As a storm continues to make its own cold air, temperatures and snow levels were falling, reaching more and more of the higher elevations in New England Friday.
"Snow levels across Vermont during the midday Friday ranged from near 2,000 feet in the south to 3,000 feet in the north," according to Dale Mohler, expert senior meteorologist.
Snow was falling on top of Mount Mansfield, east of Burlington, Vt.
Meanwhile, snow was also flying and accumulating at the mid-slope lodge at Killington Resort, and the road up to the resort was snow covered and slushy during the middle of the day Friday.
"The White Mountains in New Hampshire were also living up to their name," added Mohler.
Mount Washington, N.H. was being hit by blizzard conditions with near-zero visibility in snow and 80-mph wind gusts.
A foot of snow may blanket the tops of the mountains in Vermont and New Hampshire through tonight.
Evidence of snow and slush may be visible in some areas as low as 1,500 feet tonight into early Saturday.

Snow will also fall over the Adirondacks of New York state late today and tonight, as well as in the Laurentian Mountains in Quebec.
Some snowflakes could make the trip as far south as the ridges in the Catskills and Berkshires tonight and the Longfellow Mountains in Maine Saturday.
Amateur and professional photographers may want to capture the early season snowfall amidst a background of fall foliage. Even though leaves are past peak in many of the northern areas, there are still a few pockets of color.
Be careful when snow spotting into Saturday, as gusty winds may be bringing down trees and wires on secondary mountain roads.
Just as the wind will blow leaves about at lower elevations around the Northeast into Saturday, winds will also create low visibility where snow is flying in the mountains.
