Episode Narrative A strong area of low pressure moved from Cape Cod into the Gulf of Maine on November 27th and 28th. Meanwhile, a cold upper atmospheric low moved across New England which delivered cold air aloft to the region. The combination accounted for a substantial elevated terrain snow event across Vermont as well as strong gusty winds with the arrival of colder air.
Snowfall across elevations mainly above 1000-1500 feet along and east of the spine of the Green Mountains in Vermont on the night of the 27th into the morning of the 28th ranged from 3 to 7 inches with localized higher amounts in elevations above 2000 feet. Some specific snowfall totals include; 8 inches in Jay (Orleans county) and Walden (Caledonia county), 6 inches in Canaan (Essex county) and Barton (Orleans county), 4 inches in Mendon (Rutland county), Weston (Windsor county), Danville and Sutton (Caledonia county).
In addition, brisk to strong wind gusts in excess of 40 mph ushered in colder air during the early morning hours of the 28th and caused scattered power outages that affected nearly 8000 people. Some observed wind gusts included; 52 mph in Stowe (Lamoille county), 48 mph in Waltham (Addison county) and South Burlington (Chittenden county), 45 mph in Mount Holly (Rutland county) and Springfield (Windsor county).
