A high pressure system has begun to track across the southeastern United States. As a result, ski areas across the region should see blue skies and plenty of sun today. The only exception being the resorts in West Virginia. Westerly flow around the high will create cloudy conditions with the possibility of a flurry or two in the morning. It will be nothing like the past few days though. Conditions across the entire region will be superb and the start of MLK weekend looks great!
