Episode Narrative A powerful primary upper level and surface low across the Ohio River Valley on the morning of December 16th spawned a secondary coastal low in the Delmarva Peninsula. Both systems merged across southern New England during the afternoon of the 16th and then moved into the Gulf of Maine at night.

Snow overspread Vermont just after midnight on the 16th and briefly mixed with sleet during the late morning and early afternoon hours before steadier and heavier snow returned during the late afternoon hours and continued until just after midnight on the 17th. Brisk northwest winds of 15 to 25 mph with stronger gusts accompanied the steadier snowfall in the evening hours and that resulted in considerable blowing and drifting of the snow with greatly reduced visibilities.

Storm total snowfall accumulations across Vermont were 8 to 18 inches. Some of the higher snowfall totals included; 18 inches in Vergennes (Addison county), Brookfield (Orange county) as well as Milton, Hanksville and Essex Junction (Chittenden county), 17 inches in Wheelock (Caledonia county), 16 inches in Sutton (Caledonia county), NWS Burlington office in South Burlington (Chittenden county). Elsewhere, 15 inches fell in Chittenden (Rutland county), Stowe and Cambridge (Lamoille county) with 14 inches in Marshfield (Washington county) and Springfield (Windsor county).
