“It’s not what we expected for Presidents’ Day and certainly not what skiers wanted, but it’s what we got,” according to RaysWeather.com’s forecast discussion for Boone. “Record highs for the date are in the upper 60’s (all from the “Dust Bowl” year of 1939).”  

For the rest of the week, the weather is forecasted to be unseasonably warm. The highs are expected to range from high 50s to low 60s and the lows are forecasted to be mid-to-high 40s.
