The Streak Has Ended

Yesterday at around 7:30 PM the summit’s temperature reached a reading greater than 32°F for the first time in 87 days. That 87 day stretch of below-freezing temperatures is tied for the 5th longest, for days with temperatures below freezing since 1935. This was the first time in 37 years that the summit saw more than 80 consecutive days with temperatures not exceeding the freezing point! For many reasons, this has been an impressive winter across New England. While it was fun seeing how long this streak was going to last, now that it is over, it’s nice to see warmer temperatures making their way back into the forecast. Although this weekend’s forecast might be calling for another late-season storm in the higher elevations of the White Mountains, the long range forecast is showing the return of above-average temperatures for the end of the next work week.
