Temperatures in the low 60s mixed with totally clear skies would be the kind of holiday travel weather of your dreams. I pinched myself a few times and have come to believe that today is indeed real. Afternoon readings were about eight degrees above normal in the city. We’ll see another mild one tomorrow, with perhaps slightly lower temperatures.

Opening Day: Given the cold weather of the past 10 days, regional ski resorts have been galloping into winter. Timberline opened half of its mountain today, and Snowshoe is also offering up snowy slopes.
