Good Monday morning!
I hope you made it to your destination safely this morning, as a fresh coat of snow was observed across the region. This was a well-advertised storm system that panned out very well in terms of forecast and lead time.
On Friday last week our SkyTracker Meteorologists promoted a 1-2" snow accumulation for the Champlain Valley and areas west into the Adirondacks, while 2-5" was forecast east of the Champlain Valley through central/eastern Vermont and New Hampshire. This is pretty much what we got, which is good news! There, of course, was the variability we get here across the North Country where our actual totals ended up being a dusting to six inches.
We stayed on the cold side of this storm, relatively speaking. Enough warm air snuck into the system that were able to get periods of sleet, freezing rain, and rain. That knocked down our snow ratios to about 5:1 to 15:1 when converting the precipitation to snowfall total.
The ground looks nice and white now, but this is going to be gone in a days' time. By Tuesday afternoon, or even morning, the snow will be a memory as moderate to heavy rain moves through. Our area is in the midst of an active weather pattern with an area of low pressure moving through last night through
