LINK FIXED

It seems the nation-wide forcast is for a more southerly storm track, which this depicts. Should make for a hell-of-a season for the mid-atlantic.

The season is indeed starting slow, although the current Mt Mansfield snow depth is almost exactly at average.

Seems it has been warm and moist lately. I'm not a meteorologist, but from some first hand experience, cold & dry in the northeast isn't always a good thing. Cold and dry can scare away moisture and freeze up the Great Lakes quickly. Warm and moist can be beneficial for huge dumps in the higher elevations. Especially in December. Lets hope.

Anyone with more meteorological savvy want to elaborate more about whats going on and what might happen? Let's hope this is not a repeat of 2006/2007 early season. I remember mountain biking in January with a t-shirt...for a couple weeks!!!

It looks like a huge shot of rain in the next 18 hours in NE, then good snowmaking temps (at least in northern NE) with some natural thrown in, plus the 'mystery storm' that might put snow down in the Cats and southern/Central NE over the weekend.

I really doubt this is doing a lot of damage to the ski areas' bottom line...yet. This time of year they don't make money, though the lack of snow in the cities and the lack of open areas might scare people off near-term, but X-Mas bookings are usually done far in advance.

Now, if things crap out and they can't get much open for the holidays, then they are screwed.

EDIT- Just looked at Accuweather: accumulating snow forecast for Louisiana and Mississippi in the next 24 hrs...go figure.

Not again!

Remember snowmaking is not only about the correct temps but more importantly the dew point. When fog is forecasted typically the dew point is no good for snowmaking.

And the latest (just in) model run of the NAM model shows a much farther north track - with major snows for all of New England. Stay tuned!

That model did the best with the last event last week and nailed it here in eastern NY.

If there were a 'smily' for crossed fingers and toes, I'd use it. It would be a nice X-mas present for the ski areas... keep us updated.
