Many residents of northern New England enjoyed the early taste of winter with a full snow on Saturday.
Derek Schreuter, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine, said the region had the first widespread heavy snowfall of the season, causing power outages due to heavy snowfall.
In Jefferson, New Hampshire, there was enough snow to delay the opening of the amusement park Santa’s Village until the snow cleared on Saturday. 0.5 feet (15 centimeters) of snow was recorded north of Jackman, Maine, and 8 inches (20 centimeters) of snow fell in Colebrook, New Hampshire. Snow also covered parts of the Green Mountains in Vermont.
In other parts of northern New England, it rained steadily. In most parts of Maine and New Hampshire, it rained at least 1 inch (2.5 cm) and up to 2 inches (5 cm).
