Where and When will the 50 year storm hit

"Resort level snow will be likely next week, and in pretty hefty amounts if things stay on track. OWSweather.com Meteorologist Kevin Martin predicts a 50 year event. "

We need, and look forward to a pattern change. So far the official forecast is not nearly as dramatic as to call a 50 year event, but one thing is for sure. A cold front is arriving with strong winds and more precipitation than we have had so far (nearly none). The big question is whether a reinforcing source of moisture and energy will arrive. We have been here before and watched storms truely fizzle. January 4, 2008 was a good example where we got all excited for what was predicted to be over 10 feet of snow in the Sierra, only to see it end up at about 2 very needed feet, but lots of rain initially that cut back the accumulations and quality.

All together now, use your right arm and pull counterclockwise, and lets bring in this storm.

"Temperatures in Siberia, Russia will be -81 degrees this week, "said Martin. "With those type of temperatures the arctic air mass has to spill somewhere. Our answer of the exact track will become more clear this week. All residents in the mountain communities should prepare this week for very cold, winter weather, with snow."

If we could go one year without a January thaw/major rain event in the northeast; that's good enough for me (but i'll take all the cold and snow that mother nature is willing to send our way)

I am up for spreading the snow euphoria. I love speculating on huge snowfalls. It makes me extremely pumped for the epic skiing I "could" possibly have. No matter what happens with this storm, I think it is safe to say that 10 days from now bases at many ski resorts will have substantial increases. Here is the report from noaa for lcc:

Saturday: Snow. Cloudy, with a high near 28.

Saturday Night: Snow. Cloudy, with a low around 14.

Sunday: Snow likely. Cloudy, with a high near 22.

Sunday Night: Snow likely. Cloudy, with a low around 13.

Monday: Snow likely. Cloudy, with a high near 22.

Monday Night: Snow likely. Cloudy, with a low around 14.

Tuesday: Snow likely. Cloudy, with a high near 27.
