Light snow has been falling throughout the region all afternoon. The forecast is only calling for a few inches to fall. Later in the week the NWS is calling for a brief warm up with a little rain on Friday. Saturday is also forecast to be in the upper 30’s before returning to colder temps on Sunday.

Last night when I turned in I thought the storm was a bust. However, when I got up this morning we had indeed gotten some snow. At 2pm light snow continues to fall on the NEK. Snow totals from around the region are between 6-14 inches with some other parts of the state recording up to 2 feet of snow! The highest total from around the NEK that I could find was 14 inches in Averill. Here in Island Pond we’ve received 8.5″ so far. The wind is really blowing it around creating white out conditions during some of the heavier gusts.
I was hoping to see the 24″ mark covered on thewebcam snow stake, but we didn’t manage to get enough for that. Oh well, there’s always tomorrow….
The NWS has issued a Winter Storm Warning from 10 am on Thursday February 13th through 1 pm on Friday February 14th. The track of the storm has trended west over the past few days, resulting in more snow forecast for the area. Just about everyone in the NEK should receive between 6-12 inches of snow before the storm winds down on Friday.

I also wanted to mention that we had a 50 degree spread between our morning low, -22, and our high of 28 this afternoon.
