Weather in December

December is cold in Vermont with the average temperatures in the 14°F (-10°C) to 36°F (2.2°C) range.
Rain is to the tune of 3" (76mm) to 4" (102mm) in the majority of the state with short days and limited sunshine.
Snowfall is heavy and averages 15" (381mm) to 20" (508mm). Mount Mansfield, the highest mountain in Vermont, receives a massive 42" (1067mm) of snow and 6.8" (173mm) of rain in December.
The weather conditions vary with altitude, but they are almost similar in the northern, central, and southern parts of the state.
The ski-season starts with the first snow of the winter, and December is usually white with snow in much of the state. Vermont needs very insulated winter clothes in the cold season - a few minutes of exposure of the skin to the severe cold can cause numbness of the skin. Winter has enjoyable activities like snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and snow tubing, among others, but it is only for a few brave souls.
