Storm Update
The Ridge is not in the bulls-eye of the coming storm but looks to grab some accumulation in the range of 6” to 8” between tonight and Friday.  The first signs of snow should appear tonight, peak on Wednesday and end Wednesday night.  Look for temps to drop tonight into the 20’s and highs below the freeze mark from Wednesday thru Friday.  Once the main system clears Wednesday night, northwest flow will kick into high gear so look for periods of snow flakes and possibly lake effect snow showers here and there more so on Thanksgiving but also on Friday.  Of course, should the nor’easter steer more west snow totals would climb significantly; however, confidence is growing that the storm hugs the coast and The Ridge just gets in the western door of the storm.
Happy Thanksgiving to all and see you on The Ridge,
