Today was the annual Mt. Washington Auto Road Bicycle Hillclimb! Congratulations to all of those who endured the 7.6 mile uphill trek. Luckily, it was a beautiful morning and the showers and convective activity held off until the late afternoon.

Towering cumulus clouds surrounded the summit throughout the day, making for variable visibility. One minute we were in the clouds and the next, we had a spectacular view of the giant tufts of moisture growing higher and higher right before our eyes.

With an area of high pressure approaching the region overnight, summits will gradually clear for tomorrow revealing a gorgeous day. Temperatures are expected to reach the low 60s at 6,288 feet, while temperatures in surrounding valley locations may peak in the mid 80s.
If you haven’t made it to the summit yet this summer, tomorrow is your day!
