It's Hump Week of Winter 20132014



    Plenty of cold so far, plenty more to go. But the sun is getting higher, spring can not be stopped. Meanwhile we are setting new low readings for winter 2013/2014
    The summit of Mount Washington NH cooled to -26F Sunday January 26th. The coldest since January 22-24 2013 (-28F, -35F, & -29F).
     The wind at the observatory gust well over 100 mph. Here is the view from the summit of Wildcat Ski Area Sunday midday.


    Yes, it snowed this weekend. Up to 10" north Maine.
    The 14th weekend in a row with either snow, rain, and or ice.
    Bob Hennessy sent this photo from Sugarbush Vermont form Sunday afternoon, it was -12F.


    Who has the deepest snow in the east? Sugar Mountain NC, where the base depth is 100". But we don't have a picture from there (more snow in NC this week)
    We do have a picture from Ontario, where the snow banks are close to the same size as sugar Mountain.


    Sunday at Sebec Lake Maine, very pretty... and a tad windy.


    Maine is not the only place with ice.
    Blair Perkins tweeted this photo from the Ferry out of Hyannis Harbor, on his way home to Nantucket Island.


    Will our two storm a week streak end this week. Most indications are that the storm bringing snow to Georgia Tuesday will miss to the south and east of Cape Cod on Wednesday, I will believe that only as it happens.
    More snow and rain is likely in New England (and at The Super Bowl) next weekend, as the storms out of the Pacific Ocean crash through the ridge that has brought record warmth from Alaska to California. With all the cold around, this Pacific Energy raises the stakes as we approach the real blizzard season here in New England, February and March.
