This weekend is a big travel weekend, Duell said, so air travelers and motorists may want to stay up to date on the weather forecast. Friday morning and Saturday morning could see delays or other weather impacts.

Duell said coastal nor'easters often impact travel on the I-95 corridor around New York City, Boston and through southern New England. Air travelers flying to or through those areas may want to be aware of the possible effects.

For state road conditions you can check

Temperatures should stay seasonable in the 30s, so the main concern is precipitation. So, have those snow boots handy and be prepared to be flexible if traveling . For those hoping for a white Christmas, this storm could make conditions more favorable for having snow on the ground come Dec. 25.

Emergency contacts

The Department of Public Safety said the snow is expected to be heavy and could weigh down trees and powerlines, leading to power outages. The division says to make a plan for where to go or what to do if your power goes out. You can call Vermont 211 to find a warming center or shelter. If you are using a house generator, the department said to make sure to keep it out of the house or garage to ensure fumes don't make it into the home's breathing air.
