  • Description:
    "Snowfall generated by upslope flow is a common occurrence at higher elevations and on the windward side of mountains in northern New Hampshire and western Maine. While the geographic area affected is limited, locally heavy snowfall can occur in favored lo cations, impacting travel and snow removal operations. Daily snowfall from cooperative observers (COOPs) and the New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) were used to define events for the period 2001 - 2007. The total snowfall from each event was then stratified into heavy, moderate and light upslope snow events, based on local warning criteria. Composites of mean snowfall were calculated for each upslope snowfall category"--Abstract.
