and the this range would increase except I am a bit concerned that the mid level center of this storm will pass relatively close to the mountain. Snow will continue to fall at very good rate through the rest of the day Wednesday into Wednesday evening with accumulations close to the bottom of our range. The proximity of the mid level center of this storm can also mean that we can get impacted by a dry slot as the storms moist conveyor gets pushed too far to the north. This may happen briefly late this evening before snow returns to MRG for several of the AM hours Thursday.
The energy and moisture with the weekend system will remain off the Atlantic coast. There is a weak disturbance which will help solidify the upper trough in the east and this will leave a window of "terrain-induced opportunity" early Saturday. That was flowery but it translates to a light accumulation of snow early Saturday along with some chilly temperatures. Readings this weekend will be a few degrees below zero in the morning and rise into the teens Saturday and 20's Sunday.
Models are having a bit of fun with a system early next week. It will be milder by then and the possibilities are very wide ranging and they do include ice and rain and one end and all snow on the other.
Have fun with the snow and I will try to give a more in depth update on Friday.
