Storm still going.  Snowing steadily this morning at Stowe after another few inches overnight.

72 hours straight of snow.

Skylar is over. Congrats on Toby though.

Ha we'll just move into the next named storm.

Its definitely picked up again this morning, snowing 1/4sm to 1/2sm at times.  With the drop in temperatures the flakes are over to that high ratio upslope that you'll find with summit temps near 10F.

GFS actually keeps precip going into tomorrow morning possibly.  Hard to believe it started around dawn on Tuesday.

Anytime I hear the wind cranking up high on a cold day  I think of you getting slammed by upslope

No, I know.....not at all being defensive.

I'm serious.....would like analysis from someone skilled to corroborate.

I think it’s simple. You got a fluff job and the timing of your clearing probably allowed for primo stacking as the best bands moved in. I don’t think your measuring was flawed.

Don't be afraid to be honest...if you want to call BS, please do....I stand by it, and I think your work will confirm that.

Appreciate the analysis.

 

FYI...check out the Reading, MA coop for April 1997...total snowfall was 27", but max depth was 21".

My max depth was 23.7"..snowfall 31".

Earlier on this thread you told me your depth was 24 plus?

To answer your other question....I think April 1997 was much more impressive, but I enjoyed this one the most.

There is something about being the “lucky” unexpected one to jack. I remember feeling that, after the long duration Feb 2015 storm. I did not expect that much snow. I had to take a walk to admire what transpired.

That, and I was awake for the peak of this one.

I crashed at midnight with 1' in the ground in 1997.

3.62LE on 4/1 vs 1.7" on 3/13?

No contest, there.

BTW, I actually started suspecting my area was going to jack just before and as the event started....

1) It began as rain, which oddly enough excited me because I knew damn well KPYM wasn't going to jack and the system was a bit west and warmer than progged.

2) The death band moved near Montaulk PT, which is a pretty good proxy for systems that nail my area.

As an aside, I think this season would have made a run for the seasonal record had a weak el nino developed as I had thought last summer...no way we would have punted Feb.

This was the radar when Ray cleared....he cleared at the 5pm mark, and this is probably about 3-4 inches per hour type snow over him at the time so it was definitely a perfect time to clear to optimize high totals....
