Surprise snow!

Posted Friday, March 15, 2013

I think the snow that fell in the last day and a half was a bit of a surprise for Vermont ski areas. A welcome surprise, of course!

Ski resorts are reporting a couple of inches of new snow to nearly 10 inches atop a couple northern Vermont peaks. Nice.

Nordic ski centers also picked up snow in places like Stowe, where they report 2 - 5 inches. Check out our links to <link internal-link internal link in current>Vermont resort snow conditions.

While it's sunny this morning, look for snow to move in this afternoon and evening. The <link http: www.erh.noaa.gov btv _blank external-link-new-window nws>National Weather Service has this warning, so check out the radar and forecast if you are driving. 

OCCASIONAL SNOW SHOWERS WITH POSSIBLE SNOW SQUALLS ARE EXPECTED ACROSS THE NORTH COUNTRY TODAY. THE SNOW SHOWERS AND SNOW SQUALLS WILL DEVELOP ACROSS NORTHERN NEW YORK BY MIDDAY AND SPREAD EAST INTO VERMONT DURING THE AFTERNOON HOURS. ANY SNOW SQUALLS WILL HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO QUICKLY REDUCE VISIBILITIES BELOW ONE HALF OF A MILE AND PRODUCE A QUICK DUSTING TO 2 INCHES OF SNOW. TRAVEL WILL BE IMPACTED BY THESE SNOW SHOWERS AND SNOW SQUALLS.

Here's a still shot taken from a video that Mad River Glen put out. It shows what the snow looked like on Thursday. Not too shabby!
