The Next Few Days + A Note On July

Hello everyone!

After a phenomenal several days hiking in the Alps, I’m back to the internet now. Because a connection strong enough to download the data I need to make a good forecast has been hard to come by, and may continue to be sparse for the rest of my trip, I’ve decided it’s probably easiest to plan on not posting until I get back to the states 7/24. For those currently supporting me on Patreon, I’ve found a way to pause that for the month since it would be wrong to charge for a service I’m unable to provide at this time. I’ll resume posting as usual on 7/24.

Before I head off on the next leg of the trip up to Germany, I’ll leave you all with a quick look at the next few days. If you want, continue scrolling down for a look at some of the pictures from this past week’s adventures.

Wednesday 7/3: Fair weather and seasonably warm temps around 80 in the mountains and 90 in Southern NH. Slightly cooler along the immediate coast.

Thursday 7/4: Basically the same as today but warmer. 85 in the mountains, low 90’s for most of the area away from the coast. Still calm/mostly sunny as high pressure meanders overhead. All clear for fireworks and other outdoor festivities.

Friday 7/5: Still mostly sunny and dry. Warmer again, mid-high 80’s for the mountains, low-mid 90’s for everyone else not on the coast. A couple SW NH spots may run into the upper 90’s. A sea breeze will bring afternoon relief to the shorelines.

Saturday 7/6: Cloudier as a cold front approaches. Expect afternoon/evening showers and thunderstorms. If enough sunshine develops in the morning to allow for building instability, some of these storms may be strong/severe. Clouds and storms will keep temps down a bit to 75 in the north and 85-90 in the south. As always, it’ll be a bit cooler near the water.

Fair weather returns Sunday and looks to continue into the first part of next week with temps near or a little above average.

Some pictures from the past week are below for those who might enjoy them.

Mountaineers ascending Aguille du Midi (sadly it wasn’t us this time)
The Aguille du Midi cable car ascending in front of the Glacier des Bossons
Stopped by a bear’s house above the Col de Balme near Vallorcine. No bears appeared to be home at the time of our visit
Met a lizard overlooking the trail to Croix de Fer
Descending from Croix de Fer
Traversing snowfields near Col de Balme
Found a small glacial erratic-to-be in le Mer de Glace

It’s been an amazing trip so far, and there’s much more to come! I’ll put some more pictures up here when I get back.

Have a great July everyone, and thanks for all your continued support of my little forecasting project and interest in Maine’s weather.

-Jack

  1. Enjoyez touts les moments dans les grands montagnes. Les temps de Maine peut d’attender jusqu’à 24 juillet — climbez bien! DW

  2. Jack, you never cease to amaze me. Have a wonderful trip and I wouldn’t care if you charged us for July, but I whole heatedly applaud your ethics and moral compass! Soak up all those mountains and all that culture. I look forward to more of your pictures and enjoy the rest of the month unfettered by forecasting. You deserve it!
