    March 2-4th ... first -NAO anchored storm perhaps in years

    I have zero idea what to make of this for the MWV/western Maine. Anyone got thoughts on that?

    There’s still rain in the forecast for the white mtns but the way the forecast discussions are written sounds like we may hang onto all snow. The GYX winter weather site has most likely snowfall is 5-6” here in Jackson but on the high end 2’. I’d say low confidence indeed. Hoping for the wobble to go our way - we are seriously hurting for snowpack. 2’ would only bring us back to about a 2/15 level of snowpack. Dwindling fast without a stellar March.

    I’ve got maybe 2 NNE peeps in these threads. Where are the fellow north country weenies? Everyone hoping to jack down south can please redirect to the whites? Seems reasonable. What can you do with it there besides turn on a snowblower and send your kid out to shovel! Let’s get the bulk of this north. Then we can dine on Hefeweizen and bbq and talk about how fun it was. Final call for 11” on my side of the valley.

    Agreed. My seat of the pants armchair observer intuition is going with 11” for my end of the MWV, more at wildcat.

    Nowcast storm for sure! I would be happier with bit more certainty so I know whether or not i’m running the race training mom shuttle with 4 pairs of skis or the we’re outta here going freeskiing shuttle!! Basically, it’s all about me and which skis I have to load in the am You have a guess as to whether we get precip before 0500?

    I am picking up the same vibe and have for the entire discussion about this storm from GYX. It’s interesting to see that we’re still only looking at 8-10” in my area. They have shifted upward over last 12hrs to account for the hints at a more westward solution.

    Loving this for me!! If we get 16” it will make Thursday insane!

    Sure hope so! GYX precip map has us in the 7" range, but any wiggle west will help us!! I don't know how to access all the fancy products you guys have so I was hoping someone could have a look! Typically anything west of Crawford Notch gets shafted with these coast huggers but Wildcat/Sunday River/Sugarloaf do well. 7" seems low for my intuition, just wondering what the actual science is hinting towards.

    Any change in the total qpf for eastern slopes of the whites and Western Maine? I want more than 7" dammit!

    I've been following the uncertainty in the track of this storm via the NWS forecast discussion updates for GYX. I've generally been a pessimist, but the afternoon update provided a ray of hope that the Whites and Western Maine could get some snow out of this one. And by "some" I mean a foot+. I'll take whatever we can get! Though I imagine most of it will be scoured off the trails with the intense wind setting up behind it. With forecasted highs on Sat topping out @ -5ºF (and that's for like the town of North Conway), it won't make for very enjoyable skiing/riding a lift. I hiked the Sherb today just to stay warm and get some skiing in. Christmas week was brutal! I've read a few pages back in this thread - seems there are some reasons to feel as though we could see a few more ticks to the west? GYX calling for a 7" event in my area at this point. Should I cross my fingers for good news tomorrow night?

    Based on radar and friends who have been drinking, thinking a bit north and east. Really think Bethel/Bridgton might jack. The Loaf, too, with colder temps.
