Damage In Tolland

Memorial Day Weekend Coastal/Snow

Recommended Posts

Yup...if nice wx is out the window let's make it a historically miserable weekend. Let's gun for some record low maxes.

One of my most memorable July 4th's was 1992 simply because of how wretched the wx was. Maybe this Memorial Day weekend can follow suit.

 

I'm working all weekend so I'm content with doom and gloom... especially if Kevin tweets pictures from soggy soccer fields while everyone wears parkas.

Yeah...Will mentioned the 1967 snow. It's too bad this is lining up on the same dates because the few days before and after would definitely be vulnerable at all of the sites.

 

Yeah the fact it lines up with the 1967 snow event makes those record maxes some of the toughest to beat in the entire month vs climo.

Sunday would probably be the best chance if we can keep the CCB cranking over us most of the day.There could be a shot at keeping temps near 40F in that setup. Saturday is likely to have 05z high temps.

We still have time to trend this better warmer and less rainy. How do Euro ens look today?

 

Still pretty ugly. I mean a hair better..but might be grasping for straws. I guess this could always close off further west and dryslot the Cape or something....but tough to polish a terd if you know what I mean. Perhaps it begins to trend better, but the trend as of late isn't really in our favor.

Any little bit helps all of us. It's not going to snow so let's trend things west and a little better. Would make all of us happier

I'd give it another day to work out the details...but set the standards low and dust off the early Spring gear.

Ive already posted an abysmal FB forecast to everyone going. My gut tells me though that where ill be may be in a relative nice spot as compared to most of SNE. I keep envisioning some type of pseudo dry slot or something

the thing with this time of year...as you know obviously...is the perception factor is so much greater in terms of how people view the weather. i'm pretty confident that sat/sun as a whole are toast. it's going to be unsettled and probably cold/crappy.

 

but if we end up with this occluded mess and the deep moisture pivots north and the low is positioned right...it's *possible* (not likely) this area could break out into partial sun and somewhat comfortable temps. and then it's a bust. and people are like wtf. lol

Yeah, I mean maybe we dryslot or something like kevin said, but unless this cuts off over BDR...you're still going to have raw northerly flow and probably low clouds. It's like trying to find the least "suckiest" solution...but it still sucks..lol.

One month earlier and Will may be ditching the wedding in VT for a Birch Buster.

 

Hell, 3 weeks earlier this month would have made it a lot more likely considering how close it is on guidance. I'll be riding up over 2k in N VT though if there is snow to chase. I think someone is going to see some snow in this...its just whether its only confined to the 'Dacks or if its a bit further east into the Greens.

The Dacks are higher but the cold pool looks a little further east under the best forcing from the upper low, so this might be one situation in which the Greens are more likely to see snow than the Adirondacks despite inferior elevation and generally warmer climo. We know from the 5/27/67 storm that it's definitely possible to see snow this late, even down to the Monadnocks, but we're at the very end of climo that supports snowfall for sure.

GFS would give catpaws to ORH, snow to the Greens, and coastal flooding. Nice.

Not that  am buying it, but would be neat to see something this late in May

 

I will be in North Adams Sat into Sunday... not sure of the elevation at the state park there...

 

Just checked... looks like 1500-2000 ft

 

neato

I don't think it'll be cold enough there...it's going to be really tough in Massachusetts. You really need the coastal to strengthen fast to entrain that cold air from the sprawling high over the Canadian Prairies.

Yeah... but I would be able to hit a 5 iron into VT where we will be... still, don't think it will be cold enough.

I'm just glad the humidity will be gone. Local forecast has 59/48 here Saturday, which will feel lovely after this muck. I couldn't sleep last night at all with the warmth.

Where you going to be? I can give some good high el spots to chase if need be...heck Smugglers Notch on RT 108 will be open at Stowe giving you 2,200ft but there are a lot of good spots in the northeast kingdom too that are over 1500ft. Jay Peak base area at 2000ft would be a good spot too with moist cyclonic flow...

Naturally I'll be in North Woodstock, CT unable to chase snow in the Greens.

I'll be right in Burlington, the wedding is just outside it. So I'll def go chase snow if its going to accumulate. I don't think I'll chase catpaws or a few mangled flakes.
