Would you believe Minnesota is getting up to 7 inches of snow meanwhile just an hour south there's Tornado watches and 3 hours south theres a Tornado Warning right now. At least snow is still falling east of Rockies.

I'm liking the chances of snow around the 23rd. Most likely for elevations above 3000' but maybe some flakes flying around below that.

Latest GFS has 10" for the high peaks. Might be over doing it but there is a big system thats being shown consistantly.

More later.

I'm putting myself out on the line. This is the first winter in over seventeen years that I did not even start the snowblower. Tuned it up this past fall and that was it. I am however mowing the lawn this afternoon. Today is a summer day for sure. The smell of fresh cut grass and even leaves on some of the trees.
FYI, I will not snowblow even if we get two feet of snow.

Well, you can't win em all, vter... I cut the grass yesterday and even the usual wet spots were almost dried up. We had a solid day of rain last week but you'd never know it now. Big change in the trees today between sunup and sundown - I noticed quite a bit of green toward day's end. Also starting to pick up a few bugs on the windshield.

lol.. You guys are funny...apparently the Euro model is listening. The latest 00z has snow for most in the NorthEast as a cold front comes through first. I'll post pic later on.

Get ready for some needed rain Saturday-Monday. 2-3" is likely.

"FORECAST BECOMES QUITE A BIT MORE UNSETTLED GOING INTO THE WEEKEND AND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK WITH SEVERAL FEATURES BRINGING CONSIDERABLE AMOUNTS OF RAINFALL TO THE REGION. A NORTHERN STREAM SHORTWAVE TROUGH ENTERS THE REGION SATURDAY WITH PRECIPITATION FOCUSED ALONG THE AFOREMENTIONED STALLED BOUNDARY. HAVE INTRODUCED LIKELY POPS TO THE FORECAST AT THIS TIME PER MODEL TRENDS OVER THE LAST FEW DAYS. SATURDAY NIGHT INTO SUNDAY...

THIS NORTHERN STREAM TROUGH PHASES WITH A CUTOFF LOW MOVING INTO THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE AND A CONSIDERABLE AMOUNT OF MOISTURE (PWATS 200+% OF NORMAL) STREAMS INTO THE NORTHEAST ALONG THE CONTINUED STALLED BOUNDARY. THIS NOW DEEP SYNOPTIC LOW OVER THE MID-ATLANTIC AND NORTHEAST IS SLOW TO MOVE OUT OF THE REGION WITH BLOCKED FLOW OFF THE ATLANTIC COAST UNTIL WEDNESDAY.

THE END RESULT IS A PROLONGED PERIOD OF STRATIFORM RAIN FROM SATURDAY THROUGH MONDAY...EVENTUALLY BECOMING MORE SHOWERY IN NATURE MONDAY NIGHT AND TUESDAY AS THE LOW BEGINS TO PULL AWAY. WHILE THE FINER DETAILS OF EXACT RAINFALL AMOUNTS IS HARD TO FORECAST AT THIS TIME...IT SEEMS REASONABLE TO THINK 2-3" OF RAIN IS POSSIBLE THROUGH MONDAY AT THIS TIME."

No question in my mind there will be snow with this weekends storm. The question is where and how much.

I'm thinking you'll be able to see white caps on your backdrops there.

Maybe 3-6" above 4000' Monday into Tuesday.

Here's the latest CMC model. GFS agrees. Waiting for Euro to come out now. Everyone should start as rain (a lot of it) but as the Cold air filters down into the moisture it will change to snow at higher elevations.

Wow - we are going to get soaked! Timing could be a little better, though. How about starting Sunday evening instead of Friday afternoon...
