2018/19 Winter Banter and General Discussion - We winter of YORE

Recommended Posts

So cool to have the Ridgeline at 4000ft in the sun, while it's snowing in the base area.  

Photo from @adk on Mansfield.

Sounding shows that trapped moisture well...enough to generate small needle flakes down low.

Any flakes flying near the peaks from the top of the clouds below? I've seen that on MWN before.

PF,  very cool picture.  That would be so neat to start out in the clear air, great vis and ski down through overcast into snow falling below.  I would guess this happens many times in the Alps or places with huge verticals...

Brian, was at Home Depot down in Tilton today looking at extension poles to see how high I could get my anemometer over ground level with my new weather station.  It comes mid week.  Still trying to figure if I can roof mount it.  Having it on a tripod in the field would give me more accurate readings on radiational cooling nights and I could probably get the anemometer at perhaps 10-12 feet AGL with a pole.  Going to have to dig through snow to level it and stake the tripod into the ground. Relay panel is another $160 if I keep the station down in the field and roof mount the anemometer which would put it at the near 10 meter height which is the correct height for wind measurements.  Decisions, decisions...

Can't remember seeing this much rime ice ever last year. The flipside, we haven't seen the seen in what feels like weeks. 

It's been a great stretch. Sad that it's over... At least for now (and hopefully not for long).

No didn't see any of that.  

My last run at 4pm might have been some of the most beautiful undercast with pastel sunset colors on the horizon.  Hope to post some photos later, but that was about as stunningly peaceful and beautiful you can get.  

Magical world in the mountains.

Happy happy birthday Old Man Winter! @weathafella

 

Spectacular last beach visit of the year.  Weekapaug RI and Tyler Swifts house in Watch Hill RI. Felt great to walk about a half mile on the beach, getting better. Zaator 6 months 65 lbs, absolute sweatheart.

What was that yellow shiny thing in that first pic?

We cleared out for like 15 minutes today and the atmosphere just couldn't handle it and the sky filled with low cumulus. More rain tomorrow...just when it was starting to get less wet.

It was stunning there today. No wind warm sun, started as a bluebird beach day but hazed up pretty fast.

I'm not sure I've ever seen the combination of late-day colors along with the inversion like I did this afternoon.

This stuff was insane.

Holy shit, can I share this with credit to you. From Stowe right?
