    Summer Banter, Observation and General Discussion 2018

    I love the micro-scale differences the topography allows for in the mountains, especially on these evenings when it's a struggle to get the nocturnal inversion going. Only the lowest spots between higher terrain (along the river) are able to go calm and radiate efficiently.

    Big difference tonight if you can go calm or not... feels real good out there tonight. Comfortable air moving into the home after today's sunlight really heated up the interior. The ASOS here has gone calm causing a sharp drop into the mid-60s, while BTV and MPV remain well mixed with temps in the 70s. Even BML and HIE are still mixed. It'll probably be an up and down night with large differences even on the micro-scale with such a weak surface inversion. Places like BTV won't get past the low-70s tonight. That's a summery night.

    Yeah I hiked and it wasn't too bad but I agree I wouldn't call today COC. Low-80s with low dews is probably the limit. I think we got at least to 87F up here. My vantage point though will be much different than say someone in CT...but an afternoon of 82/45 in July would be pretty damn nice.

    Low 80s with low humidity is most certainly chamber weather in June/July/August. Once into mid-80s, even with dews like today, it's more summer-like heat. But a bunch of 82s at the ASOS with low humidity, absolutely. In mid summer, anything with dews in the 40s and 50s is pretty much Chamber weather, lol. If its really enjoyable to be outside to do activities without sweating profusely, that's pretty much the driving force behind the Chamber of Commerce weather moniker.
  7. Maybe its not that rare, but usually 30s for RH in dry heat is what I feel we see in summer. I guess you're right and it's not mid-summer. This feels more like a bookend season torch where it's just bone dry like a May or Sept torch. There are a lot of stations though getting into the 20s for RH, I guess it's not much different than Red Flag conditions minus the wind.
  8. MHT with 89/43 for only 20% RH... maybe they can tickle down into the 10s for RH? So very dry heat... New England doesn't do 85-90 with RH of 20-30% very often.
  9. Low of 44F this morning and so far up to 85F...warm summery afternoon. BML already at 87F off a low of 42F, so 45-degree rise today so far. 85F but with dew points in the 40s and only 27% RH, its about as dry a heat as we get.

    Yeah we've shot up fast this morning. Already up 35 degrees from the morning low of 44F. Currently 79F at the 11am obs. Some massive diurnal changes this month...seems like every day is a 40 degree swing back and forth.

    Quick drop tonight again...should be a different story tomorrow evening. Will be nice to have a summery evening or two. 7pm...78F 8pm...69F 9pm...59F 10pm...54F 24 degree drop in 3 hours, like a cold front just moved through. Stars glowing over the mountains on this crystal clear evening.

    What a dry air mass right now. 79/37 for 22% RH at 5pm.... chamber approved.

    One final patch of snow left on the ski trails... find the white. Still a couple widely scattered natural snow patches hidden deep in the spruce forests up high near the Stake and under the cliffs by the top of the Gondola...it is crazy how long that stuff can last when its hidden in the dark cold forest floor under the spruce's and protected from the sun by the cliffs.
  14. Heck 88/68 in a non-AC school is terribly miserable.

    I'm on top of Mansfield and it just went cobalt blue, high clouds and milky horizon off towards NH. Should clear your way in a couple hours? Perfect weather though, definitely chamber weather at 78/45. 63F up here at 4kft, for the usual 15F spread from peak to town. Hiking trails are packed.
