This Weekend Provides Cold Air for Snowmaking, but the Week Ahead???

This weekend will be slightly colder than normal with sunny skies and highs in the 30s today and low 20s tonight (great for snowmaking).  Saturday should top out at about 42° and dip down to 21° tomorrow night.  Sunday should mild up a bit to more normal temps of 48° for a high and 30° for a low.  Monday looks like light snow flurries to a dusting of snow and highs in the upper 30s and lows around 28°.

After that – things are looking pretty mild for a stretch. Tuesday’s highs will reach into the mid to upper 40s, Wednesday into the upper 40s, Thursday will top out at about 56° and Friday and NEXT Saturday and Sunday look to be making it to near 60°. Overnight lows will only be in the 40s.  That will definitely make for Spring Skiing Conditions in Western North Carolina .

Last year during this week ahead, we saw 7” of snow and traditionally it’s a pretty snow period as we’ve had some of our biggest snows of the season during the upcoming week in weather history.  March 8th of 1971 we saw more than 11” of snow fall and each day ahead for the next week as we look back in weather history – this week has brought us numerous snows of more than 6”.  Not so for this week ahead.  Could this spell the closing of more resorts?  Check back and we’ll keep you posted.

Until Next Time!
