After near record breaking temperatures over the weekend we will see somewhat cooler temps for the first part of the week. Expect mostly sunny skies Monday and Tuesday with highs around 60°. Overnight lows won’t allow for ski resort snowmaking as Monday night will get to about 34°. Tuesday night look for a low of 40°. Wednesday and Thursday looks a bit wet with light rain and highs in the mid 50s and lows in the mid 30s Wednesday night and mid 40s Thursday night.
The BIG change is coming Friday as highs should be in the upper 30s and lows in the upper 20s (look for the snowguns to crankup.) We might even see some light natural snow in the Friday PM hours. Saturday looks like a nice day with sunny skies and highs in the mid 40s and lows in the upper 20s. Again that’s good for snowmaking!
Editor’s note: The mountain forecast for all high elevations in North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia and western Maryland looks AMAZINGLY similar. Therefore we have summarized this forecast for easy reading. Check back daily for updates as we get closer to colder air that should invade the region by late in the week.
