Wednesday was a perfect day for trick or treating. Last night wasn’t as chilly as the past few nights. Today will be a warm and mild day before we head toward much cooler weather beginning Friday. The days will feel more like Fall as we head into the weekend and the first part of next week. Again, no rain is on the horizon at this time.

One good bit of news, Christina Kline, NCL outdoors writer, dropped a comment on the website yesterday to let us know things are looking up for snowmaking on the mountain. Christina lives on the mountain year round and is the manager at Blue Ridge Mountain Sports in the Mountain Inn. She has a pretty good ear on what develops up there.

She said:

I heard from someone in lift operations who works extensively with the Lake in summer that since Saturday enough has filled in that it is completely up to the dock and “if we get any more water I don’t know where we’re going to put it!”

Sounds good to me!

And to us Christina, that is very good news, now we just need the cold temps and the rest will happen!

The current national forecast map shows a cold front moving toward our area over the next 24 hours, but not before a beautiful day today. Warm temperatures will be the rule. Gusty winds may begin late Thursday as the front works through the area.

Out 48 hours cooler high pressure regains control keeping fall like temps in the forecast through the weekend, expect at times, gusty winds Friday behind the cold frontal passage.
