Snowing steady nice flakes in BTV. Not sticking to wet warm surfaces...oh wait...no that can't be correct. It must be sticking evenly everywhere.

A rough estimate of 1.8" new on top of the old pack here. Roads are starting to get slushy as I think the temp is finally going to start falling.

2.4" now and nuking

That's nice yellow on the radar.  No measurable snow down here.  Rain/snow mix at 35F right now.

At 4:30 pm, turned to all snow now.

Hinesburg Road closed in South Burlington due to accidents with cars off the road. The meltwater has now frozen under the snow on the roads. It is dangerous.

Nice Eyewall...sweet to see some action in BTV lately.

Eyeballing around 2" in Stowe so far.

 

Thank you and hopefully the froude is low enough overnight to top it off with a little more. I know you guys will do well.  Depth is 12" or so

4.7" and now down to sand grains falling. Not sure how much more we will get unless things can ramp up again.

Radar and a report from a friend in Colchester says barely anything falling from the sky in the Burlington area... and yet the WWA just flipped to a WSW calling for 4-8" through tomorrow night.

What gives?

I am guessing some redevelopment with the blocked flow. We shall see. It is also getting colder, so whatever falls will have better ratios.

5.7" of snow in Winooski as of 9:30pm. I should correct what I said earlier. It is about 13 inches deep before hitting the solid crust that was there before the 11" storm. Depth is probably closer to 15" in spots

I got about 6" new at my spot near Red Rocks Park. Everything is caked. Still some flakes lingering around. Looks like there was another 1" since I got home at 6:30 last night.

Event totals: 4.0” Snow/0.24” L.E.

 

It snowed pretty steadily in the Burlington area yesterday, and I’d say accumulations at UVM were similar to what I saw eyewall reporting by the time I left in the 6 to 7 PM timeframe – there was something in the range of 3-5” at my car.  Snowfall was generally light, but continuous right through to Waterbury on the drive home.  Roads were definitely snow covered, but snowfall rates were low enough that the salt and/or plows kept the road surface pretty pleasant.  Watching the web cam at the house during the day, I could see that snow was slow to pick up and start accumulating, but 2.7” were down when I measured the boards at 8:00 P.M.  There was another 1.3” at 6 A.M. observations time this morning, and the web cam shows at least an additional inch since then, so the current storm total is in the 5-6” range for our location.  Evening and morning observations are below:

 

Details from the 8:00 P.M. Waterbury observations:

 

New Snow: 2.7 inches

New Liquid: 0.17 inches

Snow/Water Ratio: 15.9

Snow Density: 6.3% H2O

Temperature: 27.0 F

Sky: Light Snow (1-5 mm flakes)

Snow at the stake: 19.0 inches

 

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

 

New Snow: 1.3 inches

New Liquid: 0.07 inches

Snow/Water Ratio: 18.6

Snow Density: 5.4% H2O

Temperature: 25.0 F

Sky: Light Snow (3-5 mm flakes)

Snow at the stake: 19.5 inches

NWS has reported 7.7 at BTV airport. So I am just a hair under them. For Winooski this is deep winter. I hope to get some pics a little later but we will see if the trees remain caked for a bit.

Made it up to Killington around midnight. Roads not bad at all. Hit numerous snow showers. Light snow now and the mountain reporting 3" overnight after 4" yesterday. Lifts turn in 25 minutes we are headed to the base!

temps in low 20s feels good.
