A 45% chance of a major winter storm on Wednesday-Friday. The storm would strike all of New England this time including the resorts of New Hampshire, Vermont, Maine, and Mass.

...A SIGNIFICANT WINTER STORM MAY AFFECT SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND LATER
THIS WEEK...

ALTHOUGH IT IS STILL A FEW DAYS AWAY...THERE IS INCREASING CONFIDENCE
THAT A WINTER STORM WILL BRING THE POTENTIAL FOR HEAVY SNOW...STRONG
WINDS AND COASTAL FLOODING TO SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND THURSDAY INTO
FRIDAY.

IT SHOULD BE NOTED THAT EXACT DETAILS STILL NEED TO BE DETERMINED IN
THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. THE STORM COULD POSE LESS OF A THREAT THAN
CURRENTLY EXPECTED.

THE LATEST FORECAST IS FOR A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM TO STRENGTHEN
RAPIDLY AS IT TRACKS SOUTH OF LONG ISLAND THURSDAY MORNING...PASSES
NEAR CAPE COD AND NANTUCKET THURSDAY EVENING...THEN HEADS TO THE GULF
OF MAINE FRIDAY MORNING.

HEAVY SNOW COULD AFFECT MUCH OF INTERIOR SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND...
ESPECIALLY IN SOUTHWEST NEW HAMPSHIRE AND NORTHERN MASSACHUSETTS
WHERE THE HIGHEST TOTALS COULD OCCUR. AMOUNTS WOULD PROBABLY BE LOWER
FROM THE INTERSTATE 95 CORRIDOR TO CAPE COD AND THE ISLANDS SINCE
RAIN IS EXPECTED AT THE START...BUT EVEN THERE SEVERAL INCHES OF SNOW
MAY ACCUMULATE.

MINOR TO PERHAPS MODERATE COASTAL FLOODING MAY AFFECT THE EASTERN
MASSACHUSETTS COAST DURING HIGH TIDE AROUND MIDDAY THURSDAY OR LATE
THURSDAY NIGHT...DUE TO ASTRONOMICALLY HIGH TIDES AND ROUGH SEAS.

IN ADDITION...NORTH WINDS MAY INCREASE RAPIDLY BEHIND THE STORM
THURSDAY NIGHT ALONG THE COAST...AND MAY LAST INTO SATURDAY.

SINCE THIS POTENTIAL STORM IS STILL A FEW DAYS AWAY...IT WOULD BE A
GOOD IDEA TO PAY ATTENTION TO LATER STATEMENTS AND FORECASTS.

A big part of the rest or a few weeks of the season rides on this storm. :eek: It is going to get cold again we all know this, and with the chance of some early rain although who really knows at this point snow is a MUST!! No snow after big crowds and spring temps with some or little rain followed by colder temps means well you guys know ....:eek: It is almost a make or break storm at least for the next few weeks and who knows the way this year has been do I say the season? :blink: Well no its only Feb but the mountains are desparate for snow.

You can't see a Southern N.E. storm effecting Northern N.E. seriously. From what I read in that report, the only rain of consequence will fall in the Pat's home turf from I-95 to the Cape. The accumulated snows will be heavier outside of that area, but not in the Mountain states.

Beswift you're wrong. This storm is going intensify as it hits the gulf of Maine all points N and NE Interior New England will hit the jackpot. And keep an eye of another one next Mon-Tues

The NWS forecast for the MRV now has a 60% chance of snow for Wed/Thurs! I hope we can get up there to be able to get some turns in Thursday PM. Friday should be sweet, but I hope the wind mellows...

A WEAK STORM MOVING OUT OF THE OHIO VALLEY WEDNESDAY WILL BRING RAIN
AND SNOW TO SOUTHERN NEW ENGLAND AS IT MOVES PAST WEDNESDAY NIGHT AND
THURSDAY. IT IS TOO EARLY TO KNOW THE EXACT DETAILS OF THE UPCOMING
STORM AND THE TRACK IT WILL TAKE. HOWEVER...IT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO
BRING SEVERAL INCHES OF SNOW TO THE REGION BY THE TIME IT WINDS DOWN
THURSDAY NIGHT.

NOAA's still showing the Thursday-Friday advisories, though, so maybe this becomes a 3-day snowfest?

Everybody pray for it to head north a bit, too. We really don't need more snow down here.
No snow south of, say, Pat's Peak is my motto.
