Default Winter '09-'10 is underway

The season's first snow is possible in the higher elevations of the Lakes Region tonight. Showers are expected to develop this afternoon and linger through the evening, especially at elevation. As the air cools they will change to snow at elevations of 1500 feet or higher. Mountains such as Whiteface or Passaconaway, which are near Sandwich, may have an inch accumulation. Elsewhere, no accumulation is expected.

An early season cold air mass is making its way through the western US where it is creating the first major snowstorm of the season in the mountains of Utah and western Wyoming. As the cold air plows the warmer air of the plains out of the way, expect to see reports of damaging severe weather there -- possibly a tornado outbreak. The cold air will then take over those areas too.

The system will move to the northeast this weekend but will bring us a soggy couple days of chilly rain.

Expect an unsettled pattern in the meantime, with each day having a mix of sun and showers. Any showers lingering at night may turn to snow at the higher elevations.

"they" claim it supposed to be another nasty winter with a good amount of snow. Who "they" is will vary from person to person. I still need to paint a water stain from a leak last winter. Yeah I know I'm right on the ball.

BG- that is only so they can say they opened first (then close like most ski areas do until the conditions can actually support snow)

Actually,they only did a "blow out the mice" operation.Less than an hour on 2 guns.They made no attempt to make snow to ski on.

I agree on 95% of your post. The only part I disagree with is the part I bolded about a chilly rain. It certainly won't be a warm rain, but temps should be in the 60's for the most part. But rain is rain, and rain we are gonna get!

We've had 0.37" today at Black Cat, and 50 degrees is as high as we've been all day. The warm front remains to our south. When I saw the forecast situation on the map I was torn between going for the 60-degree rain or the upper-40s rain ("hypothermia weather"). Going by normal October climatology I would've gone with the warmer solution but I've been watching abnormal cold features on the maps since July. So I chose to look at the warm front the same way I would look at it in winter and gambled on "it's not going to pass quickly."

Yup, you called it right, and I was way wrong. That warm front just never got north of us until Saturday night. I noticed the temp at my house go up about 4 degrees in the early evening.

Did you take that first photo RG? That looks like it was taken from Bode Millers farm (the old Sel Hannah farm).

Yes I did take both pictures. We took a road trip from the lake up to Sugar Hill on October 2nd. I have no idea of the farm name, but here is where we were. Talk about spectacular views!

Sugar Hill has the most spectacular views in the state imo.My sister has a house just past the Sugar Hill Sampler which a friend and her family have owned for generations.Beautifull photos of that incredible landscape.

Question What is forecast for this weekend

OK, here in Spencer MA, we have a great dusting of snow this morning, am heading up for the weekend to the lake. Wondering what the forecast is for the lakes region, I do not get a great feel for it from the Boston Weather.

Cannot wait to see the snow on the mountains and what is left of the color on the trees. Plus of course the lake.

Check out the new Screen Capture Utility thread

I was quite shocked to see snow on the ground this morning.

We are heading to the lake tomorrow morning and it looks like there is a chance to catch some snow showers there too. We've never been there for that.

This winter is coming way too fast for me! Winter itself isn't the big problem for me, it is the ice storms that leave their mess and make life dangerous for this accident prone gal.
