Snowfall Measurement

  1. Great site! Love your numerous snow measuring methods! I need to come to Waterbury VT in the next 60 days – the sooner the better. I was wondering how much snow you will have on the ground after Storm Quinn is done? Also I was wondering when your ground typically thaws in Waterbury? I need to do some work that involves digging several 1 foot deep holes and I can’t find any useful info on the internet. Is it possible for you to send me a uick email? Thanks so much.

    1. Hi Laura, it’s hard to say exactly how much snow will be on the ground in the coming days because we’ve got a big mountain upslope snow even taking place right now, and it looks like it could last for a few days. I don’t specifically monitor when the ground thaws here at my site, but it can certainly vary a bit between open fields and more wooded areas here in Waterbury. I do have information on the average date for the final snow to melt out here at our location (April 14th ± 11 days), and I would expect the ground to be thawed by that point for similar locations at valley level in Waterbury.
