Nor'Easter Alert!

The L's are Lining Up

The first winter storm of the 2010-2011 season appears to be on its way to the higher summits of New England, and its a Nor'Easter.

From the Mt. Washington Observatory's Higher Summits Forecast:

"Precipitation will be heavy at times and although this storm should see mostly snow on the higher summits, with temperatures hovering right around freezing, rain, freezing rain, sleet, or wet snow can be expected this afternoon through Friday. The one problem of sorts playing into the forecast is the possible development of a secondary low over the Great Lakes. If this occurs, it will play into how much precipitation we receive but more importantly, what type of precipitation we receive. If the secondary low works in sooner, temperatures will be lower and snow will be dominate but if it works later, rain will be the bulk of the precipitation. I went with the snowier model this morning as its initialization was more in line with current conditions."

The guys over at Famous Internet Skiers have a great post on the impending arrival of winter.

Dust off the junkboards and call your friends in the North Country.  There might be some skiing this weekend!
