Nice Weather for the Weekend

2011-10-07 21:33:50.000 – Kevin Cronin,  Summit Intern

The high pressure system over the northeast will remain over the region forthis weekend. This will allow conditions to be beautiful at the summit withtemperatures well above average and clear skies.The temperature at the summit tomorrow is forecast to be 58 degrees which is 1degree above the daily record. However winds are forecast to be breezy withsustained winds 35-50 mph. Just last Wednesday conditions were a stark contrast from the weather seen today and the weather forecast for this weekend. Temperatures were in the 20s with riming on the summit. These icing conditions are not unusual for the summit and its rare to see temperatures this high this late in the fall.

If you are planning on coming to the summit before the winter, this is your lastchance for summer-like conditions. Winter is closing in soon so the opportunity toenjoy nice weather on the summit is limited. You can drive your self up on the autoroad or purchase a ticket from the cog railway.
