Monday should offer 1-2” of additional snow with highs near 25°. Around the clock snowmaking temps! Tuesday and Wednesday should be partly cloudy with highs in the 30s and lows in the 21° range. It should be a nice turkey day with sunny skies and highs in the low to mid 40s. (Great opening day weather!)

The forecast for the North Carolina Mountains:

After a cloudy Sunday morning and highs near 40°, expect SNOW SHOWERS to develop!
