The weather forecast for Tuesday night & Wednesday is for a significant snow event. The snow plus subsequent wind loading will lead to interesting conditions for Saturday's adventure. As the forecast models evolve over the next few days and as the forecast for the end of the week materializes I'll post more here.
[Update 2/2] The current storm is in progress, however the NWS has posted the following for this coming weekend, suggesting that we may be trying to ascend in the middle of a winter storm:
"ACTIVE WEATHER CONTINUES ACROSS THE NORTH COUNTRY WITH 2 POTENTIAL STORM SYSTEMS BRINGING MORE SNOWFALL TO THE REGION. THE FIRST WILL BE ON SATURDAY AS LOW PRESSURE DEVELOPS OFF THE CAROLINA COAST AND TRACKS NORTHEAST ALONG THE NEW ENGLAND COAST THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT. ANOTHER SYSTEM MAY AFFECT THE REGION ON TUESDAY...BUT A LOT OF UNCERTAINTY EXISTS AT THIS TIME IN REGARDS TO THE TRACK."
