From Matt Noyes right now... Enjoy guys. nice to hear and see high totals again

http://www.facebook.com/MattNoyesFanPage

"One of the hardest events in New England...upslope snow accumulations along the west slopes of the Green Mountains of Vermont. Sometimes you nail it, sometimes it catches you by surprise. Just got a report of 7"+ at Smugglers Notch since last night, still coming down - National Weather Service just issued a Winter Storm Warning til 4pm Thu for 8-14" in the high terrain from Newport to Stowe, Montpelier, Underhill and Bristol. The radar beam cuts off in the Green Mountains, but gives the idea of the snow falling furiously in VT:"

I don't usually watch NECN because they are so southern New England-centric but I do really like Matt Noyes. He's usually spot on when talking about weather up here.

When I shoveled my driveway around 5 this afternoon the snow depth was around 5". Tonight at 9-ish there was an additional 6 and still coming down. Wonderful powder! Where did it come from though? NWS had called for snow showers 2-3" daytime and 1-2" overnight.

I agree too. I dont use or watch NECN but I like Matt. I also realize how hard it is to forecast an entire region as opposed to being focused on a specific location. There's so much you have to look at and so time consuming.

Sweet... yeah if you look at the surface map there's no Low pressure. Its no Lake effects either. Its basically an upper level trough. (a low pressure up above instead of surface) .. Upslope effect has a lot to do with it too.

Good technicals with BTV I'll post the entire paragraph:

AS OF 633 AM EST THURSDAY...WINTER STORM WARNINGS CONTINUE UNTIL 400 PM FOR THE WEST SLOPES OF THE GREEN MOUNTAINS AND THE WESTERN PORTIONS OF WASHINGTON...LAMOILLE...AND ORLEANS COUNTIES. SNOW REPORTS FROM YESTERDAY INDICATE ANYWHERE FROM 4 TO 12 INCHES OF SNOW HAS FALLEN IN THE WARNING AREA AND UPSLOPE CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE FOR MUCH OF THE DAY. WINDS WERE WEST-NORTHWEST LAST NIGHT AND HIGH FROUDE NUMBERS INDICATING UNBLOCKED FLOW HELPED PRODUCE HEAVY SNOW OVER THE ENTIRE WARNING AREA...BUT THIS MORNING WE ARE NOW SEEING LOW LEVEL FLOW BECOMING MORE NORTHWEST AND WITH THE FROUDE NUMBER DROPPING BELOW ONE...THE FLOW WILL BECOME BLOCKED AND WE WILL SEE MORE ACCUMULATING SNOWS ON THE WEST SLOPES OF THE GREEN MOUNTAINS. AS A RESULT...HAVE TWEAKED SNOW TOTALS TO INDICATE A GENERAL 8 TO 16 INCHES OF SNOW OVER THE WARNING AREA...BUT 10 TO 20 INCHES ALONG THE WEST SLOPES OF THE GREEN MOUNTAINS. THE SNOW WILL REMAIN ON THE FLUFFY SIDE...THUS LEADING TO THE HIGH SNOW TOTALS. OTHERWISE...LOOKING AT A GENERAL 1 TO 4 INCHES OF SNOW TODAY OVER THE REMAINDER OF THE NORTH COUNTRY WITH THE LEAST AMOUNT OF SNOW DOWN ACROSS RUTLAND AND WINDSOR COUNTIES.

Posting this here to to give you guys a heads up.. stay off the roads after 6pm Saturday if you're east of the Appalacians!

Latest NAM snow depth to Sunday mid morning.


NAM "usually" overdoes precip amounts but got it right for the blizzard and we just dont know until its happening. but the gist of it is here. Snow should start Saturday evening

Well I'm glad someone got some decent snow. We got 2" at the cabin and 3.5" at 3000' up the mountain from us.

Its very nice to see BTV add southern Vermont. i wish all NWS offices would do that when storm time comes. For instance, bottom half of CT is with Upton NWS NY. North Central and Eastern CT is with Boston. and NWCT is with Albany. lol

Looks like 7-10" will be common north of CT/MA border into southern VT and NH and ME

Good timing since the bulk will fall Sat night into Sunday morning. So Heads up after Lunch Saturday.
