    While New Englanders revert to the winter coat, hat and gloves, winter sports enthusiasts will revel in the new 3-5 feet of snow that’s fallen in Northern New England over the past week to 10 days, bringing some of the best conditions for skiing, boarding and snowmobiling, save for some possible lift holds due to gusty wind this weekend.

    Saturday morning brings a quick-moving disturbance that will enhance the chilly air and also will deliver some scattered snow squalls late morning or midday to Southern New England.

    Cold dry weather is expected to round out the Sunday Parades, temperatures start out in the single numbers and teens, warming to near freezing tomorrow.

    Next week starts fairly quiet and chilly, but a larger storm approaches by late Tuesday or Tuesday night. This storm will be yet another one that reorganizes off the Eastern Seaboard, meaning the potential exists for yet another nor’easter.

    It’s still early and there’s plenty of time to work out the details, but our exclusive, in-house guidance continues to show greater than 50-percent chance the storm impacts New England Tuesday night through Wednesday, with some plowable snow possible, particularly in Southern New England.

    Suffice to say, we’ll be keeping a close eye on this one…though behind it, the weather should quiet for at least the start of next weekend, when temperatures may reach the 40s, but the next system is likely on our doorstep.
