Over the last few days , a lot of people have been crying about the lack of love(snow) the mountains have been getting. This next system might show a Whole Lotta Love..
With a monster ridge forming just off the west coast and polar vortex over Easter Canada. If the balance remains right we could have the best of both worlds. A split flow , flow from the south west and flow from the north. A Baroclinic Zone will form just north of the Mason Dixon line. The boundary of warm and cold , along with a stable wave (a low that doesn't blow up) a juicy over running situation is setting up. This should produce significant snows for all of the mountains of the North East.. As we all know things can change on a dime ,so say tuned..
I'm watching it closely right now. Could be huge. Hopefully, it rains in the city and the snow line is just north. I would hate to have to deal with digging out the car again, and worrying about finding parking.
Looks like warm air aloft will move north of the Cats , while cold air remains at the surface. This might produce a period of icing for the Cats and Berkshires. Areas north of Alb should remain all snow. My first guess 8+ for all the mountains. The chance for significantly greater amounts is possible.
no offense Jason but you really don't need all that snow you have gotten so far this year...share the love with us up here in the "no" zone. Actually skiing was really good up here this weekend. I mentioned today on the lift that if we can get the rain into NYC we could see a nice dump...I am calling for 12-18" and if the girls have the day off from school, we're heading north. I have a big circle around Wednesday and Thursday.
I think it's very reasonable to expect icing in the Catskills for a little while. The real question is how much snow will there be on the backside of that. If it's something like 8-12 inches on the backside of the icing it should really set up nicely for this weekend. Any thoughts based on the GFS or EWCMF?
Suds, When it comes to snow, I'm real selfish. I want to see snow up to my windows. I love to watch it snow ,not just read about it..That said, I know you guys are hurting , so the next event is for the northern boys..
