A good start for ski country
The guidance trend continues to flatten out the the upper level trough, so the results of that means less enhancement. I've only made a subtle adjustment to what was posted here Tuesday afternoon.
Interior areas can expect some slick travel Thursday into early Friday.
This loop from 1 AM Thursday to 1 PM Friday shows the duration of the event. Precipitation moves into western and northern areas Thursday morning, then slowly sags southeastward to the coastal plain Thursday afternoon. The snow exits most areas by around daylight Friday morning. Low pressure forms along the front over Atlantic Canada and spins snow showers through eastern areas through Friday afternoon, ending Friday night.
After the frontal boundary passes through, the wind picks up from the west-northwest and ushers cold air. Wind chills in the teens and 20s statewide through Friday afternoon, and get chillier heading into Friday night. The wind settles down heading into Saturday, when high pressure takes over the area.
I will continue to track and update.
Get your snow tires on!
