Skier’s Forecast for the North Carolina Mountains for February 26, 2006


Enjoy the conditions at the ski areas for the next few days as sunny skies and mild temps will dominate the weather pattern for a while.  Sunday will be beautiful AND cold with highs near 30°. It was very cold last night as Beech dropped to 11° and most dipped into the teens.

Sunday night will be a cold one as well with temps dropping into the teens again and if the forecasters are correct, that MAY be the last snowmaking temps that we will see in the North Carolina Mountains until about March 5th and we’ll see a mild up.

Monday will be windy, but otherwise mild and that trend looks to be sticky with us for several days.

Last year at this time we entered into a very busy week as far as snow was concerned – as we had snow for most of the week.  That won’t happen this go around.
