October 29/30 Snowstorm OBS thread

Recommended Posts

Started as snow here at noon, just as I finished mowing the lawn/mulching leaves. Temp/dp at noon was 38.0/28. Temp is now 32.9/30 with mod/heavy snow. Started sticking at 12:45 or so. Already have just under an inch. Did not expect to see accumulations until after sundown - epic fail with low level temps by the GFS.

Should be interesting. I'm at almost 400', don't know if that or my location a little further inland will make a big difference for this storm.

Oh didn't know you were on a huge mountain like that.. makes more sense. I just ran up the hill 1.5 miles up the road and they had over .5" 15 min ago.. much more wintery feel than here even sticking to the road a bit. I have a coating but everything is wet.

It will be interesting to compare totals... probably a bigger gradient than any storm last year between you and I. I could see you getting 6" and me getting 2"

34.3/30.9 S- in Stafford Springs, CT

Funny thing is that just a couple hundred feet down the hill it's more of a mix but here at 650' it's all snow (wet though)

I was just running errand in town and it was raining, as I drove up the hill to my house it turned to snow, Im at 715', the center of town is about 500'

i think they are going to have to up the snow accumulation part though

Tonight: Snow. Some thunder is also possible. Low around 30. Blustery, with a north wind between 15 and 20 mph, with gusts as high as 31 mph. Chance of precipitation is 100%. New snow accumulation of 4 to 8 inches possible.

Messenger, very curious about your precip, up here by Pembroke it is just pouring rain.

I'm mixing here in Milton. The raindrops are huge too

Not looking good for power later here. Hopefully they have backup. Our saving graces *might* be that that the snow is a bit drier here at this elevation and the trees have fewer leaves than areas in CT.
