A blocking pattern in the upper level wind flow across Greenland maintained a trough of low pressure across eastern North America on the 3rd and 4th. On the night of the 3rd, moisture and warmer air aloft backed southwest into an arctic airmass across northern Vermont causing snow to develop. Northwest winds at the low levels caused upslope conditions to develop during the early morning of the 4th across the Champlain Valley of Vermont into the western slopes of the Green Mountains. Snowfall accumulations ranged from a few inches along the lakeshore to over a foot less than 5 miles inland.

The following is a comprehensive listing of official storm snowfall reports for this storm ending on March 5th 2006.
