   Mesoscale Discussion 0152
   NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK

   Areas affected...Northeast NY...Most of VT and NH...Northern
   MA...Far southwest ME

   Concerning...Winter mixed precipitation 

   Valid 072244Z - 080345Z

   SUMMARY...Mixed winter precipitation is expected over the region as
   precipitation transitions from snow to sleet to freezing rain and
   eventually to all rain. Freezing rain rates may exceed 0.03" to
   0.05" an hour.

   DISCUSSION...Surface observations across northeastern NY, southern
   VT, and northern MA have been reporting freezing rain rates around
   0.03" to 0.06" per hour with ice accretion up 0.05" in the last
   hour. General expectation for the next few hours is for
   precipitation to continue across this region but warming mid-level
   and surface temperatures will promote a transition to all rain. 

   Farther north, ongoing light to moderate snowfall is expected to
   gradually transition to sleet as mid-level temperatures warm within
   the warm conveyor while surface temperatures remain in the mid to
   upper 20s. The sleet is then expected to transition to mostly
   freezing rain as mid-level warming continues amidst gradual surface
   warming. Freezing rain rates near 0.03 to 0.05" per hour are likely.
   An eventual transition to all rain is currently expected later
