Snow In Poland, Snow Forecast For New England. Winter's Coming!

Snow in the Czech Republic this week.
A few high elevation places in New England might
look a little like this by Sunday.  
We here in New England are now watching a series of cold fronts cross our area. It'll get a little colder behind each one.

One particularly strong cold front is due to come through later Friday into Saturday, and that should bring the first accumulating snow of the season to New York's Adirondacks, Vermont's Green Mountains and New Hampshire's White Mountains.

Parts of Maine are going to turn white over the weekend, too.

Several inches of snow will probably pile up in the highest elevations, making skiers salivate.

I suspect elevations as low as 1,000 feet will get at least a slushy coating in some areas. Lower valleys might escape with light flurries.

Meanwhile, early season snows are hitting elsewhere, like in central Europe. Leaves are still on the trees in Poland, the Czech Republic and Germany as parts of those countries got a good half foot of snow.

With the snow piling up on leafy trees, branches snapped, cutting power to at least 9,000 Polish home and businesses. 

I don't think things will get that bad in northern New England, but I imagine there could be a few scattered power failures as snow falls on some of the trees that have leaves in higher elevations over the weekend.

Plus, as I noted before, the snow and the foliage will make for some pretty photography on Sunday.
