Heavy Snowstorms at Blue Hill (Boston), Mass.

II. Pressure, Wind and Temperature on Mt. Washington During the 24 Hours Prior to the Onset of Heavy Snow at Blue Hill

Charles F. Brooks and Irving I. Schell

Washington (elevation 6,288 ft. and 142 miles to the north) rises, the usually prevailing strong northwesterly wind drops sharply, and the temperature mostly shows a rise from a low value. Before heavy snow mixed or alternating with rain (4 storms), the pressure on Mt. Washington starts high and falls, the temperature is moderate, and the wind velocity is comparatively low, frequently with southerly or easterly components.
