Watching The Storm With Student Steven
This Short Range ensemble forecast represents a variety of scenarios for the 850 mb 0C isotherm on Friday at 6 pm, when above freezing air is making its most northward advance. Forecast models use algorithms and an input of surface data to predict atmospheric conditions in the future. Each model may use a different algorithm, resulting in the variety of setups that is represented by each line. As a rule of thumb, if your location is north of the 0C isotherm at this timeframe, you can expect an all snow event. Based on the concentration of lines, the northward most extent of liquid precipitation appears to cut through central New York into southern Vermont off to Coastal Maine. These areas could see a brief mixover, but mostly snow. It is once you get down toward southern New England where it looks to be bad news.
