  1. NNE Winter Thread

    The next major system coming into the area is called Winter Storm Jaxon, and I got an alert on my phone this afternoon about Winter Weather Advisories being posted in association with this event. There isn’t too much snow expected, but I assume in combination with the potential for ice it hit the threshold for an advisory. Advisory and projected snowfall accumulations maps from the BTV NWS are below:

    I’m right there with you – I was kind of looking forward to some “40 F and sunny” turns on terrain that softened, at least in the context of where the conditions are. Personally, I think it’s actually been a weird season thus far; I’ve sort of been waiting for one of those usual periods we have in the Northern Greens where things come together and conditions simply take off, but I haven’t felt it quite yet. The timing of things (surface conditions, powder, temperatures, etc.) just hasn’t come together, so the windows of greatness, or even near greatness have seemed relatively small. There’s no doubt that conditions were decent to even great at times in December, but that ridiculous cold sort of ruined the potential for some primo days in my opinion. The pack is generally in fine shape (and actually quite bomber thanks to Winter Storm Hunter), so all we really need is a 1 to 2 footer without that ridiculous arctic cold to hit a window.

    Yeah, I was seeing it here on our web cam, and they’ve been around much of the evening as well – no real accumulation though. We’ve had snow falling (even if not 100% continuously) since early Tuesday, but it’s still not technically “days and days of snow”, because doesn’t that have to be at least four days? “We” (because apparently that’s how you’re supposed to state it) sort of LOL at that concept though because how often does that even happen down where all the hullabaloo was raised? The term smacks of hyperbole.

    Event totals: 0.1” Snow/Trace L.E. We didn’t get as much snow today at the house as I saw in Burlington, but there was a tenth of an inch of fluff on the boards. There is the chance for a bit more into tomorrow, although it’s expected to be focused in the higher elevations so we’ll have to see if anything makes it down here. Details from the 6:00 P.M. Waterbury observations: New Snow: 0.1 inches New Liquid: Trace Temperature: 24.1 F Sky: Flurries Snow at the stake: 11.0 inches

    The BTV NWS did note this morning’s snow in their most recent discussion – it does look like it was lake-effect moisture so I’ll put any accumulations at our site under that event. Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Burlington VT 940 AM EST Thu Jan 18 2018 .NEAR TERM /THROUGH FRIDAY/... As of 940 AM EST Thursday...Increased pops through late morning/early afternoon across the southern SLV/Dacks and into portions of the Champlain Valley/central VT to account for weak lake effect snow showers advecting east across these areas. Models are not handling current light activity well, though most recent HRRR output has a so-so handle on things showing modest WSW transport flow of 20-30 kts at 925 mb so leaned in its direction. Any acculumations will remain light and generally less than 1 inch save perhaps areas to the west of KSLK in portions of far southern Franklin and St. Lawrence Counties in NY. The rest of the forecast regarding temperatures and general cloud cover remain on track. Have a great day.

    I thought today was going to be fairly quiet on the snowfall front, but we’ve got some fairly vigorous snowfall going on here in Burlington right now, and there’s an obvious push of moisture coming into the area on the radar: I can see some big flakes at home on the J&E Productions Live Web Cam as well, so the moisture is getting to the spine. Based on the BTV NWS forecast discussion, this could be some Lake Ontario moisture, but they may discuss it a bit more since we’re actually getting a bit of accumulation here in Burlington.

    Event totals: 2.3” Snow/0.13” L.E. The snow from Winter Storm Inga thus far hasn’t show very high snow to liquid ratios, but today’s accumulation was notably fluffier and the larger flakes falling outside are consistent with that trend. Details from the 6:00 P.M. Waterbury observations: New Snow: 1.1 inches New Liquid: 0.04 inches Snow/Water Ratio: 27.5 Snow Density: 3.6% H2O Temperature: 21.9 F Sky: Light Snow (3-12 mm flakes) Snow at the stake: 11.0 inches

    Winter Storm Inga isn’t expected to be too much of an impact up here in the north, with only some Winter Weather Advisories in the southernmost part of the BTV NWS CWA, but there is some headline text associated with it, so I’ve posted the most recent advisories and projected accumulations maps below:

    That’s pretty neat Tamarack; it’s great when other locations get to experience those types of rarified snowfalls as well. Here in the upslope/LES zone we don’t typically go in for all that sexist snow talk that you’ll sometimes hear on the forum – 100:1 is simply a really efficient use of moisture and a nice localized jab at entropy.
  14. NNE Winter Thread

    Event totals: 0.3” Snow/0.03” L.E. The morning’s snow is from the weakening low over southern Ontario/Lake Huron that will be transferring energy to the Cape, but it’s actually the first volley from Winter Storm Inga, so today’s totals will be rolled into that overall event. Details from the 6:00 A.M. Waterbury observations: New Snow: 0.3 inches New Liquid: 0.03 inches Snow/Water Ratio: 10.0 Snow Density: 10.0% H2O Temperature: 15.1 F Sky: Light Snow (1-2 mm flakes) Snow at the stake: 9.5 inches

    So I see as usual things were a total meltdown, shut ‘em down, to the border, AWT, glad we don’t live there, napes, etc., etc.
