No models showed snow west of Martha's Vineyard today... and most were OTS.

6 days out. Just today this has gone way east and is now coming back west. GFS went from way out to sea at 6z to a big western shift at 12z and a little more at 18z. 18z GFS is a monster of a storm. If that could end up in the Gulf of Maine winter would make a brief come back for many.

Good to know I'll definitely keep an eye on that. So far I've been driving the Legacy GT really carefully on anything slippery and pretty fast on open roads and highways. This car exceeded my expectations in every way and continues to impress just about every time I take it out for a drive... the pulls you can get even at highways speeds to pass someone are incredible and the handling is so sharp, I'd probably cry if I even scratched it.

What a mess. Looked good a few days ago, now looks like rain and freezing rain in ME thurs>fri.

Weather underground is the most optimistic site, so I'll keep looking at that one I guess....

I was originally planning to drive up to Sugarbush Thursday night after work to ski Friday and Saturday so I can be back home for family stuff on Sunday. I may need to reconsider with this forecast... :thumbdown:

Wow I'm really noticing a pattern this season..

Looks like Mt Tremblant might still get hammered. North VT-NH-Maine could have a decent stretch of weather relatively speaking too.
