One More Mild Day Before Winter Returns

FeaturedFirst TraxNews

We are just a day away from another pattern flip.

It has been a back-and-forth start to 2023 as we flip back from winter-like to spring-like conditions. Fortunately, the switch is going to flip back to winterish after today.

Today is going to be another mildish day as we will see some rain move through early, but the whole day shouldn’t be a complete washout.

After the rain moves through, we will see temperatures starting to cool, and could potentially see some very light natural snow in the northern part of the region.

It will be a good start to the weekend as snowmakers should get an opportunity to work their magic for a quick refresh.

Brad will be sharing his latest skier’s forecast over the next day or so as next week has the potential to be interesting as long as the ingredients all come together.

Despite some rain and the milder temps of the past couple of days, the slopes are looking fun and playful this morning
