Has anyone seen This? (http://www.mountwashington.org/weather/mountains.html)
The MWO seems to have expanded it by a day.

The extra day on the Mt Wash summits forecast is new to me, but the Mt Wash "outdoor sports forecast" has had longer coverage for quite a while: http://www.mountwashington.org/weather/skinh/

Looks like the NWS summits forcast is still for just one day: http://www.erh.noaa.gov/box/fcsts/PWMRECGYX.html

This is the earliest AM forecast distributed daily by OBS. Used to be only by fax to collaborative organizations, but now available to all on the web in PDF format usually NLT 3 AM.

Ken Rancourt, the head honcho up on top of the Rockpile, is making sweeping changes to their IT capacity, and we are just in the early stages of seeing his vision. Imagine his discomfort today as their phone lines were down !!!!

< waves hello> I'm Breeze, one of those "cantankerous and unreasonable" Tollhouse Attendants at the MWAR.

LOL I'm really not cantankerous, nor am I unreasonable, but don't lean on me to bend any Auto Road Policies. We have them for good reasons; whether you like those reasons.. or not... machs nichts. I like my job.

Thanks Breeze!

Tim and All,

That PDF also includes the Vertical Temp Profile from the new remote sensors placed along the Auto Road. Check the time stamp on that info for currency.
