The coming Nor'easter could bring some surprise snow to the high mountains of the Northeast. Before you say it's never happened, It was just a year ago this week that we had record early heavy snow here in Central PA at 1,000 feet.
While that's not likely at this elevation Friday night, it could hit the highest slopes, or so our news article "Powerhouse Nor'easter Coming to New York City, Philadelphia, Boston" says: "The Smoky Mountains in eastern Tennessee and western North Carolina and the ridges in West Virginia are the most likely candidates Thursday night into Friday." Here's a pressure map for Friday night per the GFS computer forecast model:
Interestingly enough, neither the GFS nor the ECMWF have the resolution to detect said snowfall, which should probably give forecasters pause. The DGEX model (cousin to the GFS) keeps the entire storm off the coast; the ECWMF solution looks similar to the map above.
