The Environment Canada forecast is pretty clear which way it’s going. They think we’re going to get a fair amount of snow tomorrow and maybe even some into tomorrow night when the moisture is really supposed to fall.

Here’s the GFS model. It has us at a pretty steady temperature, but not below freezing from morning until 4PM:

And here’s the same time period for precip:

So I dunno folks, I don’t really think it’s cold enough out there for snow right now, and it sure doesn’t seem like it’s supposed to get any colder. We’re only 1 degree away from sure snow, but 1 degree can be a lot these days.

One thing is for sure though, we have quite a bit of weather coming at us for tomorrow night. If it’s not snow, it’s going to be a lot of rain.

Definitely going to be a great day and night for Mt. Washington though!
