Storm Update #2: Cold Shifts North

The first wave of this storm is ongoing in the Northeast with snow overperforming the models, but there is next to no accumulations because the ground is too warm and the air temps at the surface are above freezing everywhere south of the border. If there was snowpack on the mountains however it would be accumulating. One more reason why snowmaking is helpful as it does in fact help preserve early season natural snow.

This storm coverage is more of a test run as it's not going to be actionable except for those who want to make some first turns on the white stuff. We're talking fast grass at elevation with a smattering of sharp rocks so know where the grass is!
