Today is the 22 year anniversary of the ORH macroburst on 5/31/98. ASOS gusted near 100mph and a 104mph wind gust was recorded at holy cross. There were probably pockets of 110-120 based on the damage. 

I remember the event well. I think it hit between 10-11pm. Trees down everywhere the next morning.

That was a wild severe day across the northeast. I had my first ever flight that night out of BOS to MSP. I had like 5 hours worth of delays as our plane had a broken radar. I remember a squall hitting the airport sometime after sunset and the wind and rain roared against the glass windows. All flights since then have been pretty easy in comparison....lol.

56.2/33 at almost solar noon. Too cold for me for this time of year.

Cranky said no big deal. Temps in the 70s.

Getting several reports of Light Snow Showers from hikers on Mansfield. 

Station has been showing 32-33F up there. 

From an all-time record high of 85F down to freezing this morning with snow showers.   Crazy stuff.

We are up to 51F down here in the valley with partial sunshine.  More radar echoes crossing the Champlain Valley, probably a few more -SHSN for the higher terrain.

Throw in a rock slide for good measure up the road as it goes through Smugglers Notch.

Sounds like several very large boulders came down out of no where.

Do you know or recall if we had damage or strong winds in CT?

Yeah there was widespread damage. Not sure if Tolland got hit specifically but there were a ton of other hail/wind reports and even a few TORs. 

A massive derecho hit the Great Lakes before he system reached NE. 

Wiz and Ryan may know more about the CT-specific impacts from that event.

I don't need this to tell me to not go swimming if the water's cold.  :)

 

...National Weather Service Cold Water Safety Message...

...Please check with state and local authorities regarding
guidelines for allowed activities...

* The warm air temperatures today in the 60s may cause people to
  underestimate the dangers of the cold water temperatures which are
  currently only in the mid 50s across Sebago Lake and Lake
  Winnipesaukee, and in the mid and upper 50s in the regions smaller
  lakes and rivers.

* The cold water temperatures can quickly cause hypothermia to
  anyone immersed in the water. When the water temperature is below
  60 degrees, the average submerged person could loose dexterity
  within minutes and be unable to accomplish simple tasks. Anyone
  on small boats, canoes, or kayaks should plan accordingly if
  recreating this weekend and use extreme caution to avoid this
  threat. Paddle smart from the start and always wear your life
  jacket!

* Strong winds are also expected today with gusts between 25 and 30
  mph from the northwest. If boating on large bodies of water, these
  strong winds can increase the likelihood of overturning your
  boat,canoe or kayak due to increased wave heights.

I just went to investigate the rock slide on Mount Mansfield that hit RT 108 in the Notch and all I can say is holy f'in sh*t. 

I'll try to post some photos but two rocks hit the road (just went straight through the pavement and into the ground a couple feet) and about a half dozen others carved out swaths through the forest...snapping trees and leaving divots in the ground up to 5 feet deep and the size of garages.  That must've been terrifying... eye witnesses said it sounded like F-18s were flying through the Notch.  The power of that is unbelievable up in person.

A half dozen new slide paths were just created for skiing.  I'm no geologist but the theory would be the very massive temperature swings this month.  The ground wasn't even thawed up there when setting record all-time max temps and then it poured rain and went down to freezing... then the hillside gave way.

Yeah, I hiked West Baldpate in Grafton Notch today and got snowed on.  Took a few vids.  Folks that caught it at the summit described it as a blizzard with zero visibility.  We were still in the woods but it was pretty cool seeing legit flakes falling on May 31.  Wicked cold on the mountain with winds gusting to 30 or so and air temp prob upper 30s

Was wondering if there was any frozen with those showers. Looks like there is above about 3k

Yes definitely. Even before the sleet started here we could see the snow showers pretty well plus a dusting in the higher elevations.
