Today will be very pleasant before another low pressure system moves into the region later tonight. This is not expected to be a significant accumulation event for the region, as the Northeast will take on the brunt of the storm. Nonetheless, several resorts can expect an inch or two out of this system, with the West Virginia ski areas seeing more. Temperatures behind the cold front will be very cold, but nothing like what we have already seen this year. As quickly as the storm enters the region, it will exit just as fast. The system will be out of the region by later Friday. Saturday and Sunday look like perfect days to get out on the snow, with sunny skies and temperatures in the low 20’s. Don’t forget about the SkiNC Summit at Beech Mountain on Saturday! For more information, go to the event webpage.
