2022-2023 Fall/Winter Mountains Thread


Recommended Posts

The sun broke out today in Maggie and it felt good! I'm seeing a fairly active weather pattern the next couple of weeks with reinforcing troughs and cold fronts every 4 to 5 day progressively getting colder.

Yeah we were roasting this time last year. What a difference a year makes 

Yep, I remember mid-70's and near 80's up until mid to late October. Seem to flip cool around the week of Halloween if I am remembering correctly.

2nd straight day with a low of exactly 34.2°.

Looks like some big winds possible behind the front Friday that might put an end to high elevation leaf season.

Talk about a front that's mellowed out. Looking much less sharp than the past couple days had shown. Maybe some light showers and not much of a cold press. I'll take it, though, the longer fall photography season lasts the better.

We totally missed out on rain yesterday and overnight here in Maggie. The Polar trees dumped about 50% of their leaves with the breezy winds the past 24 hours. Peak leaves are quickly moving down towards the Valley and should peak out this weekend or early next week. It's interesting to see temperatures forecast by the models early next week with highs in the low 40’s and morning lows in the low 20’s!

Thinking about heading to Boone Saturday for the day..   are the leaves peak in that area?    Thanks for any info!
Yeah they're pretty solid. They held up decent through the rain but we'll see what the wind does tonight.

However just be aware traffic is going to be a nightmare moreso than usual. The Wooly Worm Festival and Valle Crucis Fair are this weekend and we're expecting the biggest single day traffic influx of the year. Our business in Blowing Rock that day is comparable to Black Friday.

33 and frosty at the house this morning. Certainly looking like a early taste of Arctic air arriving Monday with a couple of shortwaves rotating around the Hudson Bay low bringing reinforcing shots of cold air through at least next Thursday.
