Weather radar is showing a ferocious front driving west right now extending below NJ and way up into Quebec. Yowza.

Watching from the window as a few confused, lonely snow flakes wandered around the yard then WHAMMO, a downdraft carried a mini-squall in and it was instant snow globe. Much better! Not that it's going to amount to anything, but I'll take what I can get.

MRG weather blog about Tuesday storm wrote:The intensity of the chill will relax just somewhat on Monday but by then we will be watching what appears to be a sizable winter storm. This folks, is our best shot at big snow since the middle of February and it could prove to be one of the biggest winter storms for the entirety of New England spanning the whole season. Cold air, jet energy and a plethora of Atlantic moisture are all present, but we just have to hope that Vermont get a full dose of the results. We could get innocuously grazed or we could get the 2-footer we've been looking for. Right now, confidence is high that a strong low pressure center will be in the vicinity of Cape Cod on Tuesday evening March 14th but it all depends on how close this system is to the coast once it consolidates. Most of the potential snowfall would fall Tuesday in such a scenario.

yes, there are promising storm clouds on the horizon! Plenty of base left in the mountains too, I just got back from a trip up to Hojo's, the entire mountain is in the process of turning to frigid white concrete, poor timing but classic New England for the inaugural Mount Washington Backcountry festival this weekend. At least the party will go off as planned:

Take a look at the summit forcast on WU. 1"-3" tonight 1"-3" tomorrow and <1 for Friday. A summit inch can be six inches to over a foot in the gullies and it can also be a risky 2 feet in perfect conditions.

I'll be GOS on Saturday, digging a bit just because. However, I am expecting 6"-10" of buff and/or sastrugi if this mornings forecast holds good.

there's snow on the radar now, hopefully it will come through, it's been a good year up there. It's going to be a bit brisk up there Saturday. I'd love to attend some of the events, not sure if I can get away this weekend. in other news the storm next week is looking good.

part I came through - 3.4" at the summit last night.

Tuesday storm is starting to look epic, the forecast for eastern Mass. has been revised to 12+ inches.

Found just over 3" on rough crust at 3200' in the Western Whites. An inch and a half at 1900. Hoping for Tuesday's storm to fill in all the holes.....

so there was something for skins to stick to. The Saturday night event looked fun, I'll to have to make it next year.

I like the sound of this - hopefully the mountains will get some backlash snow after it passes. This winter has been good for some big ocean storms.

>>>By Tuesday morning, snow should be breaking out across New England and it will last through the majority of the day and into the evening. There is also some trailing energy behind this storm, which means we’ll have to monitor the chance that areas of snow could continue to develop and swirl about New England well into the day on Wednesday with some additional accumulations, albeit less intense snowfall during that time.

A good starting point for snow totals is looking like 1 to 2 feet. Naturally at this range, some of those numbers may change over the next couple of days. Inland snow is looking like it should be pretty fluffy at the moment, with a wetter consistency toward Cape Cod and the Islands.

My most recent NE weather go to page is the NWS regional "decision support briefing". Insightful, no hype synopsis.

cool, thanks for the link. Looks like we may have a nice storm coming our way, with more snow at elevation.

strange, one forecast for my area says 20 inches of snow is coming, another says 1 inch. Looks like the potential for 2 feet in southern VT/NH/Berkshires
