Two Opportunities for Snow

As we barrel towards February break--only two weeks away for most of our readership--we have two snow events to look forward to this week.

The first is Tuesday night. This system is an AC (see acronyms on the right) and will not generate more than an inch of snow. This AC is still part of the series of minor disturbances that we talked about last week. We don't see any reason to get too excited about this one. Afternoon and evening activities should not be affected on Tuesday.

For Friday, we have a horse of a different color. The old European model is back and has predicted a not insignificant storm for Friday morning. We would see a clipper from the north combine with a low pressure system from the south and make a big coastal storm. Some rain could mix in with this storm, but if the European model is correct, we would be looking at a storm capable of producing 6-8 inches for Friday. And the timing of this one would be perfect.

We'll let you know when we learn more about Friday's potential big snow event.
