    Default April Snow

    What are the chances for measurable snow on the summit in the coming week? The forecasts for the NC mountains are showing an extreme dip in temps starting around Thursday (lows in the mid teens on Saturday), with chances of snow....so I figured MWO would be expecting something more than a trace or half inch.

    Snow is definitely in the forecast. Check out the latest forecast here.

    The summit averages 41" in April with a record of 111". Winter could make a big time return.

    Winter storm watch is now up for Mount Washington and the rest of northern New Hampshire.

    We should know more when the winter storm warnings go. Those forecasts are generally for the mountain valleys, not the summits.

    I remember a big mid-April snowstorm in 1997, and it wasn't just confined to the mountains.

    I think that snowstrom took place about April 15 -16 . It made for great skiing on Cannon and Loon.

    Looks like 10-20" for Mount Washington area. Can't wait to see what the mountain looks like after this storm.

    It should be interesting to see how Tuck's recovers from this snow. It seems like once the Little Headwall opens up in the spring it never fills back in, but who knows what 20" of new snow will do. The Sherburne will certainly benefit.

    5.6" for the summit on the 4th. Another 2.0" as of 8am today and its been snowing continuously since then.

    The lower elevations faired very well with the prescribed 10-20" as of this morning.

    We got about 10 inches here in Maine. Really looked nice this morning. The plumber put a bigger nozzle in the furnace that heats the driveway - and it worked very well. First thing in the morning I was able to drive up the steep driveway and go for coffee. Very nice. It is completely clear and clean. Snow that came throughout the day melted on contact.
