    You're in a high over low blocking pattern. Meaning there's a high pressure to the north keeping that low from kicking out.

    Unless this weather pattern breaks down MWO should get at least another 7" this month.

    It looks like that low around Christmas is going to be a southern event.

    The WGME weather page says the mountains might get some snow from it.

    www.wgme.com/Weather/index.shtml

    How about some sun....
    The sun is back both today and tomorrow!. Temps will warm into the 30s for the first half of the weekend. Our next storm system will pass west of the area on Sunday. This will put us on the mild side of the storm. The second half of the weekend will showcase rain developing along with gusty winds. This should end with some light snow in the mountains. Sunny/quiet weather is expected through the holiday!

    Snow totals from Wednesday night through Thursday

    Portland 6"
    Westbrook 7"
    Falmouth 6"
    Cumberland Center 6"
    Poland 5"
    Lewiston 5"
    Brunswick 6"

    Question An Uneducated Guess!

    I live in southern NH and from looking at what we have for a total snow fall, believe the summit must have received at least 60" or better. I am looking at an area in my side yard, where I shovel for the propane delivery person. This area does not receive any snow from anywhere but up above, from the Big Guy himself! I see at least 22" and this really can not even come close to Mt Washington's Summit, that seems to have gotten much more snow then we have for the year so far.

    I have been watching the Summit since the beginning of the year and from the looks of all the storms, large and small, it would appear that the summit must have received at least that 5' mark, or better! This is only my opinion and I am not educated in this area, just very interested in the summit and north country in general!!!

    WMUR in Manchester, NH posted a summary of highest snowfall Decembers. We are at #6 right now.

    There's no need to guess. There is an army of observers and interns checking snowfall every six hours and updating the website with snow totals every morning.

    The daily snowfall totals are posted each day in the "F6 report" which can be found at http://www.mountwashington.org/weather/f6/

    We sure are...and as of this morning, we are at 51.0" of snowfall for the month of December with 10 days left to go. The 30 year average for the December is 50.0", so we have officially exceeded our average snowfall for the month for the first time this year! Now we can start making up the 17.0" deficit we are running for the year.

    A couple other interesting facts about the summit weather so far this month: we have received at least a trace of snowfall every day(only two of those days were a trace, the rest were at least 0.1) and the average daily temperature has been below the 30 year average every day except the last 2.

    We also have not gone above freezing since Nov. 27th(we reached 35 that day). That's a streak of 24 days counting today. Unfortunately, that streak, as well as our streak of snow storms, is likely to end this weekend with a warm storm cutting through the Great Lakes. Oh well, a December with on warm storm is not a bad December at all in my book!

    The ski areas must be cranked up and happy for the first time in many years.
