Weather on the ‘rock’ pile

Marty the ‘Weather’ cat

After breaking five daily record high temperatures in March and one so far in April winter has returned to the ‘rock pile’ with a few inches of fresh snow and temperatures today that will be 15 degrees below the daily average. After a few very calm days on the past couple of shifts winds have also picked up with a peak gust yesterday of 91 mile per hour from the Northwest.

If you take a look at some of the Webcams you’ll see a fresh coat of snow across the higher Summits with the Northern Presidentials looking spectacular with the sun setting as I write this.

Being a mountain top Weather Observatory we have a number of instruments to tell us the temperature, wind speed and direction, barometric pressure and radar via the Internet to tell us what’s approaching however if you want a quick read on the current weather the best place to go is to the living room and if Marty is curled up on one of the couches then you know it’s cold and blustery outside. If Marty is following an Observer up to the Observation deck then you know it’s a warm and sunny day outside.
