How Much? New England Snow Totals March 4, 2023

Some parts of New England overachieved while other areas underachieved during our latest snowstorm. This was a tricky forecast with some models off the charts with snowfall (I'm looking at you, GFS) and others were showing not much at all.


This was especially true around Boston. Some outlets were calling for up to 6 inches in the city (GFS was showing close to a FOOT). New England Storm Center called for 1-3 inches in the city, which was much closer to the 0.4 inches Logan Airport picked up. As for the overachievers, in my forecast on Thursday evening, I wrote:


"Exactly where this occurs will remain to be seen, but somewhere in southern Vermont and/or New Hampshire will overachieve."

This area set up a bit further north than I thought it would, but places like Paris, ME; Belmont, ME; South Tamworth, NH; Addison, VT and Maidstone, VT all picked up 15-17 inches. Here's the final totals from across the region:
