At nine am, it is 38.5 degrees and rising.
87% humidity (warm enough for water to be in the air!)
The barometer is 29.5 inches of mercury and steady under a blue sky with some clouds.
Overnight, the snow froze up a bit, so the trails are a bit crunchy for now. The Cascades remain snow covered, but they are running underneath.

PLEASE be thoughtful in your parking so we can get as many people in as possible.
We've already had more than one hiker come through on the Cascades Trail. This is a light fluffy snow, so it is fun snowshoeing, but it takes some energy to cut a new path.
Enjoy the trails and send photos, if you would!

Temperature is 20.1 degrees and steady
Humidity is 86% and rising (which is saying something when it's snow!)
As for snow: 3 and 1/4 to 3 1/2, as it's drifting. That means accumulation is picking up. We've picked up nearly an inch in the last hour.

Pressure is 29.26 Hg and falling
As for snow, we now are up to 2 and 5/8ths inches.

The wind has picked up a bit; we've seen a top speed of 34 mph in the last hour, and while it is still sometimes dropping to 3 mph, it's much higher for much longer: right now I'm seeing 22 mph (and remember, the Lodge is protected by a cliff on one side).
We've seen some hikers go through over the course of the afternoon, and it's now looking as though that's the only way to travel, as Governor Patrick has signed an executive order to get all traffic off the roads as of 4 pm.
