Lol. NAM is legit snowstorm for many in SNE. That’s so cold down in the 900-925 layer once the system gets going. It’s like -3C at 925mb.

The NAM is a pretty solid look. Would be a fast but pretty significant thump of heavy, wet snow. I can't get a hold of how cold it is aloft. There is going to be one helluva band

Traces up and down I95.  Won't verify in the DC metro of course.

Can’t believe what some models are putting out for May 9th. Snow all the way to the coast. It’s hard enough to get snow in mid March here, and we’re taking two months later. About 6 weeks from it’s the summer solstice, highest sun angle of the year... just amazing.

Gfs is pretty weak 

If this were April 9th we probably would've had a legit snowstorm with temps in the 20s under this setup.

Euro was much more tamer. Still likes western areas and NNE. Gotta still watch though.

How much snow would take now to cause some power problems, 2-3”?

Looks like one of the biggest wild cards with this is the handling of the energy diving through the Plains and moving through the Ohio Valley. But just looking at the ulvl's (and on all models) it seems pretty prime for pretty significant cyclogenesis ...I guess it's just a matter of where this happens but I would wager at least parts of interior New England are going to get hit good and at least the NW Hills of CT.

Snow cold IDK

Google is my friend 

Turns out these airborne jewels are as tough as diamonds.

In cold weather, hummingbird bodies enter into an "energy-conservation mode called torpor," according to Oregon State ecologist Adam Hadley. Birds that stay north for the winter experience a nightly "mini-hibernation," in which their 107-degree body temperatures can plummet to 48 degrees.

Heart rates also slow during torpor: The blue-throated hummingbird’s heart rate, for instance, drops from 1,260 beats per minute to 50 to 180 beats.

So lets summarize where things are after the 06Z runs:  

GFS hits northern Virginia, NAM and Euro are SNE while the Canadian and Ukie are along the Canadian border.

Is this right?  Beautiful to see such model consensus 3 days out.
