While the rain, and sleet, and hail for some, was beneficial for the dry ground, it is the worst thing possible for a record lover (if there's even anyone that likes to see extreme records set) - just on the very last day of the month, well below average temperatures are experienced with heavy rain that moved this March from the driest on record to the 4th driest on record, and still dropping down the list - meanwhile, if temperatures stay like this through the day, this March will also lose the potential to be the warmest March on record (source: AmericanWx).

It's certainly going to be helpful for the dry conditions, which as of Tuesday D1 conditions became more widespread across SNE:

Total snowfall from this storm is 1.0" with flurries still falling and the temperature at 33.0F. The snow is melting quickly with the high sun angle despite the cold air temperature.

So how did the NAM do? rolleyes.gif laugh.gif I think the GFS did well again.

Some totals from CT. Litchfield County (NW Corner always does good)

Looks like Norfolk got the most from today. Not suprising. Then just a Trace to couple inches in varies spots northern Tier of state.

CONNECTICUT

...LITCHFIELD COUNTY...

NORFOLK 3.4
WINSTED 2.0
BAKERSVILLE 1.2

...TOLLAND COUNTY...

TOLLAND 1.9
STAFFORDVILLE 1.0
COVENTRY 0.8

That report of 0.8" is from me at 6:30am, but it snowed some more after that time so it's about 1" for a snowfall total here, maybe a slight bit more. The snow started at 4am and it stuck almost right away, but it just never fell very hard and ended early.

So looking back at this.. You tell me. Looks like GFS was right with a pocket of dry air at mid levels and surface making for Light snow 8am?

QUOTE(NorEaster07 @ Mar 30 2012, 01:35 PM) *
SkewT animation for Windsor, CT. NAM on left, GFS on right. 2am to 8pm Saturday.

Be cool to see actual OBS report from BDL see how close this was.

Thanks. I actually enjoyed taking the time to do that. Maybe will do it again (different spot of course). I also noticed the Dewpoint at 13% actual OBS at 2am. SkewT showed that as well for 2am at surface.
