The initial cold front has pushed over the peak, dropping temperatures significantly over the past 12 hours, but temps still remain above the freezing mark. The REAL cold air remains bottled up still behind a weak secondary disturbance that will push through later in the day today, cooling summits further, and perhaps touching off a few snow showers. Temps thereafter may not climb above the freezing mark for over 24 hous.

Yesterday as the front passed through, we were hosting a tour comprised of President Sara Jayne Steen, Steve Barba, Steve Kahl and Dr. JoeZabransky from Plymouth State University to the Observatory yesterday. PSU has a top-tier meteorology program, and we have been fortunate to have many great interns and observers at the summit come from their program. We are looking forward to working with them on a number of projects in the future.

During their tour of the station, they got to see some pretty typical conditions for an autumn frontal passage. Rain and fog and moderate winds, and now some more cold on the way tonight…might be interesting to check the webcams tomorrow morning for sure!
