least a week and a half at this point, maybe longer, have to depends, see how the pattern sets up. poconos are loving this. taking advantage of the colds arctic air in place, big boulder cranking out the snow, with this forecast, coming up, no problem staying open until april if they want to. with ideal snow making conditions and the potential for some more natural snow. so here are the headlines, looking on tap on the menu, extended arctic blast, talking highs stuck in the three's, pretty much for the next seven days or so. like i said, not even close to 50 degrees for awhile. so feels like the middle of winter, january, actually much colder, running good 20 degrees below average, and we have to watch the potential nor'easter threat for next week specially monday night into tuesday at this point. so here is the set up. just like last weekends, if you remember, saturday, we had the jet stream dropping to the south, still a lot of cold air in canada, deep snow pack, able to seep southward, that's a trough, dip in the jet stream stay in place over the jet stream the next few days. colds air isn't going anywhere. that's why.
