A few milder than normal days – Frigid this Weekend!

It felt like a Spring morning as I headed out for work this morning; a far cry from the frigid cold and snowy days of the last couple of weeks.  Actually yesterday was a mild one as well.  After a short bout of Spring like morning showers/drizzle we should see a break in the clouds and maybe some good sunshine for most of the day.

We will be slightly milder than normal today though Saturday with mostly sunny skies through the period.  We may get a few drizzles this evening or even some light freezing rain overnight, but for the most part expect sunny skies through Saturday with highs in the mid 40s daily and overnight lows in the 20s.

Snowmaking should resume THURSDAY night and resorts will be able to make snow each night over the long term forecasting period (except for tonight).  More frigid air is expected to migrate into the area on Saturday night into Sunday and the first of next week. Highs Monday and Tuesday will be in the TEENS and 20s and lows will dive to the single digits.  No natural snow to speak of is in the forecast other than a few night time flurries Saturday, Sunday and into Monday.

The record in weather history for this date are:

The record high was 68° set back in 1980.
The record low was MINUS 7° in 1963.
We received 6” of snow on this date back in 1978.

Have a great day….

Until Next Time!
