Southeast Ski Areas get some Needed Cold and Snow Ahead!

We’re compiling the weather forecast for all Southeast Ski Areas at this one location today…and we’ll go from South to North just to be fair and equiable.

NC MOUNTAINS – Today should start of gorgeous and then expect a 40% chance of thunderstorms and a high of 70°. There’s an 80% chance of thunderstorms tonight.  Tuesday should be MUCH cooler with highs around 45° and BREEZY winds up to 48mph! Tuesday night will see the temps drop to 26° and with windy conditions sticking around through Wednesday and Wednesday night. Wednesday should be mild at around 50° and Wednesday night might dip to freezing temps. Thursday offers a 30% chance of showers and a high near 50°.  Thursday night may be a mix of rain to snow and 27°.  Friday also looks a little “confused” with rain or snow and a high of 44° and a low of 20°.  Saturday and Sunday look pretty chilly with Saturday’s high of around 38° and overnight lows diving down to 15°.  So the resorts that WANT to stick around will have some snowmaking ops.

SNOWSHOE MOUNTAIN in West Virginia – There’s a 40% chance of rain today and 100% tonight with highs today of 62° and lows tonight cold enough to change the rain to snow at 25°.  Tuesday looks snowy with an inch or two of new snow.  Highs Tuesday at Snowshoe should be around 28° and overnight lows may dip to 16°.
