A cold and snowy weekend ahead!

As Tom mentioned in his comment yesterday, very cold temperatures have gripped the summit! This morning, we dropped to a frigid low of 20 degrees F below zero, which combined with strong winds to produce wind chills as low as 63 degrees F below zero. It’s hard to believe that only weeks ago, I was on vacation halfway across the country, experiencing temperatures some 85 degrees warmer!

There’s not much relief from the cold in sight, though. Temperatures on Friday are expected to plummet to even chillier levels, with even stronger winds! Wind chills could in fact drop to near the 70 below mark-now that’s winter on Mount Washington.

Even further on the horizon, a decent snowstorm could impact the region on Sunday, bringing a significant amount of light and fluffy snow to Mount Washington. We’re all ready and waiting with our shovels!
