NNE Winter Thread II

1.9" as of 6:30pm and still snowing

Right with me... I sent in 2.1" to BTV at 7pm.

Nothing overly impressive but nice to have persistent light snow. Now that we've got a good base snowpack down, these little nickle and dime events are nice to keep everything fresh.

I was watching radar and the mountain sat in a band for a bit this evening, while we were on the eastern side of it, so I bet Mansfield's up near 4" right now. Radar is trying to blossom again, with the coastal low, so we'll see what happens overnight.

Looks like Killington is in the jackpot again. Its still snowing and it snowed heavily all day here. It sure is nice after last year where Killington was one of the areas with the lowest totals. Skiing here is amazing now. The mountain is having record setting attendance.

Agreed. Couple of amazing days, just getting really crowded. Still snowing and forecast looking good!

Pretty unimpressive here. About 2", maybe hair more. Had a few moderate periods this afternoon, but the flakes were very small, and, as mentioned had a hard time accumulating. Radar looking really unimpressive and though it's still lightly snowing, think I'm about done here for any more depth.

Oh well, got more than I expected in The Wednesday/Thursday event...it's all good :D

I spent most of the day at my brother in law's on the Middlesex/Moretown/Berlin line and he had a little more than that when I left around 5:00. I'd say he had a bit over 3" then and it was still coming down moderate to heavy. Of course back up in those hills they seem to attract snow.

What is nutty steff's? I'll go back as soon as i finish the bread, sticky buns and macaroons.

A chocolatier in the same building. I think she started out making chocolates for the Red Hen and then started her own business because they were so popular.

Well, I put on my boots and went out to the table near my shed. Two and a half inches on the nose. Guess the stoop next to the back door suffered from some "shadowing" from the house...lol. Still, I'm under 1,000' feet here at 880'. I'm selling this house either this summer or next. Need a smaller place. I'm taking suggestions for sweet spots in Washington or Lamoille county ;-)

3.5" here in Williston where I am so far. I think that 5" could possibly be a weenie report but there is higher terrain there.

Event totals: 2.1” Snow/0.19” L.E.

I only had time between ski sessions to take observations at 5:00 P.M., but I’m passing those along now. Snowfall was pretty consistent through the afternoon, but flakes were small, so the snow on the snowboard was a very synoptic-like 9.0% H2O. Flake size has certainly increased this evening however, so I’d expect the next round of snow to come in drier.

At last check there was another 0.8” of snow on the snowboard, so season snowfall has hit the 50” mark, and is now actually ahead of average. The second half of December has been excellent for snowfall, with over 40” so far here in the valley since the 16th, and still a couple of days to go in the month.

Details from the 5:00 P.M. Waterbury observations:

New Snow: 2.1 inches

New Liquid: 0.19 inches

Snow/Water Ratio: 11.1

Snow Density: 9.0% H2O

Temperature: 23.2 F

Sky: Moderate Snow (1-3 mm flakes)

Snow at the stake: 15.5 inches

Event totals: 3.2” Snow/0.26” L.E.

Flake size had increased a bit this evening, but when I headed out for 11:00 P.M. observations they were generally small and there was also some graupel in there. Even with some graupel the snow density has dropped notably from earlier today, coming in at 6.4% H2O vs. the 9.0% H2O found at the 5:00 P.M. observations. The snowfall rate is still probably light, but substantial enough that there was another tenth of an inch down by the time I headed back inside.

Details from the 11:00 P.M. Waterbury observations:

New Snow: 1.1 inches

New Liquid: 0.07 inches

Snow/Water Ratio: 15.7

Snow Density: 6.4% H2O

Temperature: 21.2 F

Sky: Light Snow/Graupel (1-3 mm flakes)

Snow at the stake: 16.0 inches

Depending on what you're looking for in a town, Woodbury, parts of East Montpelier, Calais and Worcester are great in Washington. In Lamoille, Elmore, Wolcott, parts of Morristown and Hyde Park are what I'm most familiar with. Of course there is Stowe and Waterbury but I prefer a bit further north.

Just went out for one final measurement before heading to bed. 4" and still snowing lightly.

Just for you Cold Front, I went for a ride from my house tonight and actually passed the groomer. The snow is soft but it was nice to do a little shakedown ride of about 15 miles.

Pretty much 3" on the nose in Stowe Village total. Snow depth of 16" in the yard.

3-4" up at 1,500ft as a best estimate. Blowing hard and still snowing up here this morning. Drifting is severe. Huge drifts up the sides of buildings exposed to the north.

4.8" so far this morning and still snowing lightly. CAR is reporting a foot in Bar Harbor and 15" near Machias. Quite a sharp gradient as you head southeast from here, as was expected.

8" at sugarbush and still snowing very lightly. Unless it stopped overnight, it's been snowing constantly since 10 am yesterday. Heading to the slopes early for first lift up. Record crowds up here this weekend.

Storm total 4.5" with 0.29" LE, pretty well pegged by GYX on their late morning revision yesterday. Nice fluffy stuff and quite pretty, though the increasing wind is blowing it out of the trees.

Event totals: 5.9” Snow/0.33” L.E.

I’d still call the snowfall light in intensity, but flake size is definitely up now and it’s accumulating more easily. Snow density has dropped way down like we typically see from upslope snow.

Details from the 7:00 A.M. Waterbury observations:

New Snow: 2.7 inches

New Liquid: 0.07 inches

Snow/Water Ratio: 38.6

Snow Density: 2.6% H2O

Temperature: 16.2 F

Sky: Light Snow (3-10 mm flakes)

Snow at the stake: 19.0 inches
