A Chill In The Air

The bitter cold of winter has its grip on us, and doesn’t look to let go anytime soon! We’ve hit a low temperature of -24F three times this month already, and there looks to be colder times to come on the summit.
Our shift isn’t expecting to get above zero degrees nearly at all through next Wednesday (with the only possible exception to this coming on Saturday, where we have a chance of hitting a high temperature of +3F). Otherwise, we’ll be well into the negative numbers, with the most frigid conditions setting up for Sunday.
On Sunday, we could be pushing -25F once again, with very strong winds gusting in excess of 100 mph. A potential snow storm could follow that up on Monday, followed by another big dip in temperatures on Tuesday.
If you plan on coming to the summit, or anywhere else in the Whites for that matter, the name of the game for the next week will be ‘bundle up’!
