Episode Narrative A strong storm system moved across the northern Great Lakes on April 16th and 17th with an associated occluded front that slowly moved east across New York into Vermont. Meanwhile, a very strong area of high pressure was located across New Brunswick.
The large pressure gradient (> 40mb) between both systems resulted in strong south to southeast winds in a return flow across the Green Mountains of Vermont that produced strong to damaging downslope winds along the western slopes during the late evening of April 16th into the early morning hours of April 17th.
There were numerous reports of trees downed by high winds, with wind gusts in excess of 60 mph, that resulted in nearly 10,000 customers without power from the foothills in eastern Rutland county north to eastern Franklin county along the Canadian border.
Event Narrative Several reports of trees down and scattered power outages along elevated hillsides within the county.
