January 26th, 2013 – Waterbury Winter Weather Event Updates

 

 

Sunday, January 27th, 2013

 

 

Event totals: 0.1” Snow/0.01” L.E.

 

Late last night I saw that there was light snow falling outside, which was associated with the upper level trough coming through the area.  The NWS discussion described it as “fairly potent”, but it had little moisture:

 

DISCUSSION FROM 639 PM SATURDAY... A FAIRLY POTENT UPPER LEVEL TROUGH IS PUSHING THROUGH THE REGION NOW...BUT HAS VERY LITTLE MOISTURE TO WORK WITH SO CLOUDS WILL CONTINUE TO REALLY BE THE ONLY NOTICEABLE EFFECT FOR MOST. AS A WEAK SURFACE COLD FRONT PUSHES THROUGH THE AREA BETWEEN 00Z AND 06Z...MAY SEE SOME WEAK ENHANCEMENT IN THE MOUNTAINS AND ALONG THE WESTERN SLOPES WITH SOME LIGHT FLURRIES OR SNOW SHOWERS...BUT LITTLE TO NO ACCUMULATION EXPECTED. AS SYSTEM CONTINUES ITS PUSH EASTWARD...CLOUDS WILL GRADUALLY DISSIPATE OVERNIGHT AND SKIES WILL BECOME MOSTLY CLEAR BY MORNING. EXPECTING LOWS GENERALLY IN THE SINGLE DIGITS ON EITHER SIDE OF ZERO.

 

This morning’s observations report from here is nearly a duplicate of yesterday’s though in terms of snow, liquid content, snowpack depth, and sky observations.  The only thing I had to change in my reporting template was the temperature.

New Liquid: 0.01 inches

Snow/Water Ratio: 10.0
