Cold Weather Shift

2014-02-09 22:05:52.000 – Mike Carmon,  Weather Observer/Education Specialist


It’s been a relatively quiet weather week for us.

After our shift change day storm, which dumped over a foot of snow on the summit, high pressure has remained in control of the weather for most of our shift. A weak low pressure system is passing through as I speak, though, and that will most likely provide a quick couple inches of snow, before quickly departing out to sea.

Looking ahead, chillier arctic air will make a return behind a cold front tomorrow, with temperatures once again approaching 20 below zero F by tomorrow night! Combine those temperatures with winds in the 45-60 mph range, and we’ll see some frigid wind chills, approaching 60 below zero F at times. This has seemed to become an all-too common scenario for us lately.

We certainly seem to have gained the distinction of being the cold weather shift this winter!
