The white means 50/50 chance of cold or warm (compared to average), lightest brown means 60/40 on the warm side etc. The maps are as legit as any long term forecast. Everyone raves about rebecca, do you think she is better on the long term than NOAA?
IMO Eastern skiers are looking for blue to be drapped across the central or eastern US implying a storm track that keeps storm south and east, but not too far south and east. A bit like the 6-10 day above.

Last year Rebecca on Facebook nailed every storm like 90 percent.
Here what she says for November
A quick look at the weather over the next few days.
I had snow on the ground this morning. Still have some where it drifted. I'm sure, those in the Adirondacks and higher elevations on northern New England saw the same. High winds and heavy rainfall lead to lots of wind and flooding problems across the region. Winds are diminishing, and will continue to do so.
As high pressure move in, tonight will be quite cold. Saturday will start out cold. But we will see sun during the day. Winds will be light, but the air will still be quite cool. So beware of icy patches if you're driving around. A weak cold front along with a little disturbance swings through Saturday night into Sunday. This will reinforce the cold air that will be in place. The disturbance will bring rain and higher elevation snow showers to the region, but rain amounts won't be anything like we just went through. We will be dealing with a gusty west wind. With the cold air moving over the warmer waters of Lake Erie and Lake Ontario; those downwind of the lakes, can expect lake effect rain, with lake effect snow showers in the higher elevations.
Monday looks nice with seasonal cool temperatures. Tuesday might start with some sunshine. But then yet another frontal system will approach and move through later Tuesday into Wednesday. Once again we will see rain and higher elevation snow showers, with the colder air filtering in for the end of next week.
Yesterday's and today's storm marks a pattern change from the warmer October to a colder November. I expect most of November to be much colder than average.
