Default Early Jan 2008

It is looking like the next week or so, starting December 31, will be wintery with two or three snow events and some mid-winter cold to go along with the snow. However, starting around Jan 5 or 6, the weather looks to warm up and give us an early January thaw.

The next few days should give a great surface to the ski hills and snow trails. They all can use a new surface after ten days of wear from the higher than usual traffic we get this time of year. All in all, it is a great start to the winter sports season.

The warm up should get us all in the mood for the NE Boat Show that starts January 12. It is a month earlier this year and at the new convention center in Boston.

Default Warming up!

The January Thaw that R2B mentioned a few days ago is now underway. After two days with below-zero temps and just one day with a high of only +6, the air over Lake Winni is now rapidly warming into the 20s as forecast - back to normal winter levels. Models still show the warmup continuing. As I write this, WLNH is announcing "Sunday will be 40" with excitement.

With that said... be veeeryyy careful on lake ice if you do try it. It hasn't had a long time to thicken, and some places (like Black Cat Shoals, and probably others) were open water until the winds calmed down last night.

That's very good advice, CLA. Yesterday's wind kept the entire lake area between our West Alton shoreline near Minge Cove and the far Wolfeboro shoreline near Jockey Cove all open water, even though the air temperature never got above 4 - 5 degs here. Overnight the wind died and the temp. dropped to around -4 degs here, and the entire area of the lake that we can see flash-froze. The air temp. has risen to 20 degs here as I am typing this (1:50 PM) and with the mild temps. expected over the weekend and into next week it's anyone's guess if the ice will hold.

Here's a photo I just took from our upper deck looking across the lake toward Wolfeboro:
