A Gusty Return
2014-06-18 20:00:54.000 – Kaitlyn O`Brien, Weather Observer/Education Specialist
Weather conditions on the summit were far different from the muggy morning we left behind in the valley today. Throughout shift change, winds were sustained above 50mph and at times, gusted to well over 70mph. After several past shifts with eerily calm conditions (for Mount Washington standards of course!), I for one welcomed this change of pace. With an area of low pressure slowly departing the region, gusty winds and lingering rain showers will persist overnight tonight before gradually clearing as an area of high pressure moves in tomorrow, bringing fairer skies. I have my fingers crossed for the nice weather to continue into the weekend, as we are all looking forward to the 54th Annual Run to the Clouds on Saturday!
