Snow is Back in the Forecast for the Northeast


Things have been rather quiet over the past week in the Northeast weather wise.  It got really cold over the weekend but the cold front wasn’t accompanied by snow like it normally is.  There hasn’t really been measurable snow in over a week.  Stowe has picked up a total of 1-3 inches in the past 7 days from multiple dustings.  That could change this week as snow is in the forecast through the weekend and again next week.

It won’t be very cold this week but it only needs to be 32 degrees to snow, sometimes not even, and we will have that on the mountains.  There is a weak system moving through tonight that may bring a dusting to the mountains.  The next storm will move through Thursday night into Friday.  This storm has a little more moisture and we should see around 1-3 inches across most of the mountains with 2-4 in New York and far Northern Vermont.  Here is the snowfall forecast from the GFS forecast model through Friday in inches.

There will be another weak system on on Saturday night that could bring another inch or two to the mountains.  What is interesting is the storm coming up and off the coast of the mid-atlantic coast at the same time.  With the ridge in the Atlantic this storm could turn a little further North and come up the coast if it phases with the Northern system.  We have tried this before and failed a few times this season but as long as it is on the table it’s better than not.  Here is the snowfall forecast through Monday and you can see snow work through the mid-Atlanic with the extra inch or two in the Northeast.

After the weekend things look quiet for Monday and Tuesday before another weak system moves through Wednesday and could bring a few inches of snow to the mountains.  The next chance for a bigger storm looks to be next Thursday.  That is a little far out but at this point it the forecast models show the storm cutting up West of the mountains through the Great Lakes like many of the other storms we’ve seen this season.  That usually means a snow to rain to snow scenario.  Here is a look at where the storm could be next Thursday.  The 540 line is pretty close to the rain/snow line for the mountains.
