    Interesting bits of data from MWObs on the "January Thaw":

    If the trend continues, the warmth will be over soon...
    All skiing is good. Some skiing isn't as good. But all skiing is good.

    This is the 2nd Tuesday storm in a row to do that! Both early forecasts were for warm rain, then 6" last week and 5" of sleet this time.

    Most good winters have the "thaw", and now (Jan 24th) right on cue, the "Parade" of storms into the west coast is ending with the storm currently coming or already onshore. Time for regime change. February rules the east.

    Yup we are entering into a 7-10 dry spell with the next potential storm hitting Colorado in early February. Powder days are gone for a bit. While we had a phenomenal snow run for he past 5-6 weeks, a break needed to come sooner or later.

    As you indicate, in past years February has been lean on snow accumulation while the east is favorable. However looking forward past this warm spell, there does not seem to be much in the form of major snow events at least for a couple weeks.

    Bingo! We lucked out twice.

    Looks like 4" north of Brattleboro on the webcams...and another coating of something frozen came through later in the AM.

    Looks like a wetter ban will come through tonight into tomorrow?

    What is amazing, it was warm before this storm and will be warm for a bit after it.

    We can hope for the return of cold temps though!

    Cold returns this weekend and potential 9 days out for a good snow storm late next week. Of the west dries, doesn't always translate to dry east. Often dry west = snowy east.

    I agree, often feed from the Gulf.
