See here:

http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick...2=-72.6857&e=1

That has it raining with temps at 41 degrees as of 4:25 PM Eastern. I know for a fact that Stowe is blasting the snow guns right now, and that requires temps to be 32 or lower.

Also, does NOAA have doplar radar graphs or moving graphs? I couldn't find it on the website.
NOAA has nearly everything, you just have to look around to find stuff.

You can also change the location to reflect higher altitudes and therefor more accurate temperatures on top of the mountain. On the 7-day forecast for a location there is a little google map with a green zone on the righthand side. If you move the map to the top of the mountain and click, it will move the zone to that higher elevation.
