Not sure what time pic was taken...
I'm thinking mid to late morning ... maybe just before these:

Re: First Winter Storm Watch 10/11

Powderqueen has forwarded two reports from Ski-VT.  

Killington has 18" at the summit 6" at the base.

6" at 3600 feet on Mansfield with snow levels dropping.

I'm assuming these reports must be at least a few hours old.

What an awesome storm!

Whiteface is looking pretty nice right about now..

earlier today:



I'll be heading up in a few hours with Matt, his wifey, and a friend.

on another note, is this your dog? He's adorable, but I wish he hadn't kept me up till 4:30 in the morning trying to find his owner. I have such a day ahead of me!

It looks like Whiteface was the big winner. Though I can't find any totals. I wouldn't believe a ob out of kiillington if my life depended on it. Just checked the Stowe cam , quite a bit of rain at the base with a little snow..
Zero snow for the Cats..MGR looks to have received a few inch's based on the web cam..

Re: The Weather Thread 10/11

This is kinda fun. While we obviously had some significant snow last week, this is a real winter type radar shot. I like it:

I asked Jason about next week. He said "don't ask."

Arctic Report Card

NOAA issued Arctic Report Card 2010
 
Check out at the bottom of Atmosphere section :

While individual weather extreme events cannot be directly linked to larger scale climate changes, recent data analysis and modeling suggest a link between loss of sea ice and a shift to an increased impact from the Arctic on mid-latitude climate (Francis et al. 2009; Honda et al. 2009). Models suggest that loss of sea ice in fall favors higher geopotential heights over the Arctic. With future loss of sea ice, such conditions as winter 2009-2010 could happen more often. Thus we have a potential climate change paradox. Rather than a general warming everywhere, the loss of sea ice and a warmer Arctic can increase the impact of the Arctic on lower latitudes, bringing colder weather to southern locations.
