Snowy Sunday

2014-10-26 19:18:00.000 – Kaitlyn O`Brien, Weather Observer/Education Specialist

 

This area of low pressure has brought some snow accumulation to the summit! Since yesterday, we’ve received just over an inch of snow, as well as plenty of rime ice. It certainly feels like a winter wonderland at 6,288 feet.

In addition to the snow, there are other happenings on the summit that indicate we are heading into the winter season. The Mt. Washington Auto Road has closed for the season, and the Cog Railway has adjusted their schedule. Furthermore, the Mt. Washington New Hampshire State Park buildings are no longer open to the public regularly, so please refer to their website for more information.

After a very successful and busy summer, I am looking forward to seeing what the rest of the year brings. After all, this will be my first winter on the summit and I can’t wait for the adventure!
