I checked the summit forecast late last night and early this morning and decided to postpone our trip until Sunday. It looks like you're in the clouds now. The summit forecast for Sunday says it will be in the clear under mostly sunny skies. It will still be windy and cold. I've found from experience that the observatory's summit forecast tends to be VERY accurate however it's only a 1 day forecast so I check it often and right up until the last minute before heading out.

On a totally clear day you can see into 4 states (ME, NH, VT, NY) and Canada. The tops of buildings in Portland ME are visible. The Atlantic Ocean can be seen to the east and the Adirondacks in NY 130 air miles away can be seen to the west. You feel like you're on top of the world there with the 130 mile 360 degree panaoramic view. I normally bring my ham radio gear with me and play radio on the 2 meter and 440 bands while I'm up there.
