The next 48 hours looks pretty good for continued nickel and dime snowfall to add to the seasonal totals.

 

Thanks for the heads up PF, I went and checked the point forecast for our area, and even down here in the valley the graphics are looking wintry:

 

 

On that seasonal totals note, for this location, the January 2012 snowfall total so far is 27.2”.  That’s well below average (40”+), but, it’s actually only 0.4” away from moving past January ’08 (surprisingly poor January for a 200”+ season), and 3.3” from moving past January ’07, so January ‘12 hasn’t been all that bad.  The point forecast here calls for 3-5” through tomorrow night, so even the low end of that would be just about enough to move past those January totals.

 

P.S. – just noticed that it’s snowing, so round one is already here.

Event totals: 0.5” Snow/0.05” L.E.

 

Last night’s disturbance dropped 0.5” of snow here in the valley; the first part was a little crusty on the snowboard since it was above freezing early on, and there are also some graupel-like flakes in there later.  On a seasonal note, the 0.5” from this event brought the January ’12 snowfall to 27.7” and pushed it just past the total snowfall for January ’08.

 

Some details from the 7:00 A.M. Waterbury observations are below:

The Burlington NWS has a headline up for tonight’s snow, and I noticed that there’s a “Heavy Snow” icon in the point and click down here.  The Hazardous Weather Outlook is added below:
