Well, so far Mt. Washington is beating last year's pace as we head into
fall (last year's event dates in parentheses.)

Good morning from the summit of Mt. Washington! It's a wintery morning
here on the summit after an interesting day of weather Friday. The
remnants of Floyd brought a total of 7.15 inches of rain and 3.2 inches
of snow to the summit. Winds were impressive throughout the day, gusting
over 100 mph for much of the afternoon and finally peaking at 128 mph at
6:30 pm. Winds are slowly decreasing this morning and precipitation has
stopped over most of New England, with the exception of northeastern
portions of Maine. The remnants of Floyd are now moving off shore and
out to sea, making way for a strong area of high pressure to move in and
take control of our weather for the weekend. Along with the sun, we can
expect fall like temperatures to last through Monday. By Tuesday we'll
start to see an increase in clouds and the chance of showers as a fast
moving front pushes through the area. Behind the front clear skies
return for mid week.
