Check out Bolton, CT



Norfolk (The Ice Box of CT)





Norfolk Center from FD: Little lower elevation than above Norfolk location.





I'll post totals soon
I looked up about October snow in Boston, its weirder and more interesting than you think. Today was only the 4th time in their long record (from 1872 almost as old as Central Park) that measurable snow fell in October and get this....the other 3 all happened in the last 15 years!

Today is the first time more than 1.1" of snow fell in Boston in October (they got exactly an inch on October 29, 2011).

For Albany 3 of the Top 5 snowiest Octobers since 1884 came in the past 9 yrs.

Since NWS Albany covers Litchfield county maybe safe to say Litchfield also getting a lot of October snow recently.

I'm telling you... I been following it.. past decade has had early snow and cold records happening more often. Not same spot obviously but across the U.S. pretty interesting to see. #SolarMinimum

The 1st's In my backyard...


it's not often we can say we got the 1st snow before the first frost or freeze. This year we did it.
A late 1st frost but an early 1st snow.

25 in Hartford at 8:30 am. Channel 3 (CBS) said New Hartford and the Phoenixville section of Eastford got 6 inches of snow. The one plus out of all this was the drought-denting rain of WED-FRI. Today's snow melt should help that, too! The Mattabessett finally looks "healthy" near here.

BDR bottomed out at 31. While 1st freezing or below temperature in October is not uncommon (average date for BDR is November 3), it last happened in 2015, and before that the day of the 2011 snowstorm. I noticed that it was 32 on April 23, so depending on whether you define the "growing season" (the term used to describe the period in the year that is completely above freezing) as being above 32 vs. above 31 (I've seen both definitions given) it could be their shortest one ever in their record going back to 1948 (the last 31 or below this year for BDR was on March 22 so if you define it by 31 instead of 32 it probably isn't)

NYC Central Park was a little more historic (of course if the snow reached down to them (it got as far as southern/central Westchester as well as Newark and Islip) it would've been an incredible first time they saw snow in both May and October the same year), they bottomed out at 32, it's the first 32 or less in October since 1988 (coldest temp since the 2011 snow when it was 33), and the first time since 1978 that both May and October of the same year saw at least one low in the 30s.

BDL bottomed out at 21, which tied 1988 for coldest Halloween low.
