    That's awesome. Love those mayhem cam shots. This was from a friend at 1,000ft in Stowe.

    Better flakes when radar echos are less, more graupel and convective style mixed ice when the radar echoes are stronger.

    I know I've posted some radar images today, but it's a type of day here. Always fun to see the first real winter precipitation.

    Just straight snowing now. No graupel or anything... floating flakes in the flood lights outside. Let it begin. I'm seeing photos of friends who live higher up with accums on cars.

    A little dandruff on the hill. After the midday squall, the snow accumulations were down another 500ft or so to mid-mountain but the warm ground melted that back throughout the afternoon despite the continued -SHSN. It is funny, you catch the mountain right after a solid squall and see some white way down and then look back an hour or two later and it's retreated back uphill to the upper mountain. Then the process repeats again when the next squall moves in.

    Oh the wxtap ones are for sure. Just look at the graphics, wxtap is so much better in display.

    First frozen at home in Stowe too... it has to be graupel but it looks more like sleety pellets. I know Tamarack saw some the other day where the atmosphere wasn't one that would lead to pellets, and it's the same today here. That last shower today was similar, it wasn't dippin dots like up at the mountain... it was more like clear pellets. Unless that's just what the last vestiges of graupel looks like before it fully melts?

    Those radar images are only like 200kb out of a 40mb allowance. Can get like 200 of those before needing to delete lol. You can't post cell photos on here without resizing, that's what eats your space. Even model maps with graphics like Ryan Mauve are much larger than those radar images. Those basic wunderground radar loops are as basic as it comes. Anyway, fun to have some weather that's noteworthy, can't wait for all on here to see first flakes. This time of year it's a fantastic day when that passing graupel/snowshower comes through...in April it's a terribly ugly day haha.

    Couldn't be anymore fall like than today. Lowering snow levels, orographic showers, snow changed to rain on my way home around 900-1,000ft. Now seems like catpaws at home with the occasional mangled iceball bouncing on the deck. What a cold season radar with moisture sparking precip over the upslope regions.

    Snowing briefly at the Stowe base now. Mixed with graupel, pooling in the eaves of the roof tops haha.

    Snowing now at 1,500ft in the Stowe base area... mixed with graupel dippin dots.

    Dumping on the mountain...snow levels are lowering, can see the bright banding near the radar site. Maybe some graupel reaching lower elevations?

    Another coating of white visible overnight on the upper elevations. Just -RN showers for mid-slope and lower elevations.
