There is well under six inches. Here is a super-cool page from the NOAA site that shows snow depth in the NE and is updated daily:

Keep in mind that that data is recorded at a specific elevation..usually at a lower station. As you climb there WILL be more snow!

I provide data at several stations in the ADK's to NOAA starting in January, so I'm aware of the process.....

When we left camp yesterday there was about 6-8" inches at 2000', with a lot more coming down....and up....and sideways....

I'm wondering where the "line" was. I'm in Wells and there was intermittent snow all day yesterday, coming down heavily in the morning and lighter at different times during the day.

However, because of the temps, nothing was sticking.

I think that somewhere between Speculator and Indian lake is where it started to stick.

It appeared to be sticking and building above 2000' at Piseco....and according to reports it seemed to be just north of Speculator and was less as you go east. The peaks to the west as seen from Warrensburg today (Crane, Long Tom, Mt. Blue) have white tops.

As I drove south on Rt 10 it started to get spotty real quick..with little accumulation at Arietta....this was around 3:30pm.

According to local reports, Long Lake and Inlet got the worse of the storm. Whether they meant the snow or wind damage too, I don't know.

It wasn't bad here in the Southern Dacks.

I just came out of the woods near the Johnsburg/Wells line and there wasn't much snow around the road at Rt.8 but up the hill between 1500-1900 feet there was 3 to 4 inches, but melting fast when I left at 1 pm today.

News last night said Old Forge got 10 inches, but Otter Lake only got a few.

A DEC "acquaintance" just stopped in for a few and said he heard the Moose River Plains got hit with about 18 inches this last weekend and there was alot of stuck vehicles back in there to deal with (downed trees etc.).

fisher,
Thanks for that map link! I've been wondering about snow depths myself...planning a trip to Pharoah this weekend.
Trip planning aside, it's still a cool link!

Good thing I went through on Saturday! Made a bit of a detour but stopped at the Northeast regional Quilt Show in Old Forge(fabulous!) and the town was abuzz about the upcoming storm. Once I get my Blizzaks on I'll drive through anything, but until then....So Sunday morning the closest I got was the webcam!

It looks like they updated the map from this morning and Long Lake did get quite a bit of snow!
