Southeast Ski Areas Looking at Springlike Temps Today until Tuesday or Wednesday

We’ve received a fair amount of feedback from you guys about our morning weather updates.  Seems those of you who are planning trips to the mountains of the Southeast and Mid Atlantic Ski Resorts like that we’ve been providing specific regional forecasts.  We’ll try to get even more detailed by the start of next season.

Here’s the breakdown today:

WISP RESORT IN MARYLAND – Look for mostly sunny skies Saturday, Sunday and Monday but also a 40-70% chance of a thunderstorm each day.  Highs today will be around 63° and drop to only the upper 40s tonight.  Sunday should be a match of today with a 70% chance of a shower or two and highs around 63°. Monday will be warmer still…at about 68° or so and then Tuesday will be wet with a 50% chance of rain and cloudy skies.  Look for cooler temps on Tuesday with highs around 47° and dropping to 27° which may allow for some snowmaking if they decide to do that.  Wednesday through Friday of next week, look for Partly Cloudy skies and highs in the low to mid 40s and lows in the upper 20s each night.

TIMBERLINE AND CANAAN VALLEY RESORTS IN WEST VIRGINIA – Look for a mix of sun, clouds and a 40% chance of a shower or two today with a high near 70°.  Sunday should be even warmer with highs around 73° and with the same sun to possible shower kind of day.  Nothing to mess up a day of skiing…you just may have to duck in once or twice!  Monday will be more of the same.  Tuesday will be cloudy and showery with highs in the mid to upper 40s and a 50% chance of rain.  Wednesday looks sunny and near normal with a high around 47°.

SNOWSHOE MOUNTAIN WEST VIRGINIA – Meteorologist Jamey Singleton in West Virginia is forecasting some areas of WV to get close to 80° over the next couple of days.  AMAZING.  It won’t get that warm at Snowshoe with its 4848’ elevations.  Look for a cloudy day today with highs near 60° or so.  Sunday should be nice for the most part with highs in the upper 60s but don’t rule out a 50% chance of showers and a thunderstorm or two.  Monday more of the same as Sunday.  Tuesday looks like rain showers and a much cooler high of 40°…dropping to 26° overnight which could end the precip as snow.  Wednesday through next Friday should be sunny and near normal with highs around 42° and lows near 22° each day.  That will make for some snowmaking ops.

WINTERGREEN RESORT IN VIRGINIA – There’s a slight 50% chance of rain on Tuesday of next week but other than that look for Partly Cloudy skies from today all the way through next Friday.  Highs today will be near 70° and then 77° on Sunday, near 80° on Monday!  Tuesday should cool to 57° for a high and the Wednesday, Thursday and Friday look for highs around 60° each day.  Overnight lows Tuesday night and Thursday night MIGHT allow for some snowmaking if Wintergreen decided to do it.  It will be borderline.

NC MOUNTAIN – We will be some 14° Milder than normal for lows tonight and about 11° warmer for daytime highs today as temps will rise in the mid 60s today and we even have a 40% chance of thunderstorms today and a slight chance tonight.  Sunday will be even warmer with highs around 67° with a 30% chance of a shower or two.  Monday brings more chances of rain with highs in the 70s and a 40% shot at a thunderstorm.  There’s a 70% chance of rain Monday night.  Tuesday should bring rain early and then a mix of rain and snow Tuesday night as temps drop quickly into the 20s overnight.  Wednesday should be beautiful with sunny skies and a high of 48° which is near the normal high of 53°.

This time last year we had just finished wrapping up a FOOT of snow within the preceding week!  On top of that we saw another one inch of snow on this date last season and then another 2” on Sunday.  So it was definitely a snowy week in 2005 at this point.

The records for this date in weather history were:

The record high was set back in 1990 with a high of 75°
The record low was 4° in 1998!
We saw 4” of snow in this date back in 1978.

Until Next Time!
