How often does Mansfield get first measurable before first freeze?

I don’t think it’s that rare.  I’ve seen it snow a few times at 33-34F in early October before it hits the freezing mark.  Get a rain to wet snow with a cold front type situation.  The summit doesn’t radiate at all, so it’s sort of like MWN that it’s often snowing or snow showers as the temp drops.  These coating to 1-2” though with CAA dropping temps aren’t *that* uncommon for first freeze.

Nice to run in coo, mornings. Been awhile since I did a morning jog.

A coworker sent video of it snowing above 3,300ft on the Stowe Gondola.  Picnic table snow.

Sugarbush’s cam at 4000ft is snowing.

On a beach looking at web cams and obs from friends back home… :weenie:

Thanks, I knew I wasn’t hallucinating. 

Sounded like dynamic cooling in they heavy squall got big fat aggregates flying down to that level.  You’d need a strong shower/squall most likely.  All the temps around it plummeted during heavy precip and they rose a bit afterwards again.

Very classic lowering of snow level in heavy precip, then back up as it wanes.  I’m such a nerd/weenie for this stuff… A classic temp graph of strong dynamic cooling… then temps rising again post heavy precip.

There’s accumulation down to about 2,000ft on the cams. About 500ft above the parking lot aggregates.

At 10:54 pm, the temperature at Boston had fallen to 49 degrees. That is the latest first 40s temperature on record. The old record was October 13, 2018. 6 of the 15 cases where the first such reading occurred October 1 or later have occurred since 2010. 4 of the last 5 years have seen the first 40s occur on October 1 or later. 

The mean first date has increased as follows during the last three base periods: 1971-00: September 18; 1981-10: September 19: 1991-20: September 23. Records go back to 1872.
