Whats the record for shortest thread? laugh.gif

Some good technical info from BTV. I highlighted the snow talk.

"QPF FIELDS OFF THE GFS/NAM BOTH SHOW OVER 1.0" POSSIBLE NEAR JAY PEAK TO MANSFIELD...WITH LESS THAN 0.10" AT BTV...SHOWING THE VERY SHARP PRECIP GRADIENT
WHICH IS VERY TYPICAL OF THESE EVENTS. THERMAL PROFILES WL BE
TRICKY...WITH BEST POTENTIAL FOR ACCUMULATING SNOWFALL ON MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUES MORNING ABOVE 1500 FT ACRS THE CENTRAL/NORTHERN GREENS. ON MONDAY...FEEL BL TEMPS WARM BTWN 1 AND 3C...WITH 925MB TEMPS NEAR 2C...WHILE 85H TEMPS STAY BTWN -2C AND -4C...SUPPORTING SNOW LEVELS ABOVE 2500FT.

HOWEVER...THESE TEMPS WL COOL SLIGHTLY ON MONDAY NIGHT WITH NORTHERLY FLW AND THE LOSS OF SFC HEATING FROM THE HIGH SUN ANGLE. MEANWHILE...FAVORABLE DEEP LAYER MOISTURE AND SEVERAL EMBEDDED VORTS WL ROTATE THRU OUR CWA AND ENHANCE SYNOPTIC LIFT...ALONG WITH FAVORABLE UPSLOPE FLW/BLOCKING WL PROVIDE LVLL MESO-SCALE LIFT ACRS OUR MTNS. THIS LLVL COOLING AND LIFT WL RESULT IN DROPPING SNOW LEVELS WITH SOME ACCUMULATION LIKELY BY 12Z TUES....ESPECIALLY ABOVE 1500FT. THINKING A GENERAL 2 TO 5 INCHES WL BE POSSIBLE ACRS THE MTNS...WITH A MIXTURE OF VERY LIGHT RAIN/SNOW SHOWERS POSSIBLE ACRS THE VALLEYS WITH TOTAL QPF <0.10 THRU 12Z TUES."

Very interesting stuff...I had noticed this morning that the low off of the California coast is also slightly retrograding...it seems as if the flow along the US/Canada border is one of those strange motions...
Then I saw the storm pinwheeling back into Maine, and Quebec and realized the whole flow is retro-ing...

"Over the Northeast, a strong low moving inland over Nova Scotia on Sunday will slowly back into Quebec and bring light snow down to northern New England. Rain will be the dominate precipitation type farther south, but some snow could mix in along the higher elevations of the northern Appalachians.

A cold front over the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley will sweep to the Atlantic Coast on Sunday.

This boundary, and a second cold front dropping south from Canada Sunday and Monday, will also bring reinforcing shots of cooler, drier air across much of the Northern Plains, Midwest, and northeastern U.S.."
