Bring on the snow! Friday, Saturday, Sunday in Vermont

Check out this weather forecast for Stowe, Vermont. It's a thing of beauty. Flakes, flakes and more flakes!

Snow forecasted for northern Vermont

Yes, snow is on its way again after a weird week where we lost a bunch of snow on one day (we were looking at the grass again here in the Burlington area), and we woke up to a couple of inches of snow the next day.

Jeffersonville, Vt., near Smuggler's Notch, picked up 7 inches and Waitsfield, near Sugarbush, picked up 6 inches from that storm. Up at the mountain at Sugarbush, they are reporting 10 inches of snow over the last 48 hours. And now more is on the way.

This is what the National Weather Service has to say (in their lovely all-caps kind of way):

"...ANOTHER WINTER STORM WILL IMPACT PORTIONS OF THE NORTH COUNTRY FRIDAY AFTERNOON INTO SATURDAY MORNING..."

Yay!

I thought I'd pass along some cool Vermont ski weather links since we're on the topic.

This one gives the "higher summits forecast" for northern Vermont and New York: http://www.erh.noaa.gov/btv/mountain/

It also says there are 29 inches of snow at the stake atop Mt. Mansfield. Nice.

The following one had some surprising information. It shows the median snowfall on Mt. Mansfield as measured  over the last 30 years: http://www.erh.noaa.gov/btv/climo/snowclimo/MMNV1_snowfall.png

Turns out that December and January are tied for the highest median snowfall—41 inches.

It's fun to poke around the weather site. On my Vermont ski resorts snow report links page, there's a link to NOAA's daily snowfall tallies. It gets updated in the morning sometime after 7 a.m.

Looks like I'll bundle up and enjoy some freshies this weekend (maybe even Friday afternoon—shhhhh!).
