It's been almost full sun all morning here around New Haven. 

Breaks of sun and clouds here.  Looking forward to the next few days being a little warmer.

That's the most I could find for NH on cocorahs.  Saw 19.2" in Marlboro, VT - Windham County, 1482' elev.  Looks like an outlier; 2nd might've been Landgrove with 12" (can't recall the county.)

Measured 1.4" total, 0.7" at 9 last night and a repeat at 7 this AM as the snow was tapering off.  Storm total was 1.08" with 0.28" from accumulating snow and 0.80" from RA and melt-on-contact snow, which was mainly 10:30 A to 2 P yesterday.  Must've switched to RA during the night as the morning 0.7" had 0.10" LE and the bucket held 0.36".  Got into Farmington by 7:45 this morning and saw less there than at my place, while Temple at 1220' reported 8.3", tops for Maine cocorahs.

Yeah, looks like the report from “Gorham” up at 3,700’ at Hermit Lake didn’t come in this time (shut down for season I guess), and that’s usually the only station that beats Randolph in the area.

Today would normally be one of those unbearable April days that you can't get warm and spend your afternoon in a shawl looking at Zillow, but with full snow cover it's downright balmy.

Edit just glanced at BOX and yikes I guess it helps we don't have that here

Looks like ALY may have tossed that 19.2" from Marlboro VT Cocorahs, they didn't include it in their PNS from 1145AM.

haha...I am literally the only snowless spot on that map over that large area of cover. Payback for December.

Not my best work, as I blew the higher terrain south of the pike....should have done the Final Call.

The rest of it was fine, albeit still a bit low in n ORH CO.

Spring Nor' Easter Forecast Verification

A major premise of the forecast was that the higher elevations to the south of the Mass turnpike would not accumulate more than 2" of snowfall due to the fact that the dry slot would punch into the area shortly after the heavy precipitation changed over to snowfall during the early morning hours of Saturday.

Eastern Mass Weather Forecast Snowfall
 
However, there was ample support amongst guidance to suggest that dynamics would be sufficient as to advect colder air aloft down to elevations above 500' or so via the evaporational cooling process. This proved correct, as rain changed to snow across the higher terrain of northern CT shortly after midnight, and accumulated several inches in some locales that were only forecast to receive up to 2" of snow.

Despite the rest of the forecast working out fairly well, this was a major flaw and detracts a great deal from the quality of the overall forecast.
 
Final Grade: C
