Default Winter continues...

Snow squalls will pass through the lakes region today and tonight. These squalls are not showing on radar (yet) but they are currently occurring at the lake. They will limit visibility to under a mile at times and may tally up to an inch. Additionally, winds are picking up, especially in squalls, and are currently sustained at 26 gusting to 34 mph.

This activity is caused by a cold front now passing through. Behind the front, temps are in the teens in southern Ontario and Quebec. Look for a return to normal February temps for the rest of this week.

The lake has now seen 90.4 inches of snow for the season. It has snowed on all but three days this month. Precipitation (of any form) has been recorded on all but one day this month. Concord is now closing in on its wettest February on record. This month currently ranks a very close second and will likely take first place before the month ends in 2 more weeks. Records at Concord go back to 1868.

There is a chance of more snow this Friday night and Saturday. A storm is forecast to form on the NJ coast. At the moment it looks like it will head east and be a NJ-MA snowstorm, with only light snow here. One computer model is predicting it will come up the coast instead. Given the track record of computer-guided forecasts around here this winter, it's not out of the question.

The snowpack still stands at 28 inches, and will now be solidifying in the falling temps, after being moistened by yesterday's rain.

The return of cold weather is reducing our immediate flood threat from snowmelt region-wide and and ice jams on rivers and streams. Continue to monitor the season's progression and it wouldn't be a bad idea to prepare for the flooding that *may* occur when warm/rainy weather starts lasting longer than it has been.

The WeatherCam this morning showed a good deal of sun glare on the lake ice for the first time in weeks, indicating that the lake surface has gone from a slushy state to more of a polished state.
