Episode Narrative A storm system moved across New England on the night of February 9th which delivered 2 to 5 inches of snow to portions of Vermont, especially central and eastern Vermont. In addition, a favorable southwest flow of arctic air across Lake Ontario ahead and along an approaching cold front accounted for numerous snow showers and heavy snow squalls, mainly across the northern Vermont mountains during the afternoon of the 10th.
The combination of these two events delivered 4 to 7 inches of snow across much of Vermont, except for the northern Champlain Valley. A few specific snowfall totals include: 7 inches in Underhill (eastern Chittenden county), Jeffersonville (Lamoille county) and Worcester (Washington county) with 6 inches in Bethel and Rochester (Windsor county), Rutland (Rutland county), East Albany (Orleans county), Chelsea (Orange county) and Sutton (Caledonia county) and 5 inches in Island Pond (Essex county), Northfield (Washington county) and North Springfield (Windsor county).
Numerous vehicle accidents occurred during the 9th across Vermont and blowing snow extended these hazardous road conditions into the morning hours of the 10th, which contributed to a fatal accident in Concord (Essex county).
