Episode Narrative Primary low pressure traveled from the Great Lakes across the Vermont/Canadian border on January 7th. Meanwhile, a coastal low slowly developed south of New England during the late afternoon of the 7th and eventually intensified as it moved into the Gulf of Maine during the night.

Snow overspread Vermont during the early morning hours of the 7th, but changed to a prolonged period of sleet and freezing rain as milder air aloft dominated due to the slow development of the coastal low. Precipitation changed back to light snow and snow showers before ending during the early morning hours of the 8th.

Total snowfall accumulations were generally 3 to 6 inches along with sleet and freezing rain with little to no ice accretion. Nonetheless, there were numerous motor vehicle accidents due to the wintry conditions that occurred both during the morning and evening commutes.
