Greetings and welcome!

Finally some red meat!

We have a clipper coming for Thursday and Friday that could bring 4-6″ of snow. The models are showing it moving in late Thursday and stalling over us Friday before moving off to the east. The North American model is showing a rainfall equivalent of 0.5-0.75″. At a 10;1 ratio we could see a 4″ plus snowfall. The NWS is looking for some rain and freezing rain, which could bring down totals.

Missing from the latest models is the push of really bitter cold air. It will get colder, but not that bitter sub-zero at night and high of 5 stuff.

Right now we still have that same 2-4 on the ground. It is getting sturdy from the daily freeze/thaw cycle. The snow cover varies a lot. Some south facing hillsides are bare. Treated roads are bare. Semi-treated roads are bare where the salt/sand landed and have an almost rideable ice base.

I do not have an ice conditions report. There was a press release from the Sheriff’s Dept that a man tragically died when his truck went through on High Falls. It sounded like he slid off  of a small bridge by Pine Acres.

There are radar runs on High Falls this Saturday. The Twin Bridge Ski Team FB page says that they have an 800′ shaved track and a 2000′ wind down lane after it. They start early so get there early in the day.

That is about it for today. I will be keeping you up to date once it snows.

Have a good week and thank you for visiting!
