Thursday and much of the weekend - High pressure will bring brilliant
sunshine and spring like skiing to much of the Northeast U.S. through most
of Sunday before a warm surge of air moves in from a developing southerly
flow late Sunday into Monday next week.

Colder air will wrap around this exiting storm system for the middle part of
next week introducing more light snows to mountainous areas New York and New
England with generally from a trace to 5" and nothing major was foreseen
through the end of January at this point.

A LONGER RANGE LOOK TO FEBRUARY

FOR ANALOG YEARS AND WEATHER PATTERN COMPARISONS TO FORECAST FEBRUARY
SNOWFALL IN  NEW ENGLAND

STOWE/CANNON MOUNTAIN/KILLINGTON AND OTHERS--

The year 1969 seems to fit very well in some ways. December and January,
1968

snowfall was below normal across much of New England with January

being the worst. February, 1969 features big snowfall from Maine to New

Hampshire and parts of Vermont with the most over southern and eastern

New England. Mt Washington, for example, had the most February snowfall

ever in 1969 with over 170 inches, while about 45" fell at Stowe and 74"

at Killington.
