Looks like Champlain Valley convergence:

.NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/...

AS OF 632 AM EST SUNDAY...QUICK UPDATE TO THIS MORNINGS FORECAST TO DROP ADVISORIES AND WARNINGS FOR MOST OF THE AREA EXCEPT FOR THE IMMEDIATE VT CHAMPLAIN VALLEY WHERE LAKE EFFECT SNOW SHOWERS CONTINUE. NO OTHER CHANGES MADE AT THIS TIME. PREVIOUS DISCUSSION FOLLOWS...

COASTAL LOW PRESSURE WHICH BROUGHT ACCUMULATING SNOW TO THE NORTH COUNTRY YESTERDAY AND OVERNIGHT CONTINUES TO RACE NORTHEAST TOWARDS NOVA SCOTIA THIS MORNING. WHILE MUCH OF THE REGION HAS BEGUN TO SEE SNOW TAPER OFF...NORTHERLY CONVERGENT FLOW IN THE CHAMPLAIN VALLEY HAS RESULTED IN MODERATE LAKE ENHANCED SNOW SHOWERS ACROSS WESTERN CHITTENDEN AND ADDISON COUNTIES. THE COMBINATION OF EXCELLENT SNOW GROWTH AND SATURATED LOW LEVELS WILL CONTINUE THESE LAKE EFFECT BANDS ACROSS THE VERMONT SIDE OF THE CHAMPLAIN VALLEY THROUGH EARLY MORNING...BUT AS HIGH PRESSURE BEGINS TO BUILD IN FROM THE WEST...ALONG WITH SIGNIFICANT DRYING AT 700MB WE SHOULD SEE SNOW TAPER OFF BY MID- DAY. AS WE FEARED COULD HAPPEN...850MB FLOW HAS REMAINED TOO NORTHERLY AS EVIDENT ON KCXX VAD WIND PROFILE TO PRODUCE UPSLOPE SNOWS ACROSS THE NORTHERN GREENS WITH VERY LITTLE RETURNS NOTED ON RADAR AT THIS TIME. THERE STILL MAY BE A BRIEF WINDOW THIS MORNING WHERE WINDS SHIFT NORTHWESTERLY ENOUGH TO KICK AND INCH OR 2 OF SNOW OUT BEFORE ENDING...SO WE`LL KEEP ADVISORIES AND WARNINGS IN PLACE BUT WILL RE-ASSESS WITH THE NEXT UPDATE AROUND 7 AM.

We're currently getting some spillover here in Waterbury as well, moderate snow with flakes up to ¾” in diameter.

wow this is the heaviest snow I've seen even with the big storm on Thursday. Ridiculous snow growth! We must have an 8" total by now with 20" on the ground.

Yeah, we’ve already picked up another inch here since my report; quite a difference in the way this builds up relative to the flakes from yesterday.

I’ve put together the north to south listing of available 24-hour snowfall totals from the Vermont ski areas; the sweet spot for this event thus far seems to be the Central Vermont Ski Areas, although Smuggler’s Notch appears to have topped the enitre list and really stands out as far as the Northern Vermont resort totals go:

Jay Peak: 5”

Burke: 5”

Smuggler’s Notch: 15”

Stowe: 4”

Bolton Valley: 4”

Mad River Glen: 8”

Sugarbush: 8”

Middlebury: 8”

Suicide Six: 8”

Pico: 13”

Killington: 13”

Okemo: 6”

Bromley: 6”

Magic Mountain: 6”

Stratton: 7”

Mount Snow: 6”

Looking at the interactive snow model this morning and found that this is the most snow on the ground for this time period, end of December, in at least 10 years. I am also referring to most or all of New England too. It could be even longer than that, but the data ends there. We have 3 snow storms now without any melt. This is exactly the kind of winter I like. Even looking forward to the cold next week.

it was just in time for my trip to the north..thanks to the snow gods because 35 and overcast would have been a real bust...now we get a good surge of arctic air to finish the job...will bring back memories of my days at UW-Madison

That deathband sitting in the gulf of maine is epic... so many juicy yellow pixels.

Yeah, that was like dangling a juicy steak in front of a hungry pit bull.

We are up to 5" at the ski mountain now. Been snowing pretty steadily today but small flakes.

Smugg's online report shows 15" but their snow phone says 3-4". Interesting.

Yeah, let me know if you find out any news about that – I posted that snapshot from their snow report just in case it disappeared or something.

You know what's funny? My depth of 10" here on the water in CT is the same as LSC give or take. Never saw this coming. I love it!

Congrats down that way Ed, Looks like CT did quite well in some areas with this one

Thanks Jeff! Yeah, some areas just to my northeast by like 10 miles got a foot. Had those slight BL issues we discussed yesterday that held me down 1-3".

Around 8.5" was the ultimate total with 20.5" snow depth. It is absolute fluff so I expect it to settle a bit. As for moving here I wonder if that would jinx it LOL.

You must stay! I have the opposite effect. When I return on 1/20 we won't get an inch for the remainder of the season LOL

Still flurries here that is correct. Here are some pics.

Nice! Usually there is a noticible difference in snow depth between here and Williston/Burlington, not right now though. Nice that you can see Vermont at it's finest during your visit. :snowing:

Yeah, Around 900mb is was a little toasty for a time, That is always the fear when you see that being modeled, It can't be ignored although some do
