Instant snowpack

Post by Bamboo&Brookies »

Between 7 to 15 inches forecast for Catskills (and Northeast) starting Mon. night through Wed.

Should provide a little more runoff help for the watershed going into spring.

We'll see... I don't like counting chickens before they hatch... and as for weather forecasters not sure they always know what will happen in a couple hours from now, let alone days... hope you're right Rob...

The weather forecasters here are saying the same, 8-12 inches in the Philadelphia area.

We had some pretty heavy squalls yesterday, and the non paved areas are all covered with around 2 inches.

I hope it shows as predicted, a nice thick layer of snow in the mountains would be great! CJ

They are calling for the potential of 18-24 here in central Ct.. I agree they get all excited and what we get we get. Fortunately I spent Wednesday morning changing the pulley springs and belts on my snowblower, maybe I just had a feeling. I will say this 24" of snow only equates to 2" of rain. At this stage of the middle of March I would prefer 3" of rain.

My neighbor upstate called me today, she told me my 3ft high propane tank cover is level with the snow around it.

Looks like we got a decent snow event up there finally. I moved just 5 inches off my driveway here.

Looking forward to the opener, hope to see you guys up there on the 1st! CJ

According to the lower map here, Slide Mountain and a lot of the western Catskills got 30-36". The
eastern Catskills got 24-30" -- not bad!

That's all very good news....
Rick - I lived up in Shohola for 20 years.... we would get 8-10 inches more snow than in Milford.....snow would be up under the hemlock and larch trees until may sometimes!
