I hope everyone enjoyed this latest helping of snow. It certainly worked to recharge the snowpack or at the very least cover up the thick layer of ice on the ground. We got the expected widespread 6-12″ with varying totals within the range. The highest amounts in Vermont (12-14″) were around Walden, Greensboro, Marshfield and St. Albans. The highest amounts (9-10″) in northern New York were between Champlain & Plattsburgh.
Snow showers remain scattered overnight through early Thursday; additional accumulation will be light but still be careful of slippery spots. Meanwhile, skies stay cloudy with lows near 20°. Valentine’s Day will be quiet, apart from a few snow showers over the northern mountains. We’ll have some peeks of sunshine by the afternoon with highs around 30°. All in all, it should be a decent day to be outside enjoying the new snow.
Friday, scattered rain and snow showers will be here with highs near 40°. The day will be “yucky” for lack of a better term but it won’t be a soaking rain. I don’t expect the snowpack to get chewed up too terribly bad and any river flood threat will be limited. Looking ahead to the weekend, we’ll have a few snow showers early Saturday but most of the day will be dry and partly cloudy. Highs will be in the low 30s. Sunday looks good too, expect a mix of sun and clouds with highs in the upper 20s.
