New England Daily Snow
By Jay Cordeira, Meteorologist Posted 3 months ago November 27, 2023
4-6" of new snow blanketed the higher summits of resorts in Vermont and New Hampshire with lower totals at lower elevations. Upslope snow showers will persist through the week.
Short Term Forecast
Sunday night's storm arrived a couple hours earlier than expected and produced more (wet) snow than anticipated in some locations. A powder alert was pushed before 6AM on Monday morning with a report from Killington of 7". A few other resorts in Vermont also reported early with 6" at Smuggler's Notch, 10" at Sugarbush (see below), and 8" at Stowe. Snowfall varied drastically as a function of elevation with totals likely less than half these amounts at bases. For example, Stowe's snowboard/webcam showed less than 4" (see above). These numbers are higher than the originally anticipated 2-4" by our weather models and more-or-less in line with Sunday's OpenSnow blended forecasts of 6-7" in Vermont.
Webcam animation of snow depth increases at Sugarbush from ~2-3" to ~12-13" overnight into Monday.
Resorts in New Hampshire and Maine have yet to report in as of 7AM Monday, but it looks like they may have received a bit less snow than originally anticipated. Estimated totals there are ~2-4" with a few totals >5-6".
National Weather Service snowfall reports as of 7AM Monday.
The coastal storm responsible for Sunday night's snow is pulling away from the region on Monday. Temperatures will be at their high in the morning and drop throughout the day as a brisk northwest winds pulls in cooler air.
Lake-effect snows across New York and snow showers are expected to develop across at least western New York throughout Monday with the best shot at accumulating snows into Vermont on Tuesday. Widespread snow showers and some snow squalls may produce a quick inch with totals of 1-3" in the Greens.

Several "pieces of energy" (i.e., upper-level shortwave troughs) and a weak area of low pressure will pass over New England during the upcoming week. Together these will produce widespread snow showers and localized upslope snows, especially in the northern Greens where snow is possible in almost every 12-hour block in the forecast up at Jay.

Outside of the favorable upslope resorts, Wednesday and Thursday look fairly quiet, with that weak area of low pressure bringing snow chances to lower elevations across New England into Friday and next weekend.
Next update will likely be on Wednesday.
