The past week was certainly a good one for fresh snow across some parts of the Northeast. The resorts of the White Mountains of New Hampshire and Western Maine did especially well from the two large scale storms. Although the coming week will, overall, be drier, plenty of residual moisture from the midweek storm will mean that snow will continue to fall at the higher elevation resorts in the northern reaches of the region. This will be especially true in the Green Mountains of Vermont. By the time this coming weekend rolls around, resorts like Jay Peak and Stowe could see total snowfall amounts approaching two feet or more.
Temperatures into early next week will be just on the warm side of average for the most part. Highs will generally be in the mid to upper 30’s in the north and around 40 in the south. These temperatures will be very comfortable for skiing, but at the same time won’t melt the snowpack too quickly.
Around the middle of next week, some of the forecasting models are beginning to show a rather significant storm affecting the southern part of the Northeast. As of the writing of this article, this storm would bring heavy snow to southern New England and the Mid-Atlantic. Certainly nothing is written in stone with this storm though, just something to keep an eye on!
