More SNOW on the WAY!!!??? –

Forecast Update:

Winter ain’t over just yet! The active March pattern continues for another 7-15 days!

Snow is flying today on the back of gusty northwest winds behind the power house front that caused severe weather this morning. The winds at times could gust to 60 mph today and tonight. The cold air is really being pumped into the southeast and that cold air advection won’t relax until tomorrow, just for a brief time.

The snow today will go through the night but totals will be hard to measure because it will be blowing all over the place. If we could measure it would pile up to around 2-4” by tomorrow. There will be a brief break in the snow Wednesday and then another piece of energy comes down into the newly formed East coast trough which will help keep some snow showers in the forecast Wednesday night and into Thursday morning. The will help to re-enforce the cold air over the region.

Then Friday into the weekend we get a chance at another big east coast storm which could bring some significant snow to the mountains of the Southeast. The set up is there for some big snow throughout the weekend. The amounts aren’t going to be as much as last week but pretty good especially up in the Virginias. The cold air sticks around right into next week. So if the resorts make snow and add to the natural stuff this week they could stay open until April.

As things come together this week we will update you right here as we head into a great March ski week ahead.

Good skiing and stay tuned!
