NORTH CAROLINA MOUNTAINS

NO SNOWMAKING TEMPS on tap for a few days…but NICE WEATHER. After a mostly cloudy Wednesday, expect Sunny Skies for Thanksgiving Day and all the way through Monday. Highs will be near 50° on Wednesday and in the mid to upper 50s on Thanksgiving Day. Friday, Saturday and Sunday will be in the low 60s and things will cool off a bit into the upper 50s on Monday and Tuesday of next week. Lows will flirt with snowmaking temps Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights…but only around 32° each night. Sunday and Monday will be in the mid to upper 30s for lows.

The next wave of colder air will stay away until around December 1st. The ski resorts will have to pretty much make do with what they have now. The resorts that haven’t made any snow as yet, probably won’t get to make any snow until December 1st. THINK COLD and SNOW!
