No skiing

[Morning 2/25]: High winds and gusts make it hazardous to be out in the woods (you know, falling trees and windblown branches). Some touring centers are closed due to the wind, including Notchview, Prospect Mountain, and Lapland Lake. With the winds and debris that are likely to be on trails, today’s a no-ski day.

Weather chilly in the northern mountain regions, with some light to moderate snowfall possible today into early Tuesday. High winds and gusts today and tomorrow will create lots of debris hazards on trails. Break out the rock skis this week.

The week ahead

Weather vane

Wednesday evening into the overnight, a few inches of snow could drop on the downstate region. Could help freshen up Minnewaska and Mohonk. This will be followed by a warming trend bringing daytime temps into the upper 30s and 40s for Thursday and Friday. Total snowfall for the week could amount to several inches in the Catskills and Adirondacks, with greater amounts in the Tug Hill region.

Colder weather returns on the weekend of March 2-3, along with brisk winds and some additional precipitation. South of Albany and Vermont we will likely get a mix during Saturday, hopefully more snow at the higher elevations.
