A Busy Weekend in the Weather World

While we always remain vigilant of the weather, we are especially keeping an eye on Hurricane Arthur as it continues to make its way up the eastern seaboard. As a cold front simultaneously moves in from the west, it appears that models are generally keeping the storm out to sea by the time it advances toward New England, however we are still expecting to see heavy rains, thunderstorms, and strong, gusty winds up here on the summit Friday evening through the morning hours on Saturday.
In addition to monitoring Hurricane Arthur’s progression through the weekend, we also saw some thunderstorms pass over the higher summits tonight as a line of storms developed in advance of the cold front. It sure has been an interesting start to the shift week so far and we are staying busy!
