My usual morning routine in the winter is roll out of bed, get myself largely dressed and head upstairs to check in and get a handle on the conditions, and the overnight routine. As an intermediate step to going upstairs, I usually struggle with the tower door, suctioned shut by high winds most of the winter. With a routine powerful pull on the door, I nearly knocked myself out, as the door swung effortlessly towards me. After winds peaking out over 100mph during four of the last five days, I had forgotten that in light winds, the door can, at times, open with little effort. I laughed my way into the weather room to see winds of 12mph, and exceptional (but fleeting) views…

Conditions will remain pleasant on the peak through the forecast period, as high pressure deflects any major storms around the White Mountain Region. Though fog will be intermittent on the peaks over the coming days, ample views should abound from our webcams.

Which brings us to today’s excitement (and organization wide frenzy). The new featured content is set to launch today, as a thank you to our members for their support. Sometime this afternoon, by following these instructions, members will be able to see more webcam views, webcam videos, and the new weekly video blog from the summit. Any questions can be posed in our forums, where other members and our tech gurus may be able to help…

Enjoy and thanks to all the members of the non-profit Mount Washington Observatory for your support.
