The National Weather Service (NWS) says snow showers are likely in many mountain areas of Vermont on Saturday. Southern regions might pick up a half inch while northern areas may pick up four inches or so. All across the state the NWS shows snow or flurries in the forecast through Monday. I love it! We're glad to see you, December!
