Snow, Snow, Snow

Sunday Night’s Possible Culprit

The snow machine has cranked!

We received 6.6 inches of snow yesterday from the Clipper system that passed over the region, with another .7 inches falling overnight. Since the departure of that storm, the flow has shifted around to the west, which has combined with a passing upper-level trough to produce ideal upslope snow conditions. As a result, snow has continued to fall throughout this morning, with gusty west winds creating incredibly poor visibility (no more than 25 feet all morning).

After this round of snow has abated, the next one will be right on its heels! A coastal system has revealed itself in the computer models for Sunday night and early Monday, which has the possibility to blossom into a significant Nor’easter. The models are in pretty good agreement right now, but a slight wobble in the projected path of this storm could make a huge difference (3-6 inches vs. 12-15 inches). For now, we’ll have to wait and see!
