Episode Narrative An elongated surface low across New England on February 19th exited the region into the Canadian Maritimes on February 20th and 21st. In addition, a strong, closed upper level low moved across New England on February 20th into the Canadian Maritimes on February 21st. This resulted in a prolonged favorable westerly flow of cool, moist and unstable air across the higher terrain of Vermont.
Persistent snow showers developed across higher elevations of west-northwest facing slopes of Vermont during the afternoon of February 20th and continued til the early morning hours of February 21st. Localized upslope enhancement resulted in very localized significant snowfall amounts (more than 12 inches) observed at various ski resorts. Some of these higher amounts included; 31 inches in Bolton (Chittenden county), 30 inches in Warren (Washington county), 25 inches in Fayston (Washington county), 20 inches in Jay Peak (Orleans county), 17 inches in Stowe (Lamoille county) and 16 inches in Killington (Rutland county), 9 inches in Ludlow and West Windsor (Windsor county) and 8 inches in Burke (Caledonia county). Meanwhile in the valleys, 3 to 8 inches of snowfall was observed during this two-day period.
