Euro shows major snowstorm

This weekend will be a not one but two storms. On the 20th Storm number 1 will come through and bring mostly a rain event will a mix on the north side. This storm is mostly a rain maker, but storm number 2 on the 22nd could be a major snowstorm. The GFS and DGEX are going with a warmer solution but the EURO is showing a massive Nor' Easter going up the coast laying down significant snowfall. Before I am going to jump to conclusions I want to see consistency in the model runs, but for now, let's not get excited just yet.

I love this website. Again, fantastic job. Can't wait for the 22nd, but it better get cold before, so the snow can stick! How massive are we tlaking in inches? oh and what do you think will go on tonight and tommorowweather wise? THANKS!

Well if the Euro model is correct I would say 6-9 inches, but its only one run of the model and things can and probably will change.

And as for tonight, accumulations should be on the light side and at most two inches in the higher elevations (High Point, Sunrise Mountain, Hopatcong, Mount Olive, West Milford, Top half of Creek, etc). It's a hit and miss type storm, it's more snow showers than a large swath of precip.
