    A steady 30 degrees at the Mountain Inn today – will probably dip a little more before heading upward again tomorrow. Fog and drizzle all day today – not helping the snow base, but not hurting much at these temps. No ice accumulations as of 4pm but be careful out there. Looks like that massive pool of cold air is going to stay just off to the West (again!).
