A Storm Lurks...

This past weekend has certainly been cold and we did manage to pick up a little bit of snow as well! Snowmaking has been non stop at the resorts and they are now open. Come Tuesday and Wednesay a storm will come up the coast and bring a mostly rain event with a little mixed precipitation on the front end but nothing to get excited for. Then it get's interesting after that as colder air will be in place and a second storm moves up the coast for Thursday into Friday. All models are currently showing snow except the Euro model, and the fact that the Euro isn't showing it makes me a bit skeptical if it's going to be rain or snow. One thing for sure is that the back side of that storm will get 6-10 inches of the white stuff, and right now the models are showing northwest Jersey in that area! Check out the models:

After this storm it looks like we will see a 4-6 day warm up followed again by colder air for the holidays. Check back in for updates all week long!
