AND EVENTS:
- National Weather Service (NWS) – Burlington: A developing area of low pressure will move up the East Coast into New England with multiple impacts expected. The potential for freezing drizzle or light freezing rain, sharp river rises, and gusty winds will take place as the system moves across the area. The following summarizes the potential concerns from the system:
- Freezing drizzle and light freezing rain Friday afternoon until dawn on Saturday is expected across much of eastern Vermont. A light glaze to a few hundredths is expected and could result in slick conditions on untreated surfaces. The threat for icing will end on Saturday as temperatures warm above freezing.
- Otter Creek in Rutland could potentially reach minor flood, and the Mad River could approach bank full Saturday night. Moderate to locally heavy rain is expected on Saturday. Sections of south-central Vermont will see snowmelt from warming temperatures as well. This could lead to sharp rises across local streams and rivers with the potential for minor low-lying flooding.
- Strong downslope winds expected on Sunday. As the system exits the region, gusty west winds up to 35 to 50 mph are expected, especially across downslope regions of the Greens Mountains, and across portions of the Northeast Kingdom. In combination with wet soils, isolated power outages from downed trees will be possible.
- None reported.
