    Default Record Cold Likely

    Early this week record cold is forecast for Mount Washington. Models are indicating lows around -30F for Tuesday, which will easily shatter the old record low of -23F.

    That's what happens when you grab a groundhog out of a hole and hold him up by his neck.

    Default Winter

    Well, robins pretty much stay around this area all winter, going out near the coast where there is little snow and open fields to find food. I have been seeing them for weeks feeding on staghorn sumac berries, but the true harbinger of spring to me is the redwing blackbird. The males arrive first and set up their territories. Even though it is still frozen, the marsh behind my house was full of them this morning. So despite the harsh winter conditions forecast for MW it looks like an early spring in southern NH.

    Models are indicating between -30F and -32F for the summit. Over the last few months when we got to the forecast low the minimums came in a few degrees colder. So -34 or -35F is not out of the question, should everything go right.

    As for coldest March temperature on record, I doubt it. -38F is a long way from -32F.

    Looks like another shot at -30F for Thursday as well.

    Talking wow

    Boy with it getting this cold in March the ski resorts will be able to blow snow.
    Looks like we should be seeing resort skiing into mid April. Then Tucks in May.
    Then only 4 months and put the skis back on. Wish I hadn't destroyed my knee cause I could sure be working on my ski tan the next couple months. Oh well always next year. Bring on the cold!!!!!!!!!!! Whats the guess with the wind chill?? Looks like 60 mile per hour right now.

    They can, but that doesn't mean they will. Blowing snow is incredibly expensive, and with plenty of coverage there is no need to make snow. There is really no gain for them to make snow. After March the money making is essentially over. I'd argue that its over after February, but we wont go there.

    It wasn't long ago that Killington was convinced that staying open until June was the key to success. I went skiing on a Tuesday in June with 2 other friends. Killington sold 3 lift tickets that day.

    -36F this morning. Coldest day of the winter on March 6th!

    It's not unlike having the hottest day of the summer on September 6th.
