Hurricane Earl

2010-09-01 21:51:51.000 – Brian Clark,  Observer and Meteorologist


The big story in the ‘weather world’ over the last couple of days has been Hurricane Earl. After bringing quite a bit of rain, high winds, and big waves to areas of the Caribbean, the big question now is, where will the storm go next? Current forecasts show the system grazing the Outer Banks of the Carolinas, and then continuing along the coastline. While there is still cause for speculation as to exactly where the storm will track, it looks as though there is a very good chance it will have some affect on our weather here on Mount Washington over the coming days. That exact track of the storm will determine how much rain we end up getting. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your point of view), it does not look like Earl will bring high winds to the mountain, by our standards of course.

The fact that this coming weekend is Labor Day weekend, the unofficial end of summer, makes this storm of an even greater interest to a lot of folks out there. Keep an eye on the weather page; we’ll be sure to keep you updated on how the storm will affect the mountain, and the region in general.
