Wow, was it nice to see the sun peaking out from the clouds this morning! Yesterday brought some brutal conditions as temperatures were bitterly cold and the winds were whipping around all day. Skiers rejoice today though, as ski areas in the region will have sweet powder conditions as a result of yesterday. An area of high pressure over Arkansas in conjunction with the low off the coast of New England will continue to create northwest flow for the majority of the day. However, snow showers should taper off by the evening with winds drastically decreasing. Tomorrow will be a beautiful day, with mostly sunny skies and more tolerable temperatures. It wouldn’t be a bad day to play hookie from work and get in a powder day before the crowds arrive for MLK weekend!
