I'm heading up to Vermont tomorrow and I am wondering where to go exactly. The original plan was to go to Killington and then head south on Route 100 to Mount Snow. Based on what I can see on the Stratton webcam, the foliage above 2,500' looks past peak. I may just go to Mount Snow and decide from there where to go based on weather and foliage conditions. Hoping for sunshine tomorrow. The heavy rain on Thursday looks to be the death of foliage in Vermont, except for valley areas.

Do you think it will be that bad?
That sound very drastic and scary for people that are planning to go there the next weekend....

The NWS has 1.00 - 1.50" of rain forecast for the Mount Snow area and a cold front is going to combine with T.S Michael to produce heavy rain. Right now the heaviest rainfall looks to be over Southern Vermont, Massachusetts , Connecticut and Rhode Island. The temperature has also been very erratic across New England. Here in Enfield it was 84F on Sunday, 62F yesterday and 81F today. This is slowing down the foliage change, Here in Enfield it's 90% green.

I'm going up 1-91 to Route 2 to Route 112 and Route 100 North to Mount Snow. I'll report back as soon as I get home tomorrow.
