Finally? A Big Storm for Rochester & Northeast

The Beatles have a song off of the Let It Be album and it’s called “I’ve Got A Feeling”. Great song and also how I feel about the storm forecast to bomb out in Eastern NY Friday. Since last Thursday, the GFS has been the most consistent model with respect to this feature. What really has me convinced at this point is not so much the surface but the 500mb low diving South from from Southern Canada. This upper low is really what will help ignite this storm and cause it to stall for a 24 hour period Friday morning through early Saturday.
I don’t really want to try to forecast snow amounts 4-5 days out, simply too difficult but I will say we have the potential to get 1-2 feet of snow in the region if everything plays out like I suspect it will. Strong winds could create near zero visibility on Friday as winds may gust over 35 mph at times. Looks like we may just get the “big one” after all. We’ll see….
