Episode Narrative A dual, elongated area of low pressure moved across the Great Lakes into New England during the afternoon and night of February 24th. A secondary area of low pressure significantly developed across Cape Cod and the Gulf of Maine during the early morning hours of February 25th.
The first part of this system deposited 2 to 5 inches of snow across much of Vermont during the late afternoon and evening hours of the 24th, then the wrap-around, orographically enhanced snowfall across the Green Mountains continued overnight into Saturday with total storm snowfall accumulations ranging from 3 to 36 inches. The heaviest orographic snowfalls fell across the higher terrain in the northern third of Vermont, especially along the Green Mountains. The greatest impacted locations included eastern Franklin, Orleans, Lamoille and eastern Chittenden counties.
Event Narrative Snow began during the afternoon of February 24th and continued into the early morning hours of Saturday, where it became more orographically enhanced Saturday with the west-northwest slopes of the higher terrain witnessing higher snowfall totals. Storm total snowfall accumulations ranged from 3 to 15 inches with 15 inches in Averill.
