Reserved for the mad river valley. MRG sat. to burn up two unused Mad card tickets, and maybe sunday too....or Magic?!?!?! we'll see. Really my last free weekend of the season, so short of a day trip to the pokes, this will wrap it up for me, so I'm totally stoked about this....

Okay... apparently I'm friggin' inept when it comes to using the NWS site...

Can someone link me to the different Expected Snowfall outlets so I can favorite them? I found Boston and Albany, NY... but lost other than those 2. Boston: https://www.weather.gov/box/winter

I'm honestly getting aggravated with myself... this shouldn't be that hard!

At the risk of going total slut... check out our weather pages:

http://nyskiblog.com/weather/
http://nyskiblog.com/weather/new-york/
http://nyskiblog.com/weather/aly/
http://nyskiblog.com/weather/btv/
http://nyskiblog.com/weather/gyx/

There are about 10 in total. We've got links to point forecasts for most of the mountains, ski reports and webcams.

Sick day for me will be Thursday.

Less stressful driving, give the slope a chance to get covered up by more snow...

Replace “box” in the URL with the appropriate NWS forecast office, so

Boston: https://www.weather.gov/box/winter
Albany: https://www.weather.gov/aly/winter
Burlington: https://www.weather.gov/btv/winter
Binghamton: https://www.weather.gov/bgm/winter
Portland: https://www.weather.gov/gyx/winter

Here are all the abbreviations for all 122 offices:

School scheduled for early dismissal at 10AM (and expecting snow day tomorrow and Friday happens to be a day off thanks to "staff development" day). Car scheduled to leave the drive at 10:30AM. Relocating my office North for a few days. :spread:

Looks like NWS dialed things back slightly. But still very good looking! Light dusting in SoVT from what I can see on the ol' cams.

Boss is in a meeting, when he gets out I will be telling him, "after 2:30 today, you won't see me until Monday."

Try http://www.stormhamster.com/snow.htm - has links to both the pinpoint (NWS Storm Pinpoint) and range (NWS storm range) forecast for each of the NWS offices.

HIGHLY recommend the page owner's twitter feed (https://twitter.com/crankywxguy) for both advance outlooks and real-time analysis of storms as they play out. The entries from 3/3, 3/5, and 3/7 on http://www.stormhamster.com/resource.htm have watched the ingredients for this system as they move downstream in awesome detail.

Back to lurking...

Wow,MRG says its expecting 15-30 inches?Thats a bit of stretch seeing all the forecast snowfall that I've seen.

Maybe not if that total is by Saturday with the very likely back side upsloping that should be happening for NVT as this storm pulls away...

That total in say the next 24hrs or so may be a stretch, but there's going to very likely be some appreciable upsloping going on with this storm...

They're taking that from the "single chair weather blog", and I have absolutely no idea where that guy is getting anywhere near 30" as there was absolutely no guidance to support it in any of the models. Didn't see anyone else go anywhere near that big for the area either, but that guy is almost always quite "snowptimistic" for whatever reason, though cynics might have their theories.
