Late in the work week, residual moisture from the mid-week storm will continue snow showers at the higher elevation resorts in the north. These mountain snow showers will then move out on Friday and temperatures will be fairly seasonable into the first half of the weekend.
Things could get very interesting on Sunday, but at the time of writing this article, there is a lot of uncertainty in just how interesting it gets. All of the major forecasting models agree that a storm will begin to move up the Atlantic coast late on Saturday. How that storm then tracks is where the disagreement comes in. One of the models, the European one, shows that coastal storm slowly moving northward and hugging the coast as it does. This model also happens to be the one that was first to correctly forecast the big blizzard that slammed New England a couple of weeks ago. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the European model has the correct solution this time, but the model’s recent performance certainly is something to keep in mind. If the European model is correct, New England could be in for another big snowstorm.
Looking well into the future, there is the chance for another storm for more northern resorts in the Northeast around the middle of next week. Then, the general trend for even further out looks promising as well. Here’s to hoping for an active end to the month of February and a great start to March!
