The Roller Coaster Weather Continues with Mild Temps Today – Snow on Wednesday!

Here we go on the roller coaster again. Mild Today with only a VERY slight chance of a shower or two tonight and Tuesday. Then colder on Wednesday with a 30% shot at Snow Showers – some are saying a better chance with 1-3” of accumulation. Then the roller coaster heads uphill again with milder temps on Thursday – High of 48° and even milder on Friday.

Expect highs today neat 50° and overnight lows in the upper 30s to near 40°. Snowmaking should resume Tuesday night as temps are expected to get down to 24°. Wednesday should be cold and snowy. Look for a high Wednesday of 35° or so and a low Wednesday Night near 22°.
