Most areas around the High Country received some snow. Boone has seen a half inch or so, Blowing Rock a dusting and other portions of the High Country simply have seen some nice flurries and snow showers but no accumulation. However, Banner Elk, Sugar, Hawksnest and Beech Mountain HAVE seen some more significant snowfall.
Beech Mountain and Sugar both picked up about 2” of natural snow while Banner Elk saw about 1”. Areas such as Wolf Laurel and Cataloochee picked up about 1” as well.
The forecast calls for maybe a bit more snow Monday afternoon although the sun is popping out across the region. Snowmaking temps are on tap for today, tonight and then the high on Tuesday should be around 40° or so. Lows Tuesday night should be near 28°. Tuesday should be partly cloudy.
Wednesday through Sunday looks variably to partly cloudy and highs from 50-55° and lows near freezing each night. Snowmaking temps will be borderline. We also have a 30% chance of some light rain ON Thanksgiving Day and again Saturday. We’ll keep you informed.
