|Episode Narrative||A very powerful Nor'easter (960 mb) passed just southeast of Cape Cod on December 27th. It's origins began as a powerful storm system that produced devastating floods and heavy rainfall to portions of southern California, Arizona and Nevada earlier in the week. This system redeveloped in the Gulf of Mexico on Christmas Day and continued to intensify as it moved northeast along the eastern seaboard. Blizzard conditions of heavy snows, strong and damaging winds in excess of 70 mph impacted coastal and inland communities from New Jersey north through Maine on the 26th and 27th.
In Vermont, snow arrived across southern sections and the lower Connecticut River Valley during the late afternoon and evening of December 26th. Snow gradually moved into the rest of Vermont and became heavy at times in central and southern Vermont during the overnight and morning hours of December 27th.
Snowfall amounts of 4 to 8 inches across central, northeast Vermont, 8 to 15 inches in southern Vermont with some localized higher amounts. In addition strong north winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts approaching 40 mph caused considerable blowing and drifting of the snow. Numerous vehicle accidents and some isolated to scattered power outages were witnessed.
|Event Narrative||Snowfall totals of 3 to 6 inches along with blowing and drifting of the snow due to north winds of 15 to 25 mph with gusts approaching 40 mph.|
