Current Summit Conditions

Current Summit Forecast

A warm front will lift to the northeast through the region Friday as a deepening low-pressure system slides northeast through the Great Lakes and into Quebec by the evening hours. The higher summits should remain in the clouds throughout most of the day as southwesterly winds bring warm air and moisture into the region with the warm frontal passage. Rain showers will continue to be a possibility Friday and will likely be limited to the higher summits as low-level moisture lifts up and over the higher terrain. It will be another warm day for this time of year with the high temperature possibly reaching into the upper 40s, but this unseasonable warmth will be short-lived as a cold front approaches for Saturday. Winds will begin to pick up late Friday night as the strengthening surface low moves to our north, dragging a wide-spanning cold front eastward into New England. The leading edge of the cold air advection will arrive in the morning hours, bringing a decent chance of rain showers as the cold, dry air mass sweeps in. Temperatures may drop as low as the upper 20s by the evening, with wind chills plummeting as well with hurricane-force wind gusts possible. Temperatures will continue to drop Saturday night as cold air advection sticks around and dry northwesterly flow moves in. The summits should clear behind the cold front for Saturday night as temperatures drop into the upper teens. Winds will also die down toward the end of the forecast period as high pressure builds in to our west.
