Mount Washington has some of the most mysterious weather patterns in the world. It has also been called the "tail pipe of the northeast". What do you think about the idea of having someone from the observatory prepare a presentation for the 2007 Blue Hill Observatory Annual Weather Conference? (Southern New England Weather Conference) Scientists come from all over the country to present at the conference. It would be great to hear a lecture on the whys of Mount Washington's weather :D .

I think that is a good idea. I could swear that Mount Washington has sent presenters to that conference in the past. I'm guessing that having somebody from MWO every year might be a little overkill.

I've been going to the Weather Conference (missed last year) for the past 4 years and don't recall anything about Mt. Washington. I agree, it would be too much for anyone from the observatory to attend each year, but attending one year would be great for all us weather enthusiasts. Mt. Washington's weather patterns have fascinated me for years. I'm sure others would really enjoy hearing more about them too.

Can you guys give me more information on this weather conference, I know I missed it this year. I am an avid weather nut and we didnt have anything like this in Maryland. Or are there any type of weather group discussions, etc type of weather things?
thanks so much

The Weather Conference was awesome! The discussions were interesting and educational. I liked that they were at a level that weather enthusiasts and professionals can both enjoy and learn from. The powerpoints from the conference should be posted on the website at www.sneweatherconf.org ...check them out. The conference was held in Brookline, MA this year. The website has all the information.
Nice to "meet" another weather enthusiast (geek ).

Hey Dave (aka AlpineHikerFan) and Brad,

Glad you liked the ppts. It was a really fun conference. We are big time weather GEEKS :D ! We are supposed to get a fairly substantial rain storm tomorrow...wish it were snow! At least it finally is getting cold and starting to feel like a New England winter. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving.

I know the staff is at the NE Snow Conference put on by Lyndon nearly annually, but I'm not sure of the status of this one within the organization. That being said, I'm sure that the decision makers in the organization have seen this thread.

I'm not crazy. Bryan Yeaton presented in 2005: SNE Weather Conference (http://www.sneweatherconf.org/presentations.shtml)

Hello Debbie,
Right bacl at you. It just started raining here, no ice or snow here :(
I too wish it was snow, hopefully by the end of next week, their is a batch of arctic air coming down from Canada and it should get here by next end of next week , of course it will be modified somewhat, but I'll take the colder air, it has to be better than the 50's we are having now.
Hope you have a great Thanskgiving as well.
Enjoy:)
