Is it time to start discussing this as a potentially significant event? Looks like 3 of the 4 major models are in agreement, but I will defer to the experts for more analysis.

If you look at the models, I think it's going to slide too far to the east to have much of an impact, but at least everyone (other than Poconos) would get some snow. Would be good for ME though. Hopefully the models are wrong and this thing kicks west a bit. It's not like the models have been handling these storms well, so who knows. Think Snow!

PLEASE BE SO!

I'm leaving for NH, and ME, early Thursday Morning, looks like the models have shifted South, but still in NE. Hope I didn't jinx myself.

Dammit. You guys have not had any ski/board pyre sacrifices to Ullr this season. What did you expect!

BTW, I'm going to be in NVT this F/S. I'm in good with Ullr. 6-7" in the last two days. You have been warned.

Isn't that Tuesday?

No; that snapshot in time is Saturday morning. The Euro has beantown getting clobbered with a blizzard.

If that model verifies, you might want to consider Magic, the 9" on that map could lead to even more with elevation. Of course, it's not like Smuggs or Jay would suck with 6" or 7".

I'm hoping so. Summit weekend? Fresh powder? That would be insanely awesome. Fingers crossed.

The Summit forecast "grade" could be bumped up to an A...ME and S NH would be most favored by this but this has big time whiff potential too, so I'm not doing cartwheels just yet.

Caution is definately the word, but this one has the weather boys over at Americanwx yelping. I still think the best is yet to come for this season from the Pocono's northward.

I tend to agree that Feb works better for us. Conditions across the Pacific translate to more favorable conditions for east coast storms--sort of what we had at the beginning of the season. With this storm in particular, I worry about the lack of downstream blocking to keep the track close as this could easily slip right out to sea. But hey, at least it's something to get excited about, right? :)

No matter what we are still going to get 3-6 inches of snow at the minumum. Even if the storm goes out to sea on Friday night, the strong clipper moving through on Friday will deliver snow.

Wow, this would be one helluva storm if this pans out.

Hazardous weather outlook national weather service taunton ma 414 pm est tue feb 5 2013

this hazardous weather outlook is for northern connecticut...central massachusetts...eastern massachusetts...northeastern massachusetts...southeastern massachusetts...western massachusetts...southern new hampshire...northern rhode island and southern rhode island. .d

.days two through seven...wednesday through monday. Confidence continues to increase in the potential for a very significant winter storm friday into early saturday. While light snow may have developed friday morning...the worst of the storm looks to occur friday afternoon into early saturday. The exact details of the storm remain uncertain since the event is still 72 hours in the future. However...there is the potential for a foot or more of snow in some locations. The main uncertainty at this point is how far west the heaviest snow will reach into the distant interior. The other concern is will there be any mixing along the coastal plain that would cut down on potential snow accumulations.
