In 2006, we began tracking snowfall and monitoring the winter weather from our house in Waterbury, Vermont, and since 2009 we have been reporting the snowfall and liquid equivalent through CoCoRaHS as station VT-WS-19 (Waterbury 3.0 NW), where our records can be found. Other observations that we make are frequently posted here in our web log, and also in the New England Regional Forum at American Weather, an excellent site for tracking winter storms with numerous professional meteorologists providing forecasts and discussion about weather in New England.
Data from our period of observational record indicates that our location typically receives about 50 snowstorms a season, with an average of roughly 160 inches of snowfall. A table summarizing some of the data and statistics for each season is shown below:
Full narrative summaries for each winter season can be easily accessed through the links in the list below.
