It may only be October, but snow is flying across much of the Northeast.
A few inches could easily pile up overnight on grassy surfaces in many areas. Seeing as there are leaves still on many trees, downed powerlines are a concern. Some quick arithmetic indicates that NWS is calling for 3.7" of snow in the Burlington, VT area overnight. I also quickly checked out the model output, and I am seeing about 4.1" inches forcast for Burlington, so NWS's numbers seem reasonable.
High terrain and the St. Lawrence Valley look most likely to see the white stuff.
Of course, this is also being created by that double barreled Nor'Easter that we have been predicting off the New England coast.
