Yowza! Wasn’t expecting this on the hill. Feel fortunate the snowblower could move it, 8” of heaaavy snow. Still on 32 and steady snow

noticeable difference at 1900’. We left Jay in wind driven heavy snow. Probably 8” there at close, but ripping and colder. The paste line was particularly noticeable about   500’ below the parking lot

Event totals: 3.5” Snow/0.81” L.E.

 

When I headed off to Burlington this morning, the snowfall was actually more intense and was made up of larger flakes than what I’d seen at home in Waterbury.  Visibility was actually pretty low at times on I-89, but driving was generally fine because the roads were just wet.  It snowed all day in Burlington at a pretty steady clip, but it was warm enough that it only seemed to accumulate to an inch or two.  The situation was essentially the same as I headed back to Waterbury this afternoon, with more intense snowfall out in the Champlain Valley, but we probably picked up at least as much of not more snow here at the house.  Perhaps our temperatures were a bit cooler.  We’re closing in on an inch of liquid here, and it’s been interesting to watch the snow to water ratio climb a bit at each 6-hour observation:

6:00 A.M.:  4.0 to 1, 25% H2O

12:00 P.M.:  4.9 to 1, 20.5% H2O

6:00 P.M.:  6.1 to 1, 16.4 % H2O

 

We’ll have to see what tonight’s snow brings, but based on what I’m seeing I’d suspect the next core to show a continuation of the trend.

 

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

New Snow: 1.1 inches

New Liquid: 0.18 inches

Snow/Water Ratio: 6.1

Snow Density: 16.4% H2O

Temperature: 34.5 F

Sky:  Light Snow (2 to 12 mm flakes)

Snow at the stake: 23.0 inches

 

 

Details from the 12:00 P.M. Waterbury observations:

New Snow: 2.0 inches

New Liquid: 0.41 inches

Snow/Water Ratio: 4.9

Snow Density: 20.5% H2O

I had the opportunity to sample the entire I89 corridor out on a site visit for work today.  Left home at 7:15 with 2” of paste here at 1200’ in E Montpelier.  Then headed north up to Lake Carmi.  Snowing pretty steadily and accumulating till about the Bolton Flats then really rain/snow mix was more prevalent.  Roads were fine except for a little burst of heavier snow south of St Albans where some glop was accumulating on the roads.  Could really see even with dense cloud cover that March sun angle was working because black pavement surfaces were noticeably clearer than newer lighter pavement sections during that heavier burst.  From Saint Albans on to Carmi and for the remainder of the morning just light snow/rain mix with no accumulation.

On my ride home, precip became steadier the further south but it still seemed pretty wet with not a lot of evidence of accumulation.  That changed on a dime around the Middlesex exit when clearly I entered a zone where heavy accumulating snow had fallen, I think where deformation band had setup during the morning. Then sat for 1 1/2 hr on the highway due to accidents.  Thick Compacted  slush all over the roads.  On arrival back in parking lot in Montpelier 6-8” on the ground.  Very wet.  At home about an hour ago I measured 12” compacted new.  That’s one measurement so am guessing at least 13 or 14” overall.

Interesting day, interesting storm.  We’ll see what round 2 holds.

What’s the word from Mansfield? I heard from a friend who skied today there was not much accumulation. 

Andre had 6" at 2pm and 7" at 4pm so it was half inch per hour rates.

Bolton Valley reported 5" at 3pm and Smuggs 7-9" at 4pm.

The mesoband was definitely south of I-89 and radar showed it well.

Here was the 2pm reading:

Summit station showing gusts to 80mph this evening so it's blowing all over now.  Probably going to be variable depths on trail with that wind.  Lots of scouring possible on trails with deep woods drifts.

Thanks.  I’m counting on upslope machine cranking tonight.

It was pretty intense for a good part of the morning in Montpelier. I work in the Pavilion Building and my window looks out at the new Taylor Street building. There were times this morning when the hillside across the river disappeared.

I live at 1250’ in Barre Town and would estimate we got a similar amount to you. I posted a picture of my back deck in the storm thread.

That was the hairiest approach on a plane I've ever had.  Kids crying, plane jumping what felt like 10-20 feet at a time, pilot circled and came in from SE into the NW wind.  Dumping snow in the wing lights...like end of the world scene at 2-4kft based on flight info screen.  Had 65mph headwind at 4,000ft.  Pilot came on and was like "Folks don't mess around.  Make sure your seat belt is tight." 

Pilot f'ing nailed it though. Couple inches of grease it looks like on the runway with snow falling sideways.

I'm assuming that was your BTV arrival and you've made it back to the promised land of the Green Mountains where snow falls by the foot?  If so, congrats, it's dumping out there!

Worst drive ever on 89 from 1130p-1am.  

Your zone seemed to be getting rocked.  Flake size decreased and wind increased by exit 10 and Shaws.  

I posted more obs in the main thread.

Another 1.5" last night.  Storm total 4.5".   One town south (Bristol NH)  had a dusting of slop yesterday AM and another dusting last night.  Big gradient through my area.

Congrats to areas NW.  I keep thinking of the NWS map just before the storm without an advisory or warning in the state of NH.  (No disrespect to OceanST whos a great Met.)

Absolute valley screw job below 1000ft. Maybe .5-1" max at 1k or lower. Thought some upslope would kick in over night even for valley floor, thinks temps were like 33-34F when best returns were overhead below 1k, also flow was little too blocked I guess and also best returns looked down in taconics in WMA/ENY and Rensselear Plateau in ENY. Every model had at least 4-6" at even the lowest elevations.

5.7" final here at my place.  Never seen such a dramatic difference in just 100-200ft of elevation, at least here in the valley.

1100-1150ft
