I just got back from the weekend at the Loaf, and I have to say I was impressed.
As we've discussed in previous blogs, it's been a weird winter. There haven't been any true Nor'easters that thump down snow and we are halfway through February. Yet, the Loaf has slowly accumulated enough snow to keep the glades healthy and the groomers smooth.
I wish I could tell you "The Big One" was coming for vacation week, but that's just not in the cards. However, we will get a nice refresh on Tuesday to set us up for the rest of the break.
The setup for the snow will be basically the same one we've had all season: Warm front thump with a cold front crashing behind it.
Light snow begins on Tuesday afternoon:
Snow ramps up a bit overnight and continues until very early in the morning on Wednesday.
Most of it is overnight however, and by Wednesday the system should be wrapping up. (There might be a few sleet pellets in there late, but I don't anticipate it's much of an issue).
So again, it ain't gonna knock your socks off but it will freshen things up nicely:
After that temperatures aren't very cold for Wednesday which is promising. I admit we will have to keep an eye on wind gusts though as the cold front drags through.
Thursday and Friday get off to cold starts but are very manageable by the afternoon with sunshine especially on Friday.
