Unfortunately we have been having some issues with our internet connection. Without a good connection our webcam and weather station are unable to upload to the website. Comcast was here today and found water in the line coming from the street. They were able to get it going again, but service has been off and on since they were here. The technician is going to put in a work order to replace the line sometime this week. Hopefully we will be back up and running within a few days.
After two cold mornings, -15° Monday and -18° this morning, milder temperatures are ahead. Highs are expected to be in the upper 20’s over the next few days as a coastal low moves up the coast of New England. The storm is far enough off the coast that it shouldn’t effect us other than a few flurries and some wind. By Friday we should see temperatures rise in to the low 40’s. Highs should remain in the 40’s throughout the upcoming weekend.
Even though Spring started a few days ago Winter doesn’t seem to want to give up here in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont, or much of the northeast US for that mater. On Thursday morning, the first day of Spring, we picked up 4 ” of new snow in Island Pond. Yesterday we had a light snow most of the day that didn’t amount to any accumulation. The sun angle is so strong this time of year that even though it’s hidden behind the clouds it’s hard for the snow to accumulate during the daylight hours unless it’s really coming down. We are expecting 2-4 inches of snow today /tonight as another cold front swings through the area. After the front comes through we will have to deal with more cold weather through most of the upcoming week.
As you can see from a current image from our webcam, there is still over 2 feet of snowpack on the ground here in Island Pond.
