Episode Narrative A large closed upper atmospheric area of low pressure remained quasi-stationary across New England and Quebec from December 5th through December 8th. A relatively strong surface storm located across New Brunswick on December 6th retrograded across Quebec on December 7th.

A broad, deep layered and moisture laden north to northeast flow delivered snow across much of Vermont and portions of northern New York on the 6th and 7th. Local north-northwest facing mountain upslope regions provided local enhancement that accounted for wide variety in snowfall amounts.

Snowfall amounts immediately along the lake shore of Lake Champlain ranged from a trace to several inches, with 4 to 8 across much of the the valleys of northern Vermont but localized amounts in excess of 2 feet across favorable upslope locations. Some of the highest amounts included; 32 inches in North Underhill (Chittenden county), 29 inches in Nashville (Chittenden county), 27 inches at Jay Peak (Orleans county), Westmore (Orleans county), Fletcher (Franklin county) and Cambridge (Lamoille county).

Numerous vehicle accidents resulted from the snow covered roadways.
Event Narrative Snowfall amounts ranged from 4 to 8 inches.
