    Rich, looking at the charts, I would say mostly cloudy, brief sunny intervals, passing showers that will fall as snow even at valley elevation, except sleety mix possible around mid-day heating max in lower elevations, but showers won't be too prolonged in valleys, could see 5-10 cms snow on higher slopes though, and highs both days 7-9 C, morning lows 2-4 C. This would be for Canmore, for Edmonton less cloud and shower activity and a somewhat lower temperature trend. We're getting rain here this morning.

    Anyway as you know the weather can be very changeable in the mountain valleys from place to place, with all the different upslope and downslope processes going on. But the air mass looks to be partly cloudy, unstable and rather chilly compared to recent weeks although near normal for time of year.

    Roger you are pretty much spot on. Woke up this morning to the first covering of the season, only about 1 cm here in the Valley but higher up it was closer to 5cm. Nice and sunny now with the remaining snow slowly melting in the sun

    Looks like another sunny and relatively mild week ahead..no snow in the forecast up to and including the end of October..which i think is rather unusual.

    Quite an extensive area of snow now in Pennsylvania. Giving the forecasters a bit of a headache I should imagine as looking at the temps it must be borderline snow or rain.

    Major snow warning has been issued.

    URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE

    NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAY ME

    524 AM EDT SAT OCT 29 2011

    ...POTENTIALLY DAMAGING AND HISTORIC OCTOBER SNOWSTORM LIKELY FOR

    TONIGHT INTO SUNDAY...

    .LOW PRESSURE WILL RAPIDLY INTENSIFY AS IT MOVES UP THE MID

    ATLANTIC COAST TODAY. THE LOW WILL PASS BY CAPE COD TONIGHT WHILE

    STRENGTHENING RAPIDLY AND MOVING NORTHEAST.

    PRECIPITATION SHOULD QUICKLY OVERSPREAD THE REGION FROM SOUTH TO

    NORTH STARTING IN THE AFTERNOON HOURS ACROSS SOUTHERN NH AND

    SOUTHERNMOST MAINE. THE LEADING EDGE OF THE SNOW SHIELD WILL

    QUICKLY ADVANCE NORTHWARD DURING THE EVENING HOURS. TEMPERATURES

    NEAR THE GROUND ON THE COASTAL PLAIN WILL PROBABLY BE WARM ENOUGH

    FOR THE PRECIPITATION TO START AS RAIN OR A RAIN SNOW MIX...BUT

    ONCE HEAVIER PRECIPITATION STARTS FALLING...ANY RAIN SHOULD FLIP

    OVER TO HEAVY WET SNOW. THE CHANGE TO SNOW WILL PROBABLY BE

    DELAYED A BIT LONGER ALONG THE IMMEDIATE COAST GIVEN THE

    RELATIVELY WARM WATER TEMPERATURES THIS TIME OF YEAR.

    THE EXPECTED HEAVY AND WET NATURE OF THE SNOW WILL STICK TO TREES

    AND LIKELY CAUSE BRANCHES TO BREAK...ESPECIALLY ON TREES THAT

    STILL HAVE LEAVES. EVEN JUST A FEW INCHES OF WET SNOW CAN CAUSE

    SMALLER BRANCHES TO START BREAKING. EVENTUALLY...WITH ENOUGH SNOW

    AND SOME WIND...ENTIRE TREES COULD SNAP. THIS WILL CREATE A

    SITUATION WHERE THE POTENTIAL EXISTS FOR WIDESPREAD POWER

    OUTAGES. RESIDENTS SHOULD PREPARE THEMSELVES FOR THE POSSIBILITY

    OF EXTENDED POWER OUTAGES. ROADS WILL ALSO BECOME SNOW COVERED

    AND TREACHEROUS.

    THE STORM WILL MOVE OUT SUNDAY MORNING...BUT IT WILL REMAIN COLD

    AND WINDY IN THE WAKE OF THE SYSTEM.

    Cams 4 and 7 are probably best.

    October temperature record is about to go, 32F at 1pm, the record is 31F.

    Another 6-8 hours of snow expected.

    This is epic, i am so living there for a year.

    West Virginia at 10 inches.

    Highest totals however are expected in New York and New Jersey.

    Bloomin New York!

    Here i was earlier today thinking that i may begin to get snow withdrawals if we do not get any in November, to find that a record event is already in progress over NYC.

    Such a great place for big snow events as well because they are really well documented.

    Just hoping for some more pics.

    This is crazy even for New Yorkers. crazy weather in the US in recent days with snow even in the Texas panhandle.

    It's actually part of the same jet streak, its just that when you get near NYC you get moisture and a huge thermal gradiant thrown into the mix.

    Parts of New Jersey are already without power.

    If anybody came came because they clicked the link in the seasonal section, can they just let me know as it may be a good idea to do it more often when massive snow events occur.

    For perspective, New York has warmer October's then we do. No fair!

    (at least we're getting our snow fix though eh)

    Yes, its great. Just like hearing from the people in the Midlands last December.

    Even if its not snowing here, it's still a bit exiting to be able to monitor a big event elsewhere.

    Yup it's pretty exciting

    Parts of Maryland have 7 inches so yes this is going to be record breaking for the NE USA.

    Thanks for posting link to cams, nice early start to winter for those in the NE US. Some spots expecting around 12 inches of snow, which is very impressive.

    Also some pics here: http://www.accuweath...snowstorm-i.asp

    Recent Accuweather prediction. Anybody in the 6 inch and above area stands a good chance of breaking local records.
