The fog returns

After several days of amazing weather, sun, blue skies, low winds with no fog or rain, it’s been back to reality today with a return to the fog, some rain showers and slightly higher winds. It’s still very warm though, well over 50 degrees, but I must admit that I’m really glad to be missing the 90+ degree temperatures down in the valley. Tomorrow could be interesting too with the weather models indicating the chance for some afternoon thunderstorms.
The observatory has a lot going on over the next few weeks starting this Wednesday with the second Science in the Mountains lecture series, these are free programs open to the public that take place each Wednesday through the summer at 7pm in our North Conway office – they are well worth attending! This Saturday is of course our 11th installment of the very popular hike-a-thon Seek The Peak – good luck to all those hiking and thank you for your support. We also have several overnight Summit Adventures through the summer for those adventurous folks who’d like to spend some time at the observatory and see behind the scenes, meet the observers and Marty too.
Must be going as I can smell dinner cooking downstairs….
