Today will be a little on the cloudy side with a chance of light snow early and the underdeveloped snow later in the day today and Thursday. Highs both days will be in the upper 30s to 40°. Overnight lows may drop low enough to make snow. Friday through Monday looks like snow showers, although no significant accumulation is expected at this time. Highs Friday and Saturday are expected to be in the low 30s and overnight lows will be in the teens on Friday night and single digits Saturday and Sunday Night. Monday and Tuesday look VERY cold as well.
SNOWSHOE WEST VIRGINIA:
Snowshoe has ALREADY picked up 2” of snow overnight and should see a bit more today. Highs today will be in the 37° range with lows tonight near 20°. Thursday and Friday should be sunny with highs in the mid 30s and lows in the teens. Saturday is looking like light snow/mix with highs in the mid 30s. Sunday through Tuesday will be frigid under sunny skies and highs in the teens and low 20s and lows in the single digits and BELOW ZERO!
They are getting a bit of snow this morning (around an inch or so) and that may end as a bit of underdeveloped snow later in the day as highs are expected in the upper 30s to 40°. Thursday and Friday should be sunny with highs in the mid to upper 40s and overnight lows in the mid 20s or so. Saturday turns colder with a mixed winter precip. Sunday through Tuesday will be cold with highs in the low 30s and lows in the teens and single digits.
My friends in Gatlinburg are seeing a little light underdeveloped snow this morning. That should move out pretty quick and highs today through Saturday should be in the 40s to near 50°. Thursday through Tuesday should be mostly sunny and overnight lows each night should allow for snowmaking with lows in the teens and 20s through the period.
After a short bout of Spring like morning showers/drizzle we should see a break in the clouds and maybe some good sunshine for most of the day.
We will be slightly milder than normal today though Saturday with mostly sunny skies through the period. We may get a few drizzles this evening or even some light freezing rain overnight, but for the most part expect sunny skies through Saturday with highs in the mid 40s daily and overnight lows in the 20s.
Snowmaking should resume THURSDAY night and resorts will be able to make snow each night over the long term forecasting period (except for tonight). More frigid air is expected to migrate into the area on Saturday night into Sunday and the first of next week. Highs Monday and Tuesday will be in the TEENS and 20s and lows will dive to the single digits. No natural snow to speak of is in the forecast other than a few night time flurries Saturday, Sunday and into Monday.
Have a great day….
Until Next Time!
