Seek the Peak Weather Outlook…

2006-07-21 15:57:51.000 – Jim Salge,  Observer

Seek the Peak is tomorrow morning!

I’ve just compiled and posted the afternoon summits outlook, but for those hiking tomorrow, I’ll give a brief discussion of the weather pattern, and how we think that it will impact our big event tomorrow!

Today’s front will clear out tonight, and we expect summits to be in and out of the clouds, or even perhaps out of the clouds for a time early tomorrow morning. Morning sunshine likely on the peak!

Unfortunately though, the front will stall to the east, and another low will travel up from the south during the afternoon tomorrow. For the summits, this will mean a return into the clouds, and an increasing chance of showers through the day. There is also the possibility of an embedded thunderstorm in the afternoon. The good news is that temperatures will be mild, in the 50s, and winds will be very light, under 20mph!

What does this mean for hikers. START EARLY AND SUMMIT BEFORE THE RAIN! Registration at Pinkham Notch begins as early at 6:30AM…and continues through 10AM. For everyone else, the BBQ at Wildcat may need to be held inside, but will go on!

Good luck to all the hikers and thanks for your support of the membership supported Mount Washington Observatory!
