    Regardless of the outcome, New York City and parts of the Tri-State, including Long Island, are going to be in a precarious situation Sunday night and Monday. We’re almost better off getting that 12-18″ of all snow than any changeover to mix or liquid.

    A deep freeze is coming Sunday night into Monday; and for all of you old folks out there like me, if we get any liquid or mix involved in this, it’ll look like the episode of Tom & Jerry when they froze the kitchen.
    I'm hoping for a dramatic change in the next 48 hours.

    Great write-up and analysis---definitely helps us plan. Looks like Ragged (where I will be all wknd) is in a good spot!

    The "good" thing is even in non powder days on Holiday weekends, a good percentage of the couple of time a year masses over do their under used ski muscles on Saturday, then only take a few runs on Sunday and often bag Monday. Add in a bunch of powder, and my guess is that demographic takes even less runs than normal on Sun/Monday!!

    Sunday night though, ski area bars may be quite full with football fans though...

    The Bruce Jaques show at Mount Snow in Cuzzin's could be even wilder than usual for sure!!

    I'm with Drjeff. Add in some frigid temps and wind and i think the bigger problem will be keeping warm. Only die hards will be skiing, although the mountain lodges and parking lots will be packed. Pro tip-wear your bat thermal underwear-and allow your package to warm up in the lodge for a while before attempting to pee-----shrinkage factor.

    My house is definitely in the rain zone.

    Im feeling quite conflicted. Though the ski condition is looking rather horrible. Staying home may not be any safer either...

    As me and my dental school friends who I have season tickets to the Patriots say on COLD weather game days when "nature calls".... Keep tugging at various layers until it feels good, and then you know it's time to go!! Lol!!!

    And on a side note, if the Patriots were hosting the AFC CHAMPIONSHIP on Sunday night, given the forecast, how CRAZY would that game be?!?!

    On the flip side, I'm glad Sunday evening, all I have to do while in VT is walk about 100 yards down the street in my condo complex to my friends condo who offered to host a party for the Pats game!!

    Looking pretty good for SoVT according to NWS...12-20"....with up to two feet in the Southern Greens.

    We won't be heading up this weekend, so we're riding this out in the flatlands. It'll be interesting to see how many people actually venture up north tonight for the long weekend.

    This is funny..I'm hoping for 8 to 10 in Wyoming and it looks like parts round here may get up to 2 feet. Well I hope so ..nothing like coming back to a buried East.
    Frozen granular?

    anecdotal evidence of course, but pretty much everyone I have talked to is going skiing this weekend.

    It's going to be jammed. I expect sunday AM to see cars in ditches everywhere.
