January 12-14 Kitchen Sink Storm Discussion

Recommended Posts

Had 2.21" RA by 7 AM, and that plus fog and 40s chopped the pack from 18" to 10"; so much for my prediction of <3" loss.  As usual, any back end snow makes a non-appearance here.  There are little frozen things falling, but after 90 minutes they haven't even covered the ground yet.  Still hoping to get enough so that the surfaces here aren't glare ice tomorrow.  Temps slowly faded from mid 40s to mid 30s by sunrise, and in 4 more hours all the way to about 30, with winds gusting maybe 15 - frontal passage here was pure meh.

We power again. Down to 24F and FEW skies.

when I look out the window I get the false sense that it’s March. The pack has that overly emaciated look. Just measured 4” out there...so we lost a good 14-16”. Finished with 1.89” of rain...0.99” before midnight and 0.90” afterward.

Holy crap! Is that an ice chunk? Looks like concrete lol.


.

It is an ice chunk. It is flat on one side because it was up against a concrete wall before the ice broke up.

Flood warning for an Ice jam on the Quinebaug River in Thompson CT/Dudley Ma line. From pictures and video I have seen it appears to be a 1/4 jam.

How high is the water at the dam? Is jt worth riding up there to see it?

I'm excited to see your pics of the glaze later....few aspects of weather are so beautiful.

When I told him it was sunny here he didn’t believe me.  I’m to his southwest and nothing came through here heading his way but bright sunshine and windy cold weather...no Freezing Rain for him.

Warren NH  radar says nothing  but i cant see more than 300 feet, white out conditions and sun is trying to come out

Once it transitions to upslope snow showers, you are rarely going to see it on our radar. The snow is too shallow and our beam too high to see anything.
