Here are some links that I have found useful while peakbagging in New England. Since I do most of my hiking in New Hampshire there are far more links for that state than for the others.

Reference Material

The National Weather Service (NWS) has put together Jetstream – An Online School for Weather which has lots of information about weather and about the NWS products. Two sections that I found particularly useful are the descriptions of the Forecast-at-a-Glance page and the Doppler radar system.

You can use the following form to check for weather in any location the NWS system knows, using either City,St or zip code.


Another excellent resource is the book Practical Mountain Weather A Guide for Hikers, Climbers and Skiers by Dr. John Papineau, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Anchorage, Alaska.
