Today was certainly a contradiction to Mount Washington’s ‘World’s Worst Weather’ moniker. The weather on the summit was comfortable and pleasant, averaging in the upper 50s to lower 60s. It was actually a refreshing change to come back up here and escape the heat wave that New England was experiencing for the past two weeks.
The air was calm and a far cry from the extreme winds that the mountain is famous for. However, that does not mean that the day was without noteworthy weather. Wind speed actually hit zero mph today. This is a very rare event but made for a well received change.
