Episode Narrative A strong and intensifying area of low pressure moved just north of the St. Lawrence River across southeast Ontario and Quebec provinces in Canada during the night of January 17th and early morning hours of January 18th.
The strong pressure gradient and cold air advection accompanying low pressure and associated cold front accounted for strong, localized damaging west to southwest winds with gusts in excess of 60 mph in elevations above 2000 feet along the Green Mountains with numerous 40 to 50 mph in the valleys.
The end result was scattered tree limbs, trees and power lines down along with nearly 2500 customers without power across Vermont.
Event Narrative Strong south to southwest winds with frequent gusts in excess of 40 mph and a few gusts to 50 mph knocked down some tree limbs and caused some scattered power outages.
