February is here and it looks like we will begin with some snow! This year the new way we know when the storm is forecasted to be big is when the Weather Channel gives it a name. The storm forecasted for Friday/Saturday is named Nemo…..
So what are we seeing at Okemo? As you can imagine, I look at many different weather web sites and Okemo contracts with a weather reporting service. It looks like all forecasts are pointing towards lots of snow. I think it is going to be a good old fashion Vermont winter snowstorm. Nothing way out of the ordinary, but more than a few inches. My take on “Nemo” is that it is going to be slower than what they are saying and be prolonged into Saturday. I don’t believe there will be as much snow during the day Friday as they are forecasting with the bulk coming Friday afternoon and evening.
Spread the word. Snow is on the way. My prediction is 10 – 16 inches of fresh powder by Saturday afternoon.
