Showers approaching the summit

After a pleasant day yesterday with warm temperatures and light winds the summit is experiencing rain showers and some fog. Fog is almost the status quo up here during the summer time, which can be a little demoralizing at times but it makes the moment the fog clears or a sunny day feel all the more spectacular. But one interesting thing about Mt Washington is how quick the weather changes up here (although not always for the better). We frequently see storm systems, but they usually move right on through as quickly as they came. This keeps things exciting and also keeps the meteorologists at the observatory quite busy with observations.
Tomorrow’s weather looks to be an improvement over today, just in time for Independence Day. An afternoon thundershower cannot be ruled out, but overall the day will be much drier than the current weather. So if your looking to head up to the summit for the holiday tomorrow be sure to pack a rain jacket, but hopefully it won’t see any use!
