It is the last day of the ski and ride season. The weather will be beautiful on Sunday with mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the 40s and 50s. HoliMont and Hunter Mountain are the last two resorts open. Let’s go over a brief forecast for Sunday and a spring outlook. I will have a season summary published on Tuesday, April 11th. Let's break it all down...
It has been another great ski and ride season with a lot of ups and downs. We have two more resorts open on Sunday, which are HoliMont and Hunter Mountain in New York. HoliMont in western NY has 29% of the terrain open (16 trails) and Hunter Mountain has 31% of the terrain open (22 trails).
Here is a look at the total snowfall this season!
Sunday will be a beautiful day throughout the East Coast with mostly sunny skies. Morning temperatures will be just below freezing in NY, which will allow for some nice corduroy and carvable morning turns. Temperatures will warm quickly into the upper 40s and lower 50s with light and variable winds.
A quick look at next week will continue to see dry and warm weather. The storm track has shifted to the north and south, which will cause no storms to affect the region. It really is the end of the season with no storms forecasted next week and high temperatures in the 60s, 70s, and even 80s.
Resorts in New England will still be open for another few weeks and Killington, VT will likely continue through May. Keep a tab on the New England Daily Snow for more weather and ski updates this spring.
The remainder of April will likely see above average temperatures with an inactive period of weather. There will be precipitation after next week, but it will not be as wet as early April. There could be some cooler air near the end of April, but it does not look significant enough to bring any snow. Spring will be in full swing with warm temperatures and dry weather.
A quick look at the rest of spring will continue to see warmer than average temperatures. The active weather is expected to return in May, with above average precipitation. Here is a look at the Climate Prediction Center’s temperature and precipitation probability for April, May, and June.
Thanks for reading and have a great closing day. I will have a season summary on Tuesday, April 11th.
