A powerful late-winter storm continues to linger in northern New England after dropping accumulations from 10 to 20 inches in parts of the Green Mountains of Vermont and the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Heavy snow in northern New England is being accompanied by gusty winds. Winter storm warnings remain in effect in some places where additional snow is expected to accumulate. Gusty winds are creating near-blizzard conditions as well. Additionally, temperatures are in the single digits in some places.
Here are some of the snowfall reports from NWS meteorologists and weather observers in the region (data courtesy Burlington VT National Weather Service and Taunton MA National Weather Service:
East Roxbury VT: 24 inches
Northfield VT: 20 inches
Pittsburg NH: 14 inches
Lyndonville VT: 13 inches
Sharon VT: 26 inches
Guilford ME: 15 inches
Bethel VT: 18 inches
Randolph VT: 16 inches
*Note: Some of these totals do not include new snowfall amounts from the past six hours and snow continues to fall in many locations.
While this storm brought heavy snow to upstate New York, northern Vermont, northern New Hampshire, and inland Maine, coastal areas of New England experienced a cold rain in places like Boston MA and New Haven CT (although some areas in southern New England changed to snow and sleet with minor accumulations.) Farther to the south, spring-like temperatures and thunderstorms were reported in Pennsylvania and Maryland.
