Another Round of Significant Snow

As I was alluding to in an earlier comment this week, the hits seem to keep on comin’ this winter, and another one is on its way.
Although it’s a little further into the future than we usually forecast, computer models are agreeing strongly on the possibility of a major Nor’easter impacting the area on Wednesday-Thursday. The exact track and timing of this system are still in doubt, but on the whole, it looks as if major snow accumulations are becoming more and more likely for most of northern New England. Snow will probably begin sometime early Wednesday morning, and last through until Thursday morning. Winter Storm Watches have already been posted for nearly all of northern New England, and will most likely be upgraded to Warnings some time early tomorrow (Tuesday).
This is the latest in a seemingly endless winter of snow and cold. Up on Mt. Washington, we are already nearly three feet above normal for snowfall for this winter season, as of March 1st!
However, signs of the coming spring are on its way, as this storm looks to produce a rain-snow mix across southern NH and coastal ME, and probably a more heavy/wet snow scenario further north.
For more details on the forecast, keep an eye on our 36-hour higher summits outlook in the next day or two as the event approaches.
