  1. Another solid inversion this morning. Gunstock at 1348' is 44F while Silver Lake at 485' is 27F.

     

    Got down to 29F here. Based on those mid 40s aloft we should skyrocket around mid-morning.

     

    Same here. 36F at my house, 21F at Fryeburg 


  2. Will precip fill back in? It pretty much stopped here after the flip...

     

     

     

    Yeah, I'm going to have to update to at least put a small amount of accumulation south of the mountains it looks like.

     

    Model guidance was fairly horrible when it came to mid level temps today. Nothing came close to capturing the rapidity of cooling. I ended up just shifting everything 6 hours earlier.


  3. Seems to be clearing here, just as the snow line finally reached us. Just can't win! Maybe it will fill in a little as the low deepens?

     

     

    Likely a little toooooo wet, but the I'll take it for 12hr precip.  Certainly the overall flow supports this sort of gradient. If it were actually cold, this would be awesome. With the marginal snow growth temps and non-frozen ground, this feels like a 3-4" type snow today....mostly above 1500ft...which is all I care about.

  4. Very strange setup here. I can see snow all around me and the levels have dropped significantly - lower than my house across the valley, but I'm not even getting a flake or a drop. It's like there's a hole just around Jackson (Jackson Hole???)


  5. Flurries have intensified a bit here; looking down the notch you can see snow-covered trees just past Black Mountain, and the backside of Wildcat seems quite white. Might go for a ride later. I love my new digs - even though its only 1250 ft, it's really perched up, and it feels very mountainy. Picture from my window looking towards Mt Washington (which of course is completely hidden)

  6. Well roughly half our forecast area is over 1000 feet elevation. 1500 is probably a fair estimate of what most in our office consider higher terrain, and even then most of north Oxford and Franklin Counties and all of Coos County is above 1500 feet.

     

    For our text products, our zones sample only elevations below 2000 feet, and our REC forecast samples elevations over 2500 feet.

     

    So that's the long way around to saying higher terrain is somewhere between 1500 and 2500 feet.

     

    That's a great explanation, THANK YOU!


  7. From GYX's AFD:

     

    "SURFACE TROUGH WILL SWING IN FROM THE WEST FRIDAY
    NIGHT ENHANCING SHOWER ACTIVITY....ESPECIALLY IN THE MOUNTAINS
    WHERE SEVERAL INCHES OF SNOW WILL BE POSSIBLE OVER THE HIGHER
    TERRAIN BY SATURDAY MORNING"

     

    What's considered "higher terrain"? My new place is at 1250 ft, above Jackson NH... is that high enough to get some? Thanks (and yes, a  :weenie: is well deserved)


  8. Light snow here in Bartlett, Bretton Woods is getting clobbered though. Looks like about an inch so far from my door camera. Went for a hike up Tuckerman's today, it was amazing. At about 3500 it felt like mid-winter. Made it to Hermit Lake, 3800ft, and it was blowing snow, icicles on the buildings, etc - felt like mid-winter!


  9. Nice! I'm hoping we see something down here in the valley in the near future... but it's nice to know it's coming, either way! Work just officially approved my 2-day work remotely request, so I'm now officially spending more time in NNE than SNE...  :icecream:

     

     

     

    First snow this afternoon at Stowe.
