Heading for 60!

Swelling Clouds

Summer is in full gear today!

Currently, the temperature outside is a balmy 59 degrees F. After the fog cleared this morning, the clouds began to billow, and eventually blossomed into scattered showers and thunderstorms across the White Mountains.

Today and tomorrow have been declared ‘Air Quality Action Days’ by the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (NHDES), due to expected unhealthy levels of ground-level ozone over elevations of 3000 feet. While the mercury is reaching up to 60 degrees F up on the summit, temperatures in the valley today are soaring to near 90 degrees F!

Today’s daily record high for Mt. Washington is 63 degrees F, so we’ll most likely fall short of that mark. Nevertheless, the warmth is the most extreme we’ve seen on the summit since September 13, 2012, when we hit 61 degrees F.
