Reflections on Tip Top

What a difference a day makes. Earlier this evening the summit’s weather drastically changed as did most of New England’s. The passage of the cold front was more then welcoming to relieve the region of hot humid air mass. Here is a comparison of yesterday’s and today’s 2 AM EDT synoptic observations:

Observed Temperature and 24 Minimum TemperaturesYesterday: 54°F/ 54°F,Today: 50° F/ 44° F

Wind Direction and SpeedYesterday: West at 56 mph gusting to 66 mph,Today: North at 7 mph

Relative HumidityYesterday: 100 %,Today: 40%

VisibilityYesterday: 25 feet,Today: 90 miles

Feel of AirYesterday: Balmy and moist.Today: Cool and dry!

Sky ConditionYesterday: Fog,Today: Mostly clear with partial undercast.

MoonYesterday: What moon?Today: So bright you can bask in the moonlight!

SunriseYesterday: Did the sun rise?Today: Spectacular!

Since Wednesday night the summit staff hasn’t seen much clearing. From Thursday to late Sunday was mostly fog along with some passing thunderstorms and rain showers. To us this is a much welcomed change. Who knows, if you are visiting us today maybe you will see Nin outside enjoying a beautiful day!
