I don’t know what it is about the Mother’s day period. Maybe Ullr’s mom likes to shuss. IDK. Whatever it is, I strongly think some uppper elevation pows are on the way. Just like last year.
Gonna keep this simple because after this winter, LH needs a break.

Here’s the deal, along the front that’s bringing epic amounts of rain, a wave of low pressure will deepen. As it does and moves N/NE through Maine a broad NW flow will set up behind it. Classic upslope pattern ensues. With sufficent cold air from about 2500 Ft up snow is likely from really tonight through friday am. I check some data and the omega signature isn’t perfect but with the NW winds I don’t really care what the model tells me. I know where that air is going when it hits the Greens and Northern Slopes of the ADK (Lyon mtn). It’s going up. And that’s good.

Totals…oh really does it matter? Its MAY and I’m talking about upslope snow. Go up there and TELL me how much it snowed!!!
Srsly though it could be plenty to have some fun with!

    I hope all is well Lionel. What a winter! We definitely agree that Ullr’s mom likes to schuss. We found a good 4-6″ in the Sug/MRG zone Thursday p.m and Friday a.m… On a wooden bench this morning, we watched that 6″ sit for awhile and then melt back to 4″, then 2″ and then just a slushy film b/w runs. It was bittersweet. Thanks again for sharing all of your weather beta this winter. Here are a few images from Thurs p.m. – http://www.adventureskier.com/2011/05/05/photos-of-the-week-thanks-mom/
