Default Snow?

Anyone in the Moultonborough know what the snow is doing? Snowing pretty hard here in mass and I'm considering coming up tonight to ride tomorrow.
Thoughts?

I was up there the last two nights and it was great. Since its higher elevation the new snow should be great for it.

Default Fyi

We may not have much new snow on the ground by tomorrow morning. This storm is supposed to be a 24 hour storm and drop it in small increments. Total storm predictions for our area are anywhere from as little as 3 to as much as 9 inches, so in other words they do not know and we could wind up with a little or a lot. Warm daytime temps next week and possible rain means it won't last long either.
Worst winter I can remember for keeping snow on the ground.
Oh and about 1 inch in Belmont as of now.

Its been snowing on and off all day. Maybe two inches of heavy snow so far. I didn't venture out on the trails in Moultonborough neck they looked very thin. The parts of the lake I was on today wasn't to bad for riding around (lots of spots with no snow just ice) on but you have to be careful with the visibility with the snow coming down seeing the pressure ridges out there.

Good luck with the drive up

Not a lot of change since I went to bed, maybe 2" of heavy wet snow here. Yes that is total so it snowed maybe 1/2 inch over night. I just looked at radar and it just doesn't look like we are going to get a whole lot, also the outside temp is 34 so I'm sure we are also getting melting as well. Temps on the high 30's tomorrow do not fair well for it staying around.
Update:it came down hard for about 1.5 hours and we are now up to 4", nothing happening now, it's coming in waves.

Default Alton Bay 10:00 AM

About a half mile out of Alton Bay beyond Sandy Point, and a half mile off the Lake above rte 11, I have 4.5 inches of heavy wet snow. The "D" trail detour goes right down my street past my house, and not a single snowmobile has gone by this morning. Still snowing pretty good, last look at the weather radar shows the snow is moving NE and the back edge is from around Keene to just west of New London and pts north from there.

ride well, ride safe, and wave going past my house.

No your not Dan, I just finished my first round which includes a house on Liberty Hill and we have exactly 8" in Belmont. It has been coming down steady for the last few hours and it has been piling up. If this last till midnight like they project it will, we should have somewhere in the area of a foot or more. Can't put enough smiles in!!!

As of noon we had 10" of the predicted 3 to 6 here on the hill side in West Alton, heavy stuff to plow and shovel. I presume that Mike Haddad will be by to remove the surplus.

Default Slush

The snow didn't do any favors for lake riding, or even walking. There is a thick layer of slush under the new heavy snow - it probably pushed the ice down and up came the water. Snowmobiles need to go fast or get bogged down, and the slush will come up 6" on your boots in spots. There is not much traffic today, so the lake won't be packed down. Maybe it will get better as the new snow settles. There is still 15" of ice under the slush.

10" here in Belmont as well as of 1pm. I'll take another 2 then I can charge for 2 storms. This is by far the hardest snow to plow yet. I waited until the 20+ storm was over and had an easier time of moving that then the 6-8 I was moving today.

Looks like we'll end up with 10-12" of the wet heavy stuff in Laconia. The snow should end here within the hour.

Default Tuesday

This just popped up on my home page. Acuweather has 3-6 inches of snow Tuesday night.
Maybe they will have enough for the sled dog races next W/E.

From what they were predicting it really did not look all that good. The good news is that we may be in snow from Tuesday night right into the weekend, and then there are signs that we may be dealing with yet another storm for the weekend. Total speculation at this point but NECN is one of the more accurate ones out there.
I hope you get to ride soon. For what it is worth I'm waiting for a W/E without snow so that I can head north to Maine. Hopefully soon.

I started at 10am with3 or 4 inches of new snow on 20mile bay. We went over thru melvin bay and powerlines to lake wentworth and back. Then we went 19 mile bay thru woods to Tuftonboro general store all over mirror lake, winter harbor and Lang pond road area. It was phenomenal. By the time we quit at 3 there was 10 plus inches of new snow. Hope it lasts till next weekend. It's heavy we'r pack able stuff.

It looks like we may be in a stormy pattern. More snow Tuesday night into Wednesday.

Thought about a 3pt hitch blower for the Deere, don't really want to give up the FEL for a front blower. The plow on the Dodge is still the quickest way to open up 650' of driveway.

West side of Alton Bay just outside of Sandy Point, and a half mile off the lake: just over 7 inches of snow through late afternoon yesterday, and then just over 2 inches overnight, so total of 9+ inches.

This morning on Alton Mountain we received in all >12", but it is going down fast with the warmth (Temp not sun). My drive is clear black top right now and 1/2 is dried off meaning not wet.

We've gotten off and on very wet snow here by Christmas Island. I'd say maybe a couple inches has fallen but has compacted into less than an inch. We are right on the edge of the rain/snow line. They laid some sand/salt down on the streets a couple hours ago. Unlike the last storm which had constant bands of heavy snow, this storm has patches of on and off light wet snow.

On/off in the Alton/New Durham area, and seems to switch back and forth from slush to wet snow. Also seems to be melting as fast as it falls. Not much on the ground and the roads are wet but clear.

Default Same here

On and off with zero accumulation. I've been calling around and it is the same in Gilmanton and Gilford, looks like a bust. The temp is fluctuating between 36 and 37.

Are roofs that covered up there with snow right now? The blizzard we got blew all of it off, what didn't melted shortly after. The storm last week added some but a lot of it melted the past couple days.

As of 2pm today we got 2" on the hill side in West Alton.

Last storm the prediction was 3 to 6" and we got 13". This storm the prediction is for 6 to 12" and it looks like we will end up with maybe 4". I guess you could say that "on average" the predictions are right on.

Got some show off the roof yesterday, about 15" of heavy stuff.

I just cleared off a friends chicken coop. About 6-10 inches and each shovel full felt like it had a cinder block in it.
But the news media are as usual getting everyone in a frenzy over roofs and snow.
If you have a properly constructed house you will be fine unless you have a flat or slightly flat roof. Most homes with a steep pitch will have no problems at all.

Default Changeover in the last hour

I drove from Gilford to Alton around 2 pm and the roads were totally clear and we had only steady flurries. On the way back a little after 3 pm the snow and wind had increased considerably and Rte. 11 was snow covered and the traffic was going about 35 mph in the 55 mph zone. When I look out the window I can't see more than 100 feet. Looks like I'm in a snow globe. I guess the serious accumulation will be between now and tomorrow morning.

keep us updated
I am worried about my roof given the past amounts of heavy wet stuff and then this storm
I can tell you that around Paugus Bay we have had melting snow since the last storm ended. I have a shingled roof and even the side that doesn't get sun has less than 4" on it. The snow roofs on our property, with steeper slopes, had no snow on them as of last night. The snow has been in a pretty constant state of melting. Had the temps plummeted I would have worried about ice dams, but there's no chance of that with moderating temps above freezing. The foreseeable forecast has temps above freezing during the day with lows at night in the upper 20's. I wouldn't worry about your roof with the amount of melting that we'll see in the next few days. I haven't had to use my ice bubbler for 4 days!

Waterville Valley: judging what's accumulated on the parked cars all day here, it looks like it is two inches of fairly wet snow.......definately no big snowy deal what-so-ever, so far! The www.waterville.com says it is five inches but they must have their own way of measuring or something?

Ha, ha ski areas and snowmobile reports seem to have the same problem with snow totals. I have heard this from a lot of people this year who have headed north expecting more then you got when they got there.

A whole lot of not much, but just enough to plow. Average was 3-4 inches in Belmont, Gilmanton & Gilford with maybe 2 in Laconia.

Upper elevations are good .... the bottom trails are really thin...Red hill and sandwich notch is ok ... not so great over to holderness by little squam. I rode over castle and the clouds and up to white lake. everything was great till i hit the tracks. North conway up twards twin got 10 inches yesterday so it must be pretty good up there. Berlin got 5 inches. I heard cole brook was in good shape and ash stream. Be carefull on the lakes watch for ridges , theres a lot of open water around them. Thats what i know... i am going for a ride latter before it all melts here... have fun

All the lake areas I have driven by look like pea soup slush. So lake riding may not be all that great. And it doesn't help that the temp is at 40 degrees.
Lots of melting going on.
I'm heading up to Jackman tonight with my son. They didn't get much but there is some good riding to be had in places.
