Spring Is In The Air

2014-04-02 18:12:01.000 – Michael Kyle,  Weather Observer


All though the weather conditions might not be as tranquil as Weather Observer Rebecca Scholand was humorously referring to in yesterday’s observer comment; spring is truly in the air here on the summit. Since today is shift change day, it was surprising to return to the summit and see the snow melting and temperatures in the mid-twenties. While I love experiencing Mount Washington’s extreme winter weather, spring and summer bring a whole different type of extreme weather. Thunderstorm and severe weather season is quickly approaching us here in the New England region. Before we know it will be common place to see cumulonimbus clouds towering in the afternoon skies and reports of hail, strong winds and tornados occurring nationwide.

To get everyone excited about the change in weather the Mount Washington Observatory has partnered up with WMTW 8 Maine’s Total Weather and News , Residence Inn Marriot Cog Railway to bring an Evening with Ginger Zee. That’s right, this Friday night (April 4th) you have the opportunity to see Ginger Zee talk about her first-hand experiences as storm chaser and her rise to stardom in becoming the Chief Meteorologist on Good Morning America. It addition to Ginger Zee you also have the opportunity to meet the WMTW 8 Meteorologist as well as see a live video call from us here on the summit. If you didn’t get your tickets yet do not worry there are still some left and in addition they will be sold at the door on the night of the event. For more information on this event click on the Ginger Zee link above.
