Episode Narrative A powerful winter storm moved from the lower Mississippi River Valley on the morning of March 4th, into the Ohio River Valley during the night and then across New England on the 5th.
Snow and sleet overspread Vermont during the night of March 4th and accumulated a few inches inches prior to changing to freezing rain during the early morning hours of the 5th. Freezing rain accumulated around 1/4 of an inch across portions of Vermont, prior to it ended around noon.
In addition, strong winds which gusted to near 50 mph combined with accumulated ice on trees that resulted in scattered downed tree branches and limbs.
School cancellations, scattered power outages and numerous vehicle accidents resulted from the very hazardous conditions.
