As Bradoween approaches, the Bradoween Steering Committee has enscripted a list of professionals to help us through the evening. Currently, the list of likely guests is larger than it ever has been for an event on Mt. Willis. We continue to monitor RSVP’s to ensure the best possible Bradoween environment.
Speaking of environment, the BSC has employed the Official Bradoween Meterologist (OBM) to monitor weather conditions leading up to the festivities. Below you’ll find the OBM’s latest assessment of the weather situation (Words in CAPS are the weather-talking-guy terms. Lower case is the translation for the rest of us).
A RESPITE IS IN ORDER THU AS FRONT STALLS SOUTHEAST OF THE AREA.
GENERAL MODEL CONSENSUS IS FOR SRN PLAINS SYSTEM TO DEEPEN ALONG THE
FRONT WELL TO THE WEST AND TRACK BACK INTO THE SRN APPALACHIANS FRI
Deepening is bad. Tracking into the Southern Appalachians is bad.
GFS FEATURES 2+ INCHES OF RAIN OVER THE WEEKEND…
ESPECIALLY IN THE MTNS…
Mountain rain is fine…we’re not mountains.
BUT TIMING REMAINS QUESTIONABLE AS THE SFC
LOW MOVES RAPIDLY TO THE MID ATLANTIC LEAVING THE TRAILING FRONT
STALLED ACROSS THE AREA BY SAT NIGHT.
If the low moves fast and the front is stalled, that means just widely scattered showers. If the low moves slow, that means more rain.
The further away the low, the less chance for rain. Move that low fast!
WILL MAINTAIN CONTINUITY FOR
NOW WITH POPS INTRODUCED FRI NIGHT AND STRETCHED THROUGH MONDAY.
That’s a cover your ass move.
GFS SHOWS SOME INDICATION OF SLOWING THE SUBSEQUENT FRONT DOWN
THROUGH TUE…BUT WILL CONT TO LEAN TOWARD ECM TIMING AND A DRY
Keep it moving. Keep it moving. Keep it moving.
Also, for the first time ever, the BSC has employed a medical professional to oversee the physical needs of the guests. Dr. Beaker will be on-hand for the party from beginning to end to tend to any injuries suffered during the footrace, field agility tests, or the Challenge.
Stay tuned for updates in the coming days.
