Advisories are up, normally we'd need 4" to warrant which will likely not be met, but it looks like the heaviest rates will coincide with the morning commute.

Inverted trof beginning to rotate through.

At 07z...a 1010 millibar low and trailing frontal system through
the lower Great Lakes. A 1014 millibar low and associated
frontal system was off the Carolina coast. GOES water vapor
imagery showed a shortwave impulse over the lower Great Lakes
racing eastward towards New England. NWS Doppler Radar mosaic
showed an area of snow across the lower Great Lakes in advance
of this feature racing into northern New England. The column is
sufficiently cold and dry for a snow event and precipitation
type will not be an issue. For today...the impulse will race
east with light snow breaking out everywhere in time for the
morning commute. It`ll end quickly across much of southern and
western New Hampshire later this morning and the remainder of
New Hampshire by midday. That`ll be the case in much of
southwest and western Maine as well. However...for central and
mid coast Maine the snow may linger a bit longer as we see the
northern low interact with the surface low exiting the Carolina
coast this morning. That surface trough may provide enough extra
lift for some locally higher snow totals there. Snow totals
should range from only an inch of two in far southern New
Hampshire with 2 to 4 inches common elsewhere. I can`t rule out
a few higher totals in mid coast Maine depending on how quickly
that surface trough sets up. By afternoon...the impulse and
surface system are offshore with clearing in all but mountain
sections. We`ll warm up as well by afternoon with readings
above freezing in all but the mountains.

GYX sounding from gateway evening suggested high ratio snow, and that attitudes to be the case.

Moderate to heavy SN.  Efficiently accumulating dendrites.

Woke up at 4:30, as part of my getting old routine.  Wife said there was a dusting and I swear I saw one too.  But alas, it’s just wet this morning.  36 degrees now.  In looking at the temperature history and past radar, it’s very possible we did have a dusting as it was below freezing during the snow, there were some heavier echoes, and it started warming around 5am.

All we received from this dull system was a brief spate of--you guessed it--rain. And the snow piles from November's storms continue to shrink.

And we have flurries - small micro flakes. 

There was no evidence of that here in the valley (525' IMBY).  Maybe it drizzled briefly, but nothing frozen, not even on car after it fell.  It was just wet.  And temps increased overnight at KFWN from 28° to 38°

We received around an inch and a half here.  It whitened everything up again.  The nearby ski mountains seem to be reporting in the 3 to 6 inch range. I skied last night and the mountains still had good coverage, but it is nothing like it was at the end of November when the snow was waist deep in the woods.
