The Weather story for the past few days has been the unusual difference in temps and weather patterns within the Southeast alone. Typically even though temps may vary from Maryland to West Virginia to Virginia and into Western North Carolina – the higher elevations of NC are usually about the same temps as you’ll find at McHenry, Maryland – home to Wisp Resort at Deep Creek. While temperatures would normally vary a few degrees colder into
While the High Country of Western North Carolina with it’s 5000+ feet elevations (led by Ski Beech with 5,506’) will be experiencing 50s and 60° readings and mostly sunny skies from today through Saturday…places northward will be seeing a variety of wintry precipitation and considerably colder temps.
Check out the details as we highlight some of the areas today:
WISP RESORT – we see a HIGH today of around 32° with a 30% chance of snow (around one inch). Tonight some freezing rain may take over where the snow leaves off. Wednesday holds an additional shot (30%) of freezing rain and highs will warm to 47° (compared to 63° for a high tomorrow in the

When you get down into
We’ll see sunny skies for the next several days until sometime on Sunday when things will cloud up a bit, signaling a change back to more normal late Winter weather. The high today will be 55° or so and the low tonight will only drop to about 41°. Wednesday will be even warmer with 63° for the high and 44° for the low. Thursday will be about the same and then Friday may get back to somewhat more normal highs close to 50° and a low that MIGHT allow for some snowmaking, although we’re saying that it will stay just above freezing.
Saturday should be nice for skiers this weekend, with a high around 50° and a low near 32°. Sunday brings back some cold air and just so that you won’t think that Winter is over, we may see some highs in the 30s and lows in the 20s on Monday with snow in the forecast. That’s a little too far out so we’ll hold that for another day or two.
We DO have some slight chances of rain (in the 20-30% chance variety) on Tuesday night, Wednesday, Wednesday night and on Thursday.
Until Next Time!
