Exciting Times on the Summit

2014-10-25 18:40:00.000 – Mike Dorfman, Weather Observer/IT Specialist


The last few days have been exciting!When we arrived at the summit on Wednesday, it was a winter wonderland!We received over an inch of liquid equivalent Wednesday through Thursday.With temperatures hovering right around freezing, everything on the summit was covered in a thick coat of several inches of glaze ice!The grip of my Vasque boots paired with traction spikes made for safe travel during observations, but ice skates would have been more exciting (and dangerous).

In other news, we’re in the process of putting the finishing touches on our new website! My main role the past few weeks (when I haven’t been working on my double-axel on the icy observation deck) has been to finalize the new Current Summit Conditions page for our new website.Using modern graphing technology, we have completely revamped our current conditions display (see the picture attached for a sneak peak).We’re adding a few new 24-hour graphed variables including wind chill, dew point, and pressure!We’ll also be extending our Higher Summits Forecast period to 48-hours which will be updated twice a day when it goes live.So be sure to keep your eyes peeled in the coming weeks when all of these changes go live on our website!
