Cannon, Wildcat pretty much the same. Anywhere in the high peaks. Wednesday 7-8" fresh.

I like optimists, but let's be realistic!! This is Wednesday's forecast for the summit of Mt. Washington(6,288'), posted by the observatory.

Wednesday:
In the clouds w/ mixed precipitation showers early transitioning to all rain, which may be heavy at times. Snow and sleet accumulations 1-3 inches.

High: Low 30sWind: SW 45-60 mph increasing to 60-80 mph w/ gusts up to 105 mph.Wind Chill: 5 below to 5 above

I think that these guys have a little more insight than onthesnow.com. Just saying......

Feel free to keep posting this nonsense if it makes you feel better about this current lack of snowfall.

Way too much warm air for that to happen I think. Freezing levels will be way above 6,000ft even, so it won't even perform at elevation. Going to have to wait for the weekend it looks like.

On The Snow has never let me down. Been using it for 3 years faithfully. They know what's up.

Lets make a bet .. Zero accumulating snow on Wednesday vs 6" like on the snow says(which likes snow to drive people to its site). Theyre the last people you should go to for an honest forecast.

I guess you used them for your Dec. 27 prediction of a foot too. Didn't happen.

yes, complete swing and a miss

Everyone hopes you're right Tuna, but COME ON. This thread and your weather excitement this week...........pretty lame given what even the non-observer can predict on weather.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a skier, I love the optimism and would want to hug it out with you if your predictions come true. That said, I've got zero faith in your forecasting

Matt Noyes at NECN (who I have a lot of faith in) is predicting some snow at the very outset of this storm but whatever might fall will certainly be washed away and then some by the predicted 1 inch rain event.
