5-10 inches of snow for the first Monday in March

The mountains in Georgia might beat this go round but we got to let them have a few and keep them in the game. Even cities like Atlanta are experiencing some heavy snow and should see an impressive accumulation before it tapers off Sunday evening.

Fine Tuned Details
Heavy snow will fall along and east of the Blue Ridge mountains stretching from the Carolinas north through Virginia as the storm moves off the Atlantic Coast and travels north-north east on a trajectory that will take it just east of Cape Cod and the eastern tip of Maine. Such a track will mean that much of the state of Maine will, for the second time in 10 days, be a storm sweet spot. Vermont will be situated on the western edge of some of the heaviest snow. If the storm could attain some additional strength it would enhance and broaden the zone of frontogentic forcing and mean an extended period of heavy snow across the state. As is, much of the will be of the light or moderate variety and should begin within a few hours of daybreak Monday. The snow should continue through the day and into the evening totaling 5-10 inches. Gusty north winds will blow down the spine of the Green Mountains and this will continue into Tuesday as precipitation becomes snow showers. Temperatures will be chilly throughout holding in the teens Monday and remain closer to 10 on Tuesday.

Temperatures will warm by the end of the week and we may get some wet snow leading into the weekend. Enjoy !!
