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.

Wednesday was a much more humid day than any other this week so far. We again started off with some cloudiness early and from time to time throughout the day. By late afternoon we again saw some widely scattered afternoon thunderstorms, mainly west of the BRP. Today will be another hot & more humid day. Chances for thunderstorms are better late this evening and tonight before we break out into sunny skies for the remainder of the holiday weekend.
