    At this point ill gladly settle for not rain in northern NH. Any accumulating snow would be a bonus.

    100% with the EURO, NYC is still looking for their 50" that was promised on 1/25/2015 and 2013 when Branford and SW CT HAD 4-5' on the ground instead of NYC. It develops systems too quickly. Very interesting to see the RGEM in line with it though. RGEM started off last year great then lost it, it was very good on 12/18, 12/30, the wasted Blue Hill Mauler system last weekend. Hoping it keeps up!

    *EDIT* - 12z NAM hi res came in colder like the EURO/RGEM
    Um....so, for the idiots like me.....is what you are saying good or bad?

    My wife and I are both of the opinion that trees make steeps easier. Something about that vertigo, it's nice to have a vertical frame of reference at least in the peripherals.

    NAM 3k puts the bullseye on Killington and Pico. Let's see.

    I'll be shooting first Berkie Wednesday, Magic Thursday. Hoping and thinking, for a widespread 5-9" deal from northern Mass to the ski areas of southern VT, thinking the southern NH areas like Pat's, Crotch, Ragged, etc. jackpot.

    GFS, EURO, 3KM, RGEM...

    Let's hope this storm hits big and chase the snow where ever it lands-- next week is starting to look like a real shit sandwich. Some potential #$&% next Tuesday.

    If next week can turn into a snow surprise like this one that would be beautiful though. Looking pretty warm though..

    Thermal profiles and locations of high pressures (just like the one in Atlantic Canada next week) have absolutely sucked this year on the GFS, thus the constant warm rain to mix/snow events within day 5 or so. It wouldn't shock me if that thing ended up trending crazy south and becoming another Cape Cod crusher lol.

    Southern NH still wins, Berkshire's might be screwed.

    I dont really post in the weather threads anymore, but put me down for thinking this one might possibly over-perform expectations.

    12z models are juicier but ratios will be under 10:1.
