Default Another Moderate Snow Storm 01/18-01/19/20

Good morning, After yesterdays moderate snows for the southern half of the state, Our air mass has turned sharply colder with some of the coldest temps of the season coming in on Friday night ahead of our next weather maker.


Low pressure will move across the lower great lakes east into NY state, Warmer air aloft will ride over the colder air at the surface so this is what we cal a SW snow event (SWFE), In these types of systems, Snow is wide spread over a large area which will encompass the whole state, A secondary LP tries to form late along the Maine coast which could enhance totals over that area.


Snow totals should be in the 5-8" category state wide with some higher amounts possible right along the coast if a low gets going, I will monitor today's model runs and will get a map out tonight, After this storm, We should be able to get some local riding in once projects can get out and work the trails, Stay tuned!!! gade

Heading to Bingham tomorrow morning. Is it looking like I should leave my kids some gas for the snowblower or just some wax for the shovels ? We only got a dusting of slush yesterday but we could be looking at 6+ down here Sat/Sun?

If the storm collapses, they can use the gas to ride around town instead of in the snowblower😁

Map time, A little coastal front enhancement so some higher totals on the coastal plain, Someone may even see 10" but could be isolated depending on where the coastal front sets up..............gade

Looks good. Hope it sticks around awhile. As is often my luck, I have to fly out tomorrow for a week for work. I knew this would happen.
