Speaking of surprised... This storm is an overachiever. 1-3" fell in CT and MA, impressive for October.


4" in Wilmington Vermont so far

5:55pm radar and storm reports last hour. You can see the snowfall total reports. Raining in Burlington. Another surprise. Are they supposed to switch to snow tonight?

Can see salt trucks on highway between exits 1 & 2 of I-91, in Brattleboro VT.
Power flickered here but is on, outages reported on FB in nearby towns.
As of 8:30 p.m. I measure (in my non-scientific fashion) 2.5" accumulated (can't guess what proportion melted already).

Pics from around 6 p.m. (is now too dark to take pics)...

Whoa! Stay safe and warm tonight. Somewhat unexpected for many and impressive. Nice pics!


Hartford 1.5" is the 3rd snowiest October on record now. Only 2011 and 1979 had more and those years ended up a lame winter. October snows = cursed.


I'll post the totals and stuff for VT tomorrow. I need a break


October 27, 2016 Snowstorm Totals for NWS Albany and NWS Boston coverage areas. Mostly 1-3" but I see 4-6" in VT and MA (Rowe, MA 6.0") WOW.





Todays min & max temps. Some areas warming up after 8pm but most of the day in the 30s in CT. That's a Mid Winter normal max

We got some snow overnight but nothing crazy, and it's turned to rain now...drove in to Richmond this morning and it was pure rain the whole way.

From checking the GMP (elec. co.) site, there were thousands of outages throughout the state overnight, into the morning-
and hundreds of people without power in Brattleboro. I lucked out this time, but it was a close one.

Posted my very rough, imprecise data to NWS Albany, on FB-
think this little fragment of data (measured 3" of snow accumulation around 11:30 p.m.) was mine

Cool. When you say "rough, imprecise" what exactly does that mean? Just curious. Did you physically measure or just look at an object or something? Was it after compaction maybe since you werent around during the storm or when it stopped? Do you have a snowboard or flat object to measure on?


Looking good at Stowe.
