Winter’s Not Going Anywhere

2014-02-26 20:58:10.000 – Mike Carmon,  Weather Observer/Education Specialist


March may be on the horizon, but winter is here to stay, at least for a while.Another blast of arctic air is now making its way into New England, which will keep temperatures in the valleys suppressed in the teens and twenties during the day for the foreseeable future, with overnight lows dropping below zero at times. In addition, a series of disturbances over the next week will bring several rounds of light snow, keeping that winter motif alive and well for the commencement of March.

Up on the summit, temperatures will struggle to climb above zero at all, with overnight lows bottoming out around 20F below for the next few nights.

This looks to be the theme for summit and valley through early next week, so don’t pack away that winter gear just yet!

Observer Footnote: Want to get some real experience of working at a mountaintop weather station? Do you have an interest in extreme weather? Then consider applying for our summer internship program! The deadline for applications is March 5th, so head HERE to apply today!
