Just got done shoveling and man its awesome having to only deal with a few inches of light, fluffy snow. Usually those of us on the coast end up with the classic pastejob in feb/march but thankfully not the case today. Give me a few more of these and we'll call it a season haha..gratz to everyone else who ended up with a nice refresher :)

Didn't bother to measure, but can't have been much more than a half inch.

ok no problem..it was more than that most likely though before it melted and the zr compacted it along with the solar heating of the feb sun angle. I have spotter in Hamden who came in with 1.2. I had 1.2 as well. So probably around there. I was just curious if you measured...and how it compared. When i checked after noon i had 0.5 so lots of melt after the main batch of snow ended.

2.75".  Lovely.  Everything is Gorgous.  Just drive around , everything right down to how the piles smoothly all to the road, the new snow covering the piles like a blanket.  
 

Best snow piles in the yard since April 2015.  Looks like a 24" Blizzard just hit.  13" Depth, 18" in at 3 storms.

Cool. Yeah I was out and about in New Haven for most of the day, so didn't have a chance to get home before the melting and zr did their thing. Btw, do you have a sense of what our seasonal average snowfall is just inland? I figure New Haven is somewhere in the upper twenties, so maybe low thirties? Solid season this year, despite the January bust.

So 5 hours later Winter is no longer giving you the finger.  It is amazing how a little snow can improve the mood.  Go play.

 

2.9 inches new here.

Nice refresher of 3.5”. Enjoyable even though it was on the lower end of expectations (I was expecting 3-5” here for the last couple of days). 

Pack is getting impressive with those 4 consecutive snow events (1/26, 2/1, 2/7, 2/9) totaling 31 inches.

Ive always wondered that. Here's what i do know.. BDR normal is 27.6". For the past 20 years their average is 38.7". The only two climo sites in CT are BDL/BDR. 

I figure if BDR is 27.6 were at least in the 30st. Ive just assumed 35". I think ~8" higher than BDR is reasonable. However for the last 20 years id say were close to 45".

If you look at this image you can see we (North Haven/Hamden) are on the boarder between the light pink and dark pink which would be around 35". The hills of Hamden Id say would be around 40" and the far southeast side of North Haven closer to 30". Theres a really sharp gradient between the coast and inland from BDR to DXR and HVN to MMK. This climo is old though so it doesnt take into account the last 20 years which were very good. Ive always seen this photo get thrown around since i was a kid in the early 2000s so its at least 15-20 years out of date. So take it with a grain of salt.

I saw lakeville like 1.5”. Must have been just far enough north. 

Definitely some weird totals around here.  Bands were hits or miss and looked convective.  I got about 7” OTG now.  What’s making this feel different is everything is still caked on the trees from the last storm and hasn’t melted.

15.5 here most since March 18

Yeah this is the most since Mar ‘18 here as well. I think we peaked at 27 or 28” that month. We have a legit chance to pass that if we can cash in on one of these larger threats coming up. 

But this one has a much better chance at being the longest sustained pack since 2015. Recent years since 2015 have been pretty cruddy during mid-winter so we’ve melted down to bare ground easily. This one started 1/26 here, so we’ll see if we can run the table  into 2nd half of March or better.

It hasn’t rained up here since the Grinch Storm I think, at least at elevation.  We had that one wet snow event that was paste above 1,000ft and white rain (but always wet flakes) below in January.  But this 4+ week run without rain or even much above freezing at all has been very fun.  Will have to check the stats on the temps though.
