Science in the Mountains: Forecasting Wind Gusts on the Summit

2014-07-29 18:29:38.000 – Tom Padham,  Weather Observer


Our Science In the Mountains lecture series continues tomorrow at the Weather Discovery Center in North Conway, with this week’s topic forecasting wind gusts on the summit. Ever wonder what creates a wind gust? Or why some days winds may be a steady breeze and others an erratic gale that tosses you around? I will be discussing a research project I worked on this past summer, where I studied wind data on the summit in order to gain a better understanding of the nature of our world-famous winds. The conclusions of the project will be discussed, as well as their implications for the future of forecasting on the summit. The event takes place at 7pm tomorrow, and is free! Hope to see you there!
