NNE Winter 2014-2015 Thread Part 2

Recommended Posts

Frustrating clouds ruined the -40 last night.  Was on target for some extreme cold but ended up with -2.6

 

On to the next disappointment.

 

Well eek maybe we will do better than Boston on this one.  I don't get the Euro but from Brian says in the other thread we may do okay. After the trend of the GFS I was kind of settling for 2-4" or 3-6".  Light snow is picking up right now and we have a patch coming in from West Mass.  Curious to see how much the new Euro has for us.  Hint.....Brian?  what we got?

Looks like gyx shifted heaviest precip SE. Solidly in 10-14", down from 14-18". Honestly could have passed on this event. Wanted to take the wife snowmobiling tomorrow, now a full day of inside house duties. Ugh.

I noticed at 4pm Brian had only a couple of tenths of snow when I had over an 1".   Couple of hours ago I drove to Bristol which is probably 600 feet lower than me.  Hardly snowing.  Drove back up the hill and the snow was coming down much harder.  Wonder in low dewpoints if snow sublimates that fast especially with such small flakes?

Been snowing for 12 hours in stowe..maybe 3 inches..no breeze, yet. Skiing tomorrow should be interesting.. Lets see if they can keep the lifts open in the wind.

I have 1.9" at 7:15pm. Wind will be interesting tomorrow for sure.

Details from the 1:00 P.M. Waterbury observations:

 

New Snow: 0.6 inches

New Liquid: 0.04 inches

Snow/Water Ratio: 15.0

Snow Density: 6.7% H2O

Temperature: 17.2 F

Snow at the stake: 19.0"

 

Details from the 10:00 P.M. Waterbury observations:

 

New Snow: 0.5 inches

The latest advisories and projected accumulations maps are below – there's not much change in the projected accumulations for this area, but we'll certainly have to get some additional snow to get into that range.

Thought this was neat.  Looks like a tiny patch of shadowing off the Ossipee mountains.

Some enhancement immediately downstream of that too...almost like a standing wave pattern. Cool.

Wind? How about brutal temps as well. Takes a serious toll on equipment.

Equipment? Only equipment I'm worried about is my nose freezing off. I'm going to head out in about an hour but have a feeling this will be a short lived ski day.

2.8" here for the event with 0.23" of water.

 

There're still some grains in the air but it for all intents & purposes, it seems to be over but the wind.  Howling!

 

Started the day at 8F, now 3F.

 

Crazy stuff down in SE Mass....

Bolton is very prone to wind hold and Timberline is on wind hold this morning (the best part of the resort IMO).

Wilderness is now also on wind hold at Bolton. That leaves 1 main lift left (Vista). It is also -10 at the base.

Not sure I've ever seen a bust like this. Was under a blizzard warning for Sunday morning with 14-18, 24 hours ago and this morning have a half inch, brilliant sunshine and light winds. Incredible.

I feel your pain, we deal with busts like that in the tropics often..then again when we see a tstorm coming off Africa the Atlantic action thread starts lighting up with conjecture, lol
