Short-Term Forecast:


A system will cross the eastern US and bring 10-20″ of snow to ski resorts in the Northeast through Friday.

This system does not look overly strong but will eject large amounts of moisture into the region.

This combined with cold air over the interior Northeast will result in high snowfall totals.

Some locations may begin as rain but snow gets started Wednesday night/Thursday morning and fills in from west to east through the day Thursday.

Snow will continue, heavy at times, before tapering off late in the day Friday and into Friday night.

This has led to widespread Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Storm Watches across the Northeast.
