From Meteorologist Steve Glazier:

Day four of the 'January thaw' continued Tuesday with morning temperatures about 30 degrees warmer than a typical start to a mid-January morning. The thaw began in the Champlain Valley Friday night, just briefly dropping below freezing Monday morning. Otherwise many consecutive hours above freezing took a bite out of the snow. In the images above you'll find the difference of the snow depth from Friday, January 10 to Tuesday, January 14. Here are some of the numbers:

January 10-14, 2014:

Average snow depth across the Northeast: 8.9" diminished to 6.2"
Average area covered by snow (Northeast): 87% diminished to 54%
Locally temperatures January 11-13 +26° to average*
*Blend of Burlington, Montpelier, Saranac Lake, Springfield, & Massena average temperature during the three day period.

In January 2013 the same thing happened, well slightly different. A six-day thaw took place just around this time of the month which took Burlington's snow depth from 10" to 0" from beginning to end.
