NNE Winter 2012-13 Thread IV

Recommended Posts

They're not great here either but not terrible to take a ski tour on and give the dog a good run.  The wife puts the jacket on her.  :whistle:

The fields are shot though.  Blown bare.  As PF notes about ski trails, aspect makes a huge difference.  You can go over a small hill and it will be a world of difference in the amount of snow.

Lol, Nice dog, Those trails are not as bad as ours

 

They're better out in the woods but the road crossings are pretty rough.  That shot was from this past Sunday--t'was cold and windy as hell.

 

But yeah, what mreaves says--frozen up and rather firm.

Our trail system is pretty much fields and power lines so they take a beating, That does not help the hyfaxs, GYX has 2-4" here tonight, Should help if we can keep it

It's funny, the fields aren't really bare here.  We had some wind with the 'big' storm but not too much and then the following Monday, we had an inch or so followed by several hours of freezing drizzle which really put a cap on things.  It hasn't moved since.  Underneath the crust, the snow is actually quite powdery.

 

We went to Underhill last Saturday though and I could see how scoured the fields were headed that direction.

I'll take the under on those weenie amounts in the coastal counties. I'm not expecting much outside of higher elevations until you get deeper into the foothills. We'll see.

What IS that weird 4-6 right on the coast. I'd say Mt. Megunticook (Camden Hills S.P.) except that's farther north. Perhaps the roof of L.L.Bean?

MBY has been moved from the 4-6/6-8 boundary firmly into the 4-6 zone, and GYX's 6-hr snow tool gives Farmington 3.6" and Skowhegan, 25 miles ENE and lower in elev, 7.7". (And Rangeley, to the NW, 6.4".) Methinks S.Franklin is maybe progged for some mixed precip that some points eastward and the mts don't suffer.

BTV...we love when they throw the ski resorts some love. I gotta say in the 10 years I've lived up here their mountain forecasting has improved ten-fold...or at least gotten more attention than previously. I know a lot of folks who appreciate it and with quite a high population of recreational participants in the area, it makes sense. We've also started seeing 5-day mountain forecasts on local news, so there's definitely become more focus on those uninhibited areas where thousands of people play.

From the AFD...."By Wednesday night into the first half of Thursday overall coverage of snow showers should increase across our central and northern counties as occlusion trudges slowly east and increasingly moist/cyclonic flow develops across the area. A distinct surface trough passage will occur during this period along with developing blocked flow and warm thermal advection aloft. This all spells a decent 12-18 hour period of light to moderate snowfall in our favored upslope areas where some modest accumulations will certainly be possible above 2000 feet and at our northern resorts. Low level flow is west-northwesterly enough however that accumulations in the northern valleys will be considerably less. Further south only flurries expected."

Looks like my forecast will verify. Solidly rain here from the start. Hard to believe it felt like deep winter less than 24 hours ago. Sunday's snow seems like it was a week ago.

Light snow. Accumulating a white trace dusting on the edges of Mountain Rd and in the center strip, but going to have to come down harder to have any impact on the travel lanes.

Dusting up the deck here. Already an over performer in my pessimistic mind LOL.

8-16" is a good spot to start. We can increase snow amounts later if we have to.

Tonight: Light snow. Low around 19. Breezy, with a west wind 14 to 22 mph, with gusts as high as 32 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. Total nighttime snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.

Wednesday: Snow showers likely, mainly after 2pm. Cloudy, with a high near 20. Breezy, with a west wind 17 to 20 mph, with gusts as high as 34 mph. Chance of precipitation is 60%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible.

Wednesday Night: Snow showers likely. Cloudy, with a low around 10. Wind chill values as low as -7. Breezy, with a west wind 20 to 23 mph, with gusts as high as 46 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New snow accumulation of 3 to 5 inches possible.

Thursday: Snow showers likely. Cloudy, with a high near 24. Wind chill values as low as -6. Windy, with a north wind 20 to 26 mph, with gusts as high as 43 mph. Chance of precipitation is 70%. New snow accumulation of 3 to 5 inches possible.

Just took a measurement and it's a solid inch so far. 

 

Coming down and a crisp clip and still a ways to go by the looks of the radar.

 

Sou'west flow plus a little elevation makes for a nice event.

 

30F.
