What a wild Wednesday night through Thursday for some of Vermont's northern mountains. 1-2 feet of snow fell for many communities nestled in the northern Green Mtns. Sure, this is nothing unusual, BUT when you consider regions only 10-15 miles away received 1-3" or less of snow!
It was a case of terrain this go 'round. A large low pressure system spun moisture into our region from the north and northwest. That moisture bumps in to the mountains, the mountains lift that moisture, it condenses, and squeezed out every last drop of liquid possible to produce nearly 30" of snow for some, like Westfield, VT. Check out the image to the left to see the 24-36 snowfall totals across northern VT (totals as of noon Thursday, with special thanks to the National Weather Service in Burlington).
