Think Snow, Tweet Snow !!!

Another day, another update and another upgrade !!

All the updates are keeping the SCWB very busy this season but for the most part, it hasn't been a bad thing. Our Monday storm is conforming to all of our wishes from a few days ago. It's stronger, it's farther north and much of Vermont will be in the sweet spot for a Monday powder-fest as a result. The storm is outperforming expectations across much of the Midwest and I expect this trend to continue across interior New England. Snow should begin right around daybreak and continue at a moderate to occasionally heavy rate through much of the day. The storm will proceed quickly eastward along the southern New England coastline and be offshore Monday evening. Snow will taper to flurries late in the evening and give way to a very chilly Monday night and Tuesday. Temperatures will struggle to get above zero on the mountain Monday and if it weren't for a stiff northeasterly wind, the snow would be very fluffy. The wind could keep the snow a bit more condensed however and I think snow totals will be in the 10-15 inch category.

Clipper system Wednesday should provide a nice little follow up as well after the chilly day Tuesday. Snowfall late in the day Wednesday could add another 2-5 inches before a reenforcing shot of chill arrives for late in the week.
