Undercast Picture From This Morning
It is not very often here on the summit of Mount Washington that we are out of the clouds for an entire day with low winds and “warm” (25-30 degree) temperatures. Today was one of those day s but the best part was that the valley got to experience what we see most days. Being in the clouds about 60% of the year our most typical view is overcast and foggy. Today we have had an undercast all day meaning that the valley had overcast nasty looking sky all day, while here on the summit we enjoyed a sea of clouds below us and blue bird skies above. In all of my time here on the summit I have yet to have an entire day with an undercast like we experienced today. Needless to say I have enjoyed every moment of it as we will soon move back into the clouds and the valley will have the views again.
Here are some of the memorable undercasts I have seen while on the summit. None of them lasting a whole day.
