Who is Tim Kelley?
A native Cape Codder, Tim says "Dad taught me how to read Barometer, Mom taught me how to smile."
He learned to ski at Blue Hill near Boston 4 decades ago. But it was Burke Mountain Vermont where is was exposed to big mountain skiing while earning his B.S. in Meteorology at Lyndon State College, class of '87.
Tim has started his weather career at WMUR Manchester NH, then went to WLNE in Providence RI, before settling at his current TV gig, New England Cable News (NECN) in 1992. You can also see his surf and ski reports on SkiTheEast.net, Boardliving.com, and SurfSkiWeather.us.
He says "It's an honor to be part of The Jay Team, look for me in TIMbuktu!"
Several feet of pre-Thanksgiving snowfall last season is tough to beat, but we are having a white one again in 2014. Our Wednesday Travel day Nor'easter hits hardest on Highways to our south, but what we have going for us is elevation and drier snow, just what we need after the soggy Monday. Snow guns are coming back on for the foreseeable future, at least though Saturday anyway. Snow is expected to fall from the clouds beginning about 2pm Wednesday through sunrise Thanksgiving morning. Let's call it 1/4 to 1/2 inch per hour, times 18 hours, that's about 6.75 inches of Powder for Turkey Day turns. After that we have intermittent 'Jay Cloud' snow right through the weekend. That likely adds up to more than an additional 6.75". Yes, that's right, we are forecasting 12"+ of snow through this weekend. What a way to burn off all those stuffing and apple pie calories.
It's great to be back, Happy Thanksgiving! Tim
