Snowshoe Mountain’s web cams caught a frozen surprise late Wednesday night and Thursday morning.
The resort tweeted Wednesday at 9:00 p.m. that they were seeing snowflakes fall from the sky.
The snow formed along the west-facing slopes of the Alleghanys Wednesday night. Cold air and moisture allowed the snow to develop during the night. However, much of the frozen precipitation failed to accumulate on the ground. Although, colder surfaces did see a light dusting.
Snow isn’t in the forecast for the near future, but much of the region will deal with gusty winds and cooler air from the northwest. Patchy frost is possible in some spots overnight Friday and into Saturday morning.
Snowshoe Mountain’s opening day for the 2019-2020 season is November 22.
