Good Monday morning. It is snowing now and its right on schedule. The accumulations should be ok. I am quite please how this forecast turned out esp. when it all started a week ago.
But now we turn to the news making storm coming on Wed into early Thu. Below is my current thinking:
What Could Change?
This storm is a text-book set-up: Blocking high over Greenland. 50/50 low in the Atlantic. Fresh injection of cold air 36 hours prior to storm. Big high just north of NY/VT that anchors the cold air. Deep moisture fetch from Gulf and Atlantic Ocean.
After this storm, its cold. Maybe a little snow/rain on Sunday and then again on Tue. Longer range looks dry for the days prior to Christmas (Wed and Thu). A bigger storm might be brewing for Christmas Eve night and Christmas Day.
Rest of Today: Snow ends by 1 pm at the latest. 1” valleys. 1-2” ridges.
Tuesday: Mostly sunny. Cold. 34.
Wednesday: Increasing clouds early, snow arrives early afternoon. 32.
Wed Night: Heavy snow. slight chance for period of sleet early. 24.
Thursday: Partly sunny. Any light snow ends very early. Breezy. 35.
Friday: Partly to mostly sunny. 30.
Saturday: Partly to mostly sunny. 34.
Sunday: Cloudy. Chance snow/rain showers. 36.
Monday: Sun and clouds. 32.
