I hadnít had a chance yet to check on the forecast details of todayís snowfall event too closely, but last night on the Weather Channelís graphical forecast intervals for our area I noticed that the early morning block had some snow in it.Looking at the BTV NWS page discussion, they indicate that the snow is breaking out in association with a mid level shortwave and a surface warm/occluded front.It was only snowing lightly when I took my observations at 7:00 A.M., but as of ~7:45 itís up to moderate intensity comprised of lots of decent flakes with diameters of ~1 cm, and a few with diameters almost twice that size.
