NNE Winter 2012-13 Thread III

Recommended Posts

Had some ZR last night with a little ice accumulation--the front steps got a little slick and still are this morning.

 

That surely won't last very long though.  Up to 33F at 7am this morning and things dripping just a bit now.  It's been quite a while since we've been this warm...

 

The only good thing with this kind of weather in my book is that the truck should see a nice washing--get rid of that nasty f*cking salt.  ;)

Agreed for the most part, though it does look there are a few chances for 2-4 type snows.  Maybe this breaks with a big one mid-february

 

'Fraid I'm thinking more along the lines of Jeff's avatar, maybe a 2006 redux - near normal temps for Feb-Mar and 6" snow (total for the two months, instead of the avg 38".)

 

Perhaps 0.05" accretion this morning, and temps low 30s after 9 straight mornings with lows between 2 and -16.  An inch of 45F RA with strong winds tonight will just do wonders for the snowpack (and logging roads.)

Not one record low set in that "arctic outbreak". Already several record highs set today.

 

That's a great point... albeit depressing one, haha.

 

Absolutely torching at the summits... Mount Mansfield at 46F at 3,950ft, and 43F at 3,600ft. 

 

Already beat the record high on Mansfield by 11 degrees today, and only 5F away from breaking the all time January high temp.

LOL-morning classes cancelled here. If this keeps I might only have 50% of my classes.

LOL  Wife said she is wearing the wrong shoes while walking around campus, looks like the cold held on longer there than over at the house.

Mid 40s and had a couple showers move through so far. Streams are starting to run on top of the ice. Going to be interesting during the heavy rain later. Water already ponding between the snowbanks that are rock hard from the last thaw.

Hanging at 40 now.  Warm but relatively cool compared to the other side.  Yikes.

They're hard to break here unless we get a real wicked one.  That being said, it was still arctic air that we had.

34.0F...nothing too bad yet, but it's coming. The sfc warm front is through the Derry RWIS site nonw and higher els and north of the Whites are torched. It's days like this that make me like my spot in winter. It's days like this that make me hate it in the spring.

Interesting to see how the cold is holding in South eastern NH over into ME.  I betting there will still be snow cover in my hood by tomorrow night. Gonna be hard to wash away 6" of solid pack with a little rain and and short lived torch.

Temp continues to slowly fall.   32.2F   Brian,  we sure are in a great place for CADaming.   My snowcover is solid.  I can't see 12 hours of even 50F doing much. Probably some bare spots on my southfacing areas that just had the powder from the other day but we will come through this with solid snowcover.  When the inversion breaks it will get wild.  Facing SW and at 1100 feet  (600 feet higher than surrounding areas) wonder if I will score some big gusts!  Interesting 18 hours coming up....and as I type we come out of the dense fog and temp rises .5F to 32.7F

Well 12hrs of 50/50 and rain will do a number on the snow. I'm just hoping to fight the tropics as long as I can and then to keep most of the rain to our west. There may be a period tomorrow morning that we get some melting with sun, post frontal...especially in the lower elevations. I think we fall toward 32F at some point midday, but we'll have to see how much damage is done. It'll be interesting to see if you mix out at 1100ft first or if I do further south at 615'. It'll probably be me as usual. An interesting station to watch is the Woodstock RWIS site...they've been a hair below 32F all afternoon and are typically one of the last to mix out.

57 at Whitefield.  :sizzle:

 

Downslope, ftl.

 

Crazy that they're one of the real cold spots on those highly radiated, stratified mornings...

Temp has finally quickly started to rise.  7F rise past 30 minutes to 39F now! Wind is SW at 2mph.   My dirt road is an absolute sheet of ice.  

I see it's up to 41F there now. Still 34.3F here, but a deer fart may be enough to mix us out now.

I was just checking out the BTV afternoon forecast discussion and saw that there’s the potential for 1-3” of snow tomorrow.  That would certainly be nice because when the snowpack hardens back up it’s going to need a serious freshening.  Tomorrow is the last chance for additional January snowfall, but barring substantial changes in the forecast, this January will come in as the lowest in my records.  Snowfall for the month so far is 21.8”, so it will be tough to surpass the current lowest January, which is January 2008 with 27.6”

 

Excerpt from the forecast discussion is below:

 

.SHORT TERM /6 AM THURSDAY MORNING THROUGH FRIDAY NIGHT/... AS OF 252 PM EST WEDNESDAY...BY THURSDAY MORNING...MDLS DO CARRY LOW TRACK CLOSE TO THE CANADIAN BORDER...PUSHING MAINLY EAST THRU THE DAY. FRNT WILL CLR THE CWA BY MIDDAY THURSDAY WITH WINDS SHIFTING TO MORE WNW. THIS WILL USHER IN ANOTHER SHOT OF CD AIR FOR THE AREA...REINFORCED BY UPPER TROUGH COMING DOWN FROM CENTRAL QUEBEC THRU FRIDAY. PRECIP THURSDAY MORNING WILL BEGIN TO SHIFT FROM -RW TO -SW AS COLD AIR FILTERS SOUTH AND EAST. DO EXPECT LIGHT SNOW ACCUM TO OCCUR THRU PERIOD WITH 1-3" POSSIBLE...W/ HIR AMTS OVER HIR ELEV/NW FACING SLOPES. BROAD UPPER TROUGH REMAINS OVER THE NORTHEAST FOR FRIDAY AND MUCH OF FRIDAY NIGHT. WITH CD POOL IN PLACE DURING THIS TIME...KEEPING CHANCE FOR -SW.
