Northwest Flow snow continues on Saturday mostly in West Virginia and the Wisp Resort area. We’re seeing some snow in the Western North Carolina mountain on Saturday as well as what Brad Panovich calls a little quick, hitting clipper system leaves a little more snow in the region.
The highs this weekend look to be in the teens and 20s across the region and cold and snow is in the forecast throughout the long term forecast period through Tuesday and cold temps and some sun is in the forecast heading into the end of next week.
Brad’s thinking that more moderate snow will begin to hit the central Appalachian mountains into North Carolina and Virginia on Sunday afternoon. The northwest flow snows will continue most all weekend and then the heavier snow should kick in sometime on Sunday by mid day and then the West Virginia ski areas get it early on Monday.
That is GREAT news for President’s Day and Valentine’s Day skiers and snowboarders. Brad’s suggesting googles NOT for the ski area snowmaking but for the natural snows. (Most ski areas are not making snow with all the natural snow we’ve been getting!)
Looks like another couple inches of snow is in the forecast for Saturday through Monday.
Heading into the SkiNC / Beech Mountain Summit for Saturday, February 20th, things are looking near perfect for outdoor fun at Beech Mountain.
Be sure to visit our SkiNC Summit pages for all the details on that great annual event coming up next weekend!
