What a day.  Mansfield looking towards Jay Peak with the cliffs of Smugglers Notch in the foreground.

Beautiful mountains.  Everyone once in a while, I'll get a good look at the west side of Sugarbush/Mt. Ellen, similar to how you're seeing Jay Peak.  It's a magical look.

The Euro goes into the low to mid 60's in the CPV with 40's-50's east of the spine perhaps.


Well I'll be the optimist and say this doesn't happen. Twice now in last few weeks models had big warm up and both were muted. But no snow chances is getting old quick.

There is zero optimism left here in the CPV. That is unless you are hopeful for 1000 days between warning events.

At this point its like a watched pot never boils type of thing. 

Angry inch of snowfall overnight at Stowe...thinking we can get 2-3" out of this today.

Yeah we have around an inch here as well.  Wintry appeal at least.

A buddy posted this of his yard in Eden, VT...a couple towns north of MVL on RT 100.

Eden gets a ton of snow.

that's an impressive amount of snow.  Hard to believe there is such a disparity in snow cover in such a small state.

Yeah he's in those hill towns with 12-18" on the ground.  

There's a huge range up RT 100 right now...from like 7" in Stowe to 20" in Westfield about 45 minutes north on 100.  Eden is like halfway there.

PF may see a good burst soon. We just had a few snow showers come through with solid dendrites.

Great stretch of snow at Whiteface depsite not the best pattern, another 6 inches so far thanks to clipper / les / upslope. they are crushing last years totals with 152 inches so far, they average 230 or so.

Very nice. Can't wait to get on the mountain on Friday. Anyway today's wintry appeal counts as a small win :)

Actually was 2.7" at home once I actually measured it.  Eyeball was pretty close.  

After all the upslope this synoptic snow is definitely the fluffiest we've seen in the last week.

Backyard stake at 10" now...first double digits in a long time, possibly first of the year I'll have to check.

Event totals: 1.6” Snow/0.06” L.E.

 

We picked up a tenth of an inch of graupel overnight, and according to the BTV NWS forecast discussion this was still in association with our most recent system so I’m adding it to that total.

 

Details from the 6:00 P.M. Waterbury observations:

Wow. I never noticed his stake depth being 6". I'm up to 10" and the bottom 8" you can literally jump on without cracking it.

I think it's been all fluff there. Seems like he cannot get above 6"for the season.

You guys got a lot more of the sleety events and that heavy wet snowstorm where tamarack had two feet with 2" liquid.

Its like every season we figure this out.

JSpin is right on the line...there's grass showing like a couple miles away, while I've got 8-10" but my walk-on layer is about 3-4" thick.

Just living on the edge of the brown Champlain Valley...not necessarily fluff.
