Cold Weather to Come!

2013-09-04 22:16:32.000 – Mike Dorfman,  Weather Observer


While it may seem brisk in the valley tomorrow, it will seem downright wintery up here on the summit! With highs in the low to mid 30’s, the summit will be flirting with freezing all day, and mixed precipitation showers will be falling in the morning. With possible de-icing required tonight and tomorrow night, I, as the night observer, won’t have a hard time staying awake!

Tomorrow night, temperatures are projected to drop into the low 20’s. It may be finally time to pull out the warm EMS gloves for the season! If you’re headed above tree line for a hike, be sure to check our higher summits forecast, and don’t get caught in wintry weather unprepared!

Observer Footnote:The Sunset Soiree, our annual fundraising event, is coming up this Saturday! Enjoy a private wine tasting, dessert and a sunset champagne toast on the summit, and a delicious dinner at the Thompson House Eatery in Jackson! A limited number of tickets remain, so reserve yours today!
