Another Beautiful Week on the Summit!

2015-05-25 19:08:33.000 – Michael Dorfman, Weather Observer/IT Specialist


This shift has been exceptionally beautiful, with clear weather for the majority of the shift so far. With the Mount Washington Auto Road and Mount Washington Cog Railway fully open, we’re sharing this beautiful weather with many visitors to the summit as well! It’s nice to get back to some ‘warmer’ weather which, here on Mount Washington, starts when the mercury breaks 40 degrees.

While I do thoroughly enjoy the warmer weather, I really enjoyed the last part of this winter. Below is a compilation of some time lapses from the end of the winter through this spring.
