Don’t get alarmed by today’s weather picture! We didn’t have a blizzard last night on the mountain. It’s just one of the winter scenes you’ll see this weekend at Christina Kline’s show. But it does make you think of the colder days ahead. Hard to believe summer is just about done.

Tuesday was pretty much a sunny day. We started off with some cloudiness early. By afternoon we saw more sun than clouds. Some widely isolated thunderstorms even popped up a couple hours before dark but the majority of the activity stayed west of the BRP and fizzled out after daylight. We’re headed into a pretty quiet period weather wise over the next 5-7 days. There’s a slight chance of a thunderstorm on Thursday as a front moves through, but not much. After that it looks very nice for the upcoming Labor Day weekend.
