Spring Snows


Fresh totals of ~2-5" are coming in at resorts across northern New England. Expect additional light snow early Sunday with increasing sunshine (and wind) through the afternoon. Some light snow returns on Monday into Tuesday.


Radar animation on Sunday morning ending at 7:45AM. 

Light snow continues across the North Country on Sunday morning associated with our late spring storm. Several inches of snow piled up across the Greens, Whites, and into Maine on Saturday afternoon and overnight into Sunday morning with reports ranging from nothing to ~3-5". 

The weather service has received surprisingly few reports associated with this event with only a few reports of ~2-4" over in western Maine. Mt. Washington checked in with 4.1" on their summit in the last 24 hours and the Hermit Lake SNOTEL site near Tuckerman Ravine is showing 9cm new (3.5"). Over in Vermont, Stowe reported 3", Smuggs in at  5", and Jay had 4". A dusting to as much as 1-2" is possible across the North throughout Sunday with increasing sunshine and gusty west winds into the afternoon. 

GFS model forecast animation for 8AM Monday through 8AM Tuesday.

For all the hype of an early week storm in previous forecasts, the trend really hasn't been our friend in the North Country. The weather is looking pretty quiet, but cloudy for much of northern New England as we head through at least Wednesday although there is some uncertainty. A storm will slide across the southern Tier of New York though and bring a mix of rain and snow to the Poconos, Catskills, Berkshires, and much of southern New England on Monday into Tuesday. As of right now it looks to remain south, but some members track slightly farther north and bring a few more inches of snow with it. 

GFS model positive change in snow depth through 8AM Tuesday.

At least according to the GFS model, snowfall with this event is looking pretty thin across southern areas and falls heaviest in the Catskills where ~1-3" is possible. Less totals pop up in the Berkshires at an 1". If the track of these storm deviates slightly farther north, then a couple of inches of snow is not out of the question along the Greens in Vermont. 

ECMWF ensemble grid for 24-hour snowfall through 10 April.

The odds for light snow in Vermont show up in the ECMWF ensemble grid with 24-hour snowfalls remaining fairly light on average on Tuesday, but with at least ~10 members (20%) suggesting that 2" is possible; however, a majority have <2" or nothing.

The grid also shows additional light snows are possible on Wednesday night as a cold front sweeps the region. Any snows will be short duration and could have some squalls. Beyond Wednesday, the ECMWF model has several additional chances of snow (or rain) in both the ensemble and the deterministic through early April.
