Recreational Forecast

General:

Partly sunny with a chance of showers early over southern areas as well as in New Hampshire. Warm with highs in the mid 60s to lower 70s. Winds will be from the south at 5 to 10 mph.

Brief:

With all the recent rain and warmer temperatures, spring is moving along quickly.  I feel like the grass actually got green between my morning and evening commute to work yesterday.  Bulbs are also starting to come up in my yard here in the Kingdom, which is kind of funny as there is snow pile right next to them.  While it seemed like spring was slow to start this week’s weather will continue the spring trend. This includes highs in the 60s through Tuesday and then highs will drop closer to average in the middle of the week.  As what you would expect from spring weather, there will be a chance of rain showers everyday till Thursday. Therefore, if you have not tuned up your yard equipment yet get on it because as we all know when the grass does grow in our region it grows quick!

Winds:

Winds will be from the south at 5 to 15 mph at 2000 feet. At 4000 feet winds will be from the south to southwest at 10 to 20 mph. At 6000 feet winds will be from the southwest at 20 to 35 mph.

Mountain:

While it feels like and the calendar says its spring, there is plenty of snow to be found at higher elevations.  The area has received a fair amount of rain over the past week definitely putting a dent in the snowpack. If you are on the mountain today except to see some wet and sticky conditions and plenty of running water.  The snow will be prime spring conditions with a chance to even see some coveted corn snow. You also will be able to leave that extra layer at home today as lower elevations will see highs ranging through the 60s. In mid to upper elevations expect to see highs in the balmy 50s.  Currently, Vermont is the only state in our region that is offering lift service. Today is the last day of lift service at Stowe Mountain Resort. Sugarbush will be open through next weekend and reopen for Cinco de Mayo weekend. Jay Peak and Killington will offer skiing until May. So if you have not gotten your skiing and riding fix in just yet you have plenty of time to get out there.  There is also plenty of backcountry skiing to be had, but please be careful as snow conditions can change quickly this time of year.
