Wet Weather Here to Stay

If you live in New England or the Mid-Atlantic, get used to the weather you have been experiencing over the weekend, because it’s not going to change real soon. A very large, complex, and slow moving low pressure system is meandering along the Mid-Atlantic coast right now, and will continue to do so through at least through the end of the work week. This means lots of cloudy skies, rain showers, and some steadier periods of rain as disturbances move along the stationary front.
Here on the mountain, all that moisture of course translates to fog in addition to the rain. Although we got a quick glimpse of the Northern Presidentials this morning when winds dropped below 10 mph for a time, we will not likely see much more than a few hundred feet until we head off the mountain on Wednesday. Not that this is completely out of the ordinary.
Given all this, I am very glad I took advantage of the beautiful weather we had on Thursday and Friday to get outside a bit. Having gotten to experience some really nice weather will make all this stretch of soggy, wet weather easier to handle.
