Synopsis

The two severe storms that overtook Columbus on the return portion of his first voyage, when examined in the light of modern frontal theory, do not appear to have been simple circular storms, as previously thought, but disturbances marked by well developed fronts. The centers of both passed north of Columbus; he apparently experienced the warm sectors of both. The February storm seems to have had two cold fronts, and the March one a very sharp cold front. Storms of both kinds have been observed in the same portion of the Atlantic in recent years.

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

During the 24 hours before the all-snow storms (of which there were 12), the pressure on Mt. 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.
