Monday/Tuesday's storm has the potential to bring 8 to 16 inches of snow to the area. This will bring our seasonal snowfall up to at least the average level for the past decade. This storm also has the potential to rank as one of Kingston's largest snowfalls of the past decade. The storm needs to break 9.5 inches to enter Kingston's top ten snowfalls since 2004.

Looking at the long range forecast models, it appears that we may be entering the most active period of the winter. Over the next two weeks there is the possibility that we will see a chance of at least light accumulating snow roughly every 3 to 5 days. This pattern is supported by looking at the chart of the past ten winter seasons, in which seven of the ten seasons show a notable increase in snowfall beginning in late January/early February.

But lets not worry about what may or may not come two weeks down the line. Best to get outside and enjoy the big snows in the moment… ya know? This weeks snow should be fairly powdery, so here's an activity index of what the snow could be good for:
