Good morning from a windy, chilly and generally all round bad weather day at Appi.

It’s the first of March and today does not bring pleasant weather. I woke up early this morning to very high winds and the snowfall we have coming down sideways. The temperatures dropped considerably overnight to -10 outside my front door. Those temperatures coupled with the strong gusting winds will mean a wind-chill of around -25 on the mountain. If you’re heading out today you better make sure you’ve got plenty of layers on and a few more in your backpack just in case. The windy conditions should abate somewhat but it’s going to be much later in the day before any normalcy returns.

Yesterday was slushy everywhere and the mountain was deserted. The rain/snow combination kept everyone inside.

The next few days are looking fairly decent though for snowfall. We should see temperatures increasing every day until we’re in the positive range for the weekend and mostly cloudy skies until Friday. Most of the anticipated snow should come on Wednesday night and Thursday morning but with the rising temperatures over the weekend it sounds like it’s not going to stay around for a meaningful amount of time.

Bundle up and stay safe.
