Brunt of winter storm 'Nemo' expected in other parts of New EnglandBy Josh O'Gorman
Staff Writer | February 07,2013Vermonters and visitors to the state will be treated to a wintry weekend but will be spared the full and mighty wrath of winter storm Nemo.
The first major storm of 2013 is expected to pummel parts of Massachusetts, and southern regions of New Hampshire and Maine with more than two feet of snow, but snowfall totals for most of Vermont are expected to fall far shy of that mark.
“We’re going to be more of a spectator on this one,” said Roger Hill, meteorologist for Worcestor, Vt.-based Weathering Heights. “It looks like a historic Nor’easter that will just graze Vermont.”
Forecasters are calling for between 7 inches and 10 inches of snow to fall across the state, beginning Friday morning and continuing until Saturday afternoon.
