GET TO NEW ENGLAND NOW!
The powder chase is on especially if you own a split board in the East as “northern New England is going to get dumped on.” “Pre- Thanksgiving faceshots are guaranteed if you are up there especially Monday and perhaps again early Tuesday” The highlights include the northern Adirondacks, central and northern Vermont and perhaps northern New Hampshire. Most resorts aside from Killington are not open so start hiking if you are up north (Check your areas uphill hiking restrictions). We really like Monday!
Light snow will be falling over a large area of New England starting between 2-5 AM Sunday. Moderate snow intensity can be expected over the Adirondacks. Snow intensifies over all areas Sunday night/Monday with storm ski conditions peaking by mid day. Areas open like Killington should see 2-4 during the day Sunday and another 5-8 overnight into Monday. Snow will continue to fall through Monday afternoon (Additional amounts likely especially central and northern areas). New Hampshire will see lower amounts near Conway and heavier amounts north to the Canadian border. “Even the Berkshires will get into the action according to some models that we have looked at especially on Sunday where moisture is focused in western MA pushing north into central Vermont” The latter part of the storm (Monday/Tuesday) is focused up north.
In Northern Vermont, New York State to the Canadian border colder temperatures and upslope orographics will keep snow falling through Tuesday. “Total snowfall in areas like Jay Peak, Whiteface, and perhaps Stowe should range in the 12-17 inch range through Tuesday night.”
Many resorts are opening in New England next week (On or near Thanksgiving day) just in time for another system that rolls in on Turkey Day albeit light.
The West coast is still on track for a decent dump over the Sierra which makes a Bee Line for northern Arizona, Southern Colorado, and New Mexico early next week. Wind Shift to the West in northern and central Colorado could fire up some moderate surprises late in the storm cycle.
