Those are some great shots--thanks for posting them!

Just got back home.  Went from cool, dank, dreary up in Maine to a beautiful late fall date here at the Pit.  The wind really killed off the leaves--what a difference it makes with respect to the sun light into the house.

 

49.8/30

Post mortem,  it looks like the NAM did pretty darn well when employing/assessing what could take place given it's FRH data.  I'm not as privy to other model specifics heading into this thing, but the NAM was hammering height implosion then biasing (if not outright) several hours of QPF on the marginal-cold-frozen side ... which, then we add in terrain climo and boom. 

Wind has been entirely manageable if not pedestrian.  the average gust velocity has been ~ 48 mph on the coastal plain, and ~ 30 so far in the interior.   this per KTAN's web-site - there may be other sources that support/add/subtract from this... I am not personally aware if there is a climate assessment for wind, specifically, as it pertains to season and/or system-recurrences.  Like, 'what is the average backside gust' - i don't think i've ever heard of that..  Just from my experiences over the last three decades in SNE, this system is forgettable so far.  We'll see if the destablizatioin off of feeble late October insolation/heating can help this some... 

I'm pretty sure it's been done at some local offices, but I can't for the life of me find the articles/information. A sure fire rule of thumb is avoid HWW in NW flow. It's exceedingly rare to get criteria on NW flow.

That may be why it's so hard to find those studies because it's research by necessity maybe

I mean I can see grass poking through the snow by the gun back there... :bag:

Drifts are impressive for sure , you sure that's grass?

We thought you were talking all over VT since you said many reports of 12-18

In response to Hunchy who was talking about the wind causing waist deep drifts We knew he wasn't talking about the wind in YBY

Yeah, radar last night looked like they would do well.   I am a bit surprised at the 12"+ reports but it is a different world there

Stowe had 11

Jay was in a classic spot for this. Awesome westerly exposure and farthest north to get the synoptic deform precip enhancement the longest.

Awesome pictures of the snow (and Mr. Unpronouncable's garden, too). Looking forward to the first accumulating snow here (hopefully in November this year and then getting slammed for December, January....)
