Episode Narrative A large storm system moved from the Mississippi River valley on the 1st into the Great Lakes on the 2nd, before dissipating north of the Great Lakes on the 3rd. Meanwhile, low pressure developed over the mid-Atlantic coast on the morning of the 2nd, along a boundary that extended from the Great Lakes storm, and moved across eastern New England by nightfall. Snow moved into central and eastern Vermont after midnight on the 2nd and mixed with sleet and freezing rain at times before ending by early evening. The combined snow and sleet accumulations across central and eastern Vermont ranged from 6 to 8 inches in the valleys, due to some downslope winds, to over a foot in the favorable upslope regions along the east facing slopes of the higher terrain. The heavy wet snow and mixed precipitation created some treacherous road conditions during the morning and evening commutes that caused numerous vehicle accidents. Some specific accumulations include; 6 inches in East Haven (Essex), Cambridge (Lamoille) and Woodbury (Washington), 7 inches in East Burke (Caledonia), Strafford (Orange), Newport (Orleans), Berlin and Plainfield (Washington), 8 inches in Chelsea (Orange), Calais (Washington) and Woodstock (Windsor), 9 inches in Stannard (Caledonia) and Montpelier (Washington), 10 inches in Sharon and Hartland (Windsor), 11 inches in Sutton (Caledonia), Island Pond (Essex), Jeffersonville (Lamoille), Brookfield (Orange), Northfield and Waterbury (Washington) and Springfield (Windsor), 12 inches in Jay (Orleans), Worcester (Washington), Pittsfield (Rutland) and Chester (Windsor), 13 inches in Walden (Caledonia) with 15 inches in Bethel (Windsor) and Wheelock (Caledonia).
