Foggy Week Take 2

Quick Break From The Fog
So far for the month of May, the weather during our shift weeks on the summit has been very foggy. Last shift we did not have a single day without any fog being observed. In total, during our last shift week, we spent 82 percent of our week in the fog, only really clearing from the fog on the last day of the week when we headed back down the mountain. So far this shift, the foggy trend that started last shift has continued. As of 3PM this afternoon, we have spent 82 percent of our current shift week in the fog. This morning the summit did manage to partially clear out of the fog for a little while, but never entirely cleared though. This was short lived, as the fog quickly engulfed the summit again by the afternoon. Luckily the forecasts are starting to trend towards slightly clearer conditions after the weekend. So, fingers crossed that the foggy conditions that have engulfed the summit so far this week will give way to clearer skies.
