125 Inches for March and Counting

Northstar picked up another 6 inches yesterday which brought the 4 day total to 19 inches as of this morning.  It also brought the total for March to 125 inches!

No changes on the forecast for the weekend.  After a break on Friday the snow will return Saturday as a strong cold front moves through.  Still looks like 4-8 inches possible at the base and 8-12 inches up top through Saturday night.

It looks like the snow showers could last into Sunday now with a few more inches possible. The models are trying to figure out next week. After a break to start the week it looks like we will see another system Wednesday with light snowfall. The question is what happens after that?

The European model brings in a strong system Thursday and then a has a cut-off low spinning down the coast through the weekend of the 7th. That would bring light snow through the period with several more inches possible. The GFS keeps the Thursday system to our North and then keeps the cut-off low off the coast with it not coming inland until possibly the following week.

It was looking like the ridge would build in for quiet weather beyond the middle of next week but the Euro is putting that in question. We will have to watch over the weekend. BA
