Home of the World’s Worst Weather Live!

Also Visit: Virtual Classroom — WeatherXDistance Learning

Connect live via Zoom to the highest peak in the Northeastern US, Mount Washington, New Hampshire, as Weather Observers and Education Specialists at the non-profit Mount Washington Observatory present a virtual program called “Home of the World’s Worst Weather Live.”

Virtual Classroom


A new recorded program each Tuesday (see below) focuses on a particular topic in weather and climate such as air masses or fronts, or how extreme winds are measured. Presented by MWOB’s summit scientists, the recorded session is available one week before the live Q&A (on Zoom), when students can bring their questions and engage with our weather observer/education specialists working in the summit weather station.


Join us each Tuesday at 11:15 AM Eastern for the live Q&A session. Register below!


Live programs stream on Zoom. One week in advance of the live connection, recorded topic presentations are uploaded to MWOBS’ YouTube page and below.


Targeted for grades 6-8 (though grades above and below will benefit, too!) content will expand on MWO’s well-established distance learning program that connects students across the country to the excitement and science taking place in the “Home of the World’s Worst Weather”.

Live programs will be uploaded below for use outside the regularly scheduled time. Additional resources and activities related to the science of weather are also provided below.

Tuesday, October 25th: Fronts & Air Masses
