"Upslope" snow


Information is available from the NWS about why it seemingly always snows in Pittsburg. Northern NH and Northern VT experience snowfall on a northwest wind as air from the lower elevations to the northwest is forced up the higher elevations in Pittsburg. As the air is forced up it is cooled and condensed, this causes clouds and more often than not snowfall to occur. This is often referred to as "upslope" snow. The largest events such as the one on 1/10/11 are caused when moist air is available; this is often wrapped in from Atlantic Canada. When this already moist air is forced up the slopes on a northwest wind, large often unpredicted snowfall events can occur. Locally this is referred to as "Pittsburg Partly Cloudy"!
