Episode Narrative An upper atmospheric area of low pressure and weak surface low moved across Vermont on the morning of December 28th. Periods of light snow occurred from daybreak through the late afternoon hours on December 28th which resulted in 2 to 4 inches of snow accumulation with localized higher amounts.
An arctic cold front and upper atmospheric disturbance moved across Vermont during the morning commute of December 29th with snow showers and localized snow squalls. Widespread snowfall accumulations of 1 to 3 inches occurred with localized amounts up to 4 inches.
Two-day storm totals were 4 to 12 inches across much of Vermont. Some specific higher snowfall totals included; 12 inches in Killington (Rutland county), 11 inches in Westfield (Orleans county) and North Underhill (Chittenden county), 10 inches in Lincoln (Addison county), 9 inches in Jay (Orleans county) and Richmond (Chittenden county), 7 inches in Sutton (Caledonia county), South Burlington (Chittenden county), Eden (Lamoille county), Rutland (Rutland county), Northfield (Washington county) and Sheldon Springs (Franklin county) with 6 inches in Stowe (Lamoille county), Newport (Orleans county), Waterbury (Washington county) and Bethel (Windsor county).
Rapidly falling temperatures to the single digits above zero degrees along with falling and blowing snow during the morning commute of December 29th accounted for roads to flash freeze that resulted in numerous vehicle accidents, especially along Interstate 89 between Montpelier and St. Albans.
