Snowicane?

post #1 of 21

Is it a prophecy?

See my thread called hurricane before Katrina regarding my dream of a late season hurricane combining with cold air from the north. Only this time it may be two hurricanes ala, "The Perfect Storm" I have seen sporadic reports of this happening. What do you think? Is it possible? Will it happen? The suspense is killing me. If it does happen I foresee a snowy ultimate frisbee tourny this saturday followed by carving turns on sunday

Hope springs eternal. AccuWeather holds out the possibility, too...




If a super storm forms off the East Coast early this week, then look out for nasty weather in the Northeast Monday night into Tuesday. This powerful storm would be close enough to produce gale-force winds of 50 mph or greater along the coastline with heavy rain that could renew flooding problems that have plagued the region this month. In addition to the heavy rain and damaging winds, enough cold air could be drawn into the system to change the rain over to a heavy, wet snow in the mountains of New England. Check back with AccuWeather.com headlines to see updates to the development of this potentially severe storm system.

Darn you guys have all the luck, or you can look at it the other way and say you get none, but me? I think that is just awsome luck if you get the "worst case scenario"

If we get the wet sloppy snow they are talking about it will be a great start for a base! But a cold day in hell before that happens now! Not gonna happen, not cold enough. But the east will always ski regardless. Always have at least man made.

From my meteorolgist...

I mentioned last week that a shot of some pretty cold air would come through this week, and that still looks to be the scenario. Rain will move up into the region from the south around midnight tonight. Hurricane Wilma will move up the Atlantic between the East Coast and Bermuda. No landfall will occur along the coast. However, a low pressure system will be spinning in New England tomorrow, and this will pull Wilma’s moisture into the Northeast. Heavy rain will fall throughout the day on Tuesday. The rain will begin to let up late morning on Wednesday. Total rain from midnight Tuesday morning through noon Wednesday will be 2.00” to 2.50” inches. With this low is a cold front with very chilly Canadian air behind it. Don’t be surprised to see a few snow flakes late Tuesday night and during the day on Wednesday. Highs will only be around 40-43 degrees and lows will be in the upper 20s in some spots. High temperatures will moderate slowly as the weekend approaches. Lows, however, will remain around freezing. Heavy snow will fall this week in the much higher elevations. With the remnants of Wilma and the cold air in the mountains, places like Mount Washington, NH could experience their own “snowicane” with strong winds and heavy snow. It will remain dry over the weekend with possible shows on November 1st.

Although I am hoping for you NE folks to get pounded, it looks more like a near miss:

LMFAO, Are you serious powder? Of course the hurricane is gonna nearly miss us. They always do. We will still get a shitload of precipitation from it. Not to mention the other storm brewing we have the ingredients for some serious snow in the mountains! This is the beautiful eastern weather at its finest. Gonna be a good winter

Its been a lot of years since a Halloween opening in Western NY or SW Pa. but I do remember it happening. 7-8 years ago 7 Springs opened up on Nov. 17th with a great base on the front side and boot top powder on opening day.

Indeed I remember a few openings by halloween in north eastern NY. Pray for us

They are not predicting the actual hurricane to hit us but the low generated from it combined with the cold air to make a nor-easter like storm.

While we might get lucky enough to see some semi frozen, snow like substance in the next 36 hours around 7S, it will be far too warm between now and mid Nov for a mid Nov opening. We're still looking at Thanksgiving at the very earliest...if we're lucky. I'm gonna go out on a limb and say we open sometime around Dec 2nd or 9th.

Yes, but it has to tap into the moisture of that low, which looks too out to sea to even do that.

Look at a satellite picture of the eastern US, you can see wilma down by florida and most of her moisture is up by the carolinas already with a large bank of clouds up the coast and out a thousand miles or so into the atlantic near Boston. Wilma doesn't have to be anywhere near the coast for her moisture to get sucked inland, once hurricanes get this far north they get tossed around a lot and torn apart.

There is currently a low pressure system over NY/PA that will move slightly off coast and draw a lot of moisture from Wilma and mix it in the the cold temperatures to the north and west, producing strong winds, heavy rain near the coast and heavy wet snow over higher elevations inland.

This is a pretty typical 'big storm' coastal set up with an abnormal amount of moisture from the hurricane.

The snowfall in the mountains and high areas of New England and New York will be measured in Feet. The "Perfect Storm" 2 will happen.

As of 12:30 the rain has changed to snow in QUechee which is at about elevation 500-1000 feet. They must be getting pounded up on Killington.
