Please don't panic. Life will go on. But this Saturday it is going to rain. Vermont will get the worst of it. As is usually the case with these inside runner storms, the frozen precipitation will hold on the longest over the White Mountains of New Hampshire and into Maine. They made actually see a net positive gain in snow depths (base builder event) especially at places like Wildcat, Sunday River, and Sugarloaf that sit on the north side of the White Mountains. The high terrain can act as a protective barrier keeping the cold air locked in place for longer. It won't stay snow there, but it will contribute positively to the water load in the existing snow pack rather than melting it.

The good news is that this may not ruin the whole Christmas week. For those of you with travel plans on Christmas day, please keep an eye on the forecast. Right it looks like a storm is brewing which will refreshen our snowpack bringing widespread snowfall to the higher terrain.

So after a rain and then a snow storm, what is the net-net gain? The White Mountains look to come out nicely. It should be a great Christmas week for skiing in New Hampshire.
