Could it Happen?

Low pressure systems moving up the coast pulling that maritime air off the water. The jet stream meandering south of us allowing that cold, dry, continental air in from the north. Collisions of the masses bringing the warmer, humid, air upward. Adiabatic cooling putting the mountain ridges real close to that magical sub freezing dew point. Could we get snow while the fall colors are peaking?? It could be a first and maybe even a last. I will be watching closely.

It would be beautiful. Learned a new word Adiabatic.

but, like up north, it could lead to a lot of trees going down for the count. leaves give more area for more weight to crack things down...

No inversions, please! Got the ski sticks ready! Classic Nor'easter!

It's not gonna happen.

Guess I'll carve a pumpkin, drink a delicious beverage, lube my chain, and wait for the 60's to return next week...

It will be a good day to break out the rain gear and topo and go find a place.
