Science in the Mountains Begins Tomorrow

It’s that time of year once again!

Our Science in the Mountains lecture series kicks-off at the Weather Discovery Center in North Conway Village at 7PM tomorrow evening! The series continues every Wednesday night through August 20th, with a wide range of topics being covered. We’re particularly excited this year, because all of the presentations will be given by our very own staff.

I have the privilege this year of getting things started, as I’ll be presenting on the ‘Complexity of Weather Forecasting in the Presidential Range’. I was lucky enough to give the same presentation at the American Meteorological Society’s Annual Meeting in Atlanta, GA earlier this year. I’m very excited to share an extended version of that presentation tomorrow evening a little closer to home!

I’ll be speaking on the unique challenges that we as forecasters face in predicting the weather for the summit of Mount Washington and the surrounding higher summits of the Presidential Range. If you’ve ever wondered about the nuts-and-bolts of our forecasting process, why it’s so difficult to forecast the weather in general, and the added challenges in forecasting for a place such as the Presidential Range of the White Mountains, don’t miss a great chance to hear more.

And, as always, it’s absolutely free!
