See this page on forecast.weather.gov. The flood potential is above normal for much of the forecast region:

Snow water equivalent, or the amount of water contained in the
snowpack is above normal for this time of year in elevated terrain
above 1500 feet. Elsewhere values are closer to early March
seasonal levels. This includes the lower elevations of the Saint
Lawrence, Champlain and lower Connecticut River Valleys where
values of 1 to 4 inches are common. Values increase markedly
across the mid-slope terrain from 1500-2500 feet however. In this
zone equivalents range from 3 to 7 inches in the Adirondacks and
from 5 to 9 inches in Vermont. Even higher values are present in
the high terrain of the Adirondacks and Greens and elevations
above 3000 feet likely contain more than 10 inches of water in the
pack. The highest positive departures exist across elevated
terrain of eastern and northeastern Vermont where values of +150%
are being observed.
