A Window of Overnight Cold Temps Ahead, then A bit Mild Again

Here’s the immediate forecast for the region using Snowshoe for the northern tier and Banner Elk for the southern tier of ski areas. Bear in mind that you’ll have to tweak things a degree or two if you’re looking at locations "in between".

Banner Elk / Beech Mountain Forecast:

Thursday: Hi 58° Lo 46° – Cloudy, drizzly

Friday: Hi 47° Lo 22° – Rain to Flurries (snowmaking ops)

Saturday: Hi 43° Lo 24° – Sunny (snowmaking ops at night)

Sunday: Hi 50° Lo 29° – Sunny (borderline snowmaking at night)

Monday and Tuesday look too mild to make snow and there’s some showers in that forecast. Things look to be turning colder Wednesday night (December 1st) and then Thursday and Friday of next week are looking like lows in the mid to upper 20s.
