Finally, a return to winter! The weather map this morning finds thesummit of Mount Washington sandwiched between weather systems, and whilethe Observatory is missing the majority of the heavy precipitation, steadysnow is falling on the peak. Nearly two inches fell overnight, withheavier accumulations falling at some lower elevations north of the WhiteMountains this morning. To see more information on that, you can checkour Backcountry Weather Webpage, now being updated for the season withinformation gathered by the AMC.
Winter’s return didn’t come a moment too soon, as the Observatory hostedThe Weather Channel yesterday. Enough snow and ice on the road allowedfor snowcat travel, and host Stephanie Abrams and the film crew made themost of short time thanks to changing weather conditions. The peak beganthe day with high winds, below zero temperatures, and icing, but adramatic clearing horizon allowed for clear views shortly before theyleft. The highlight of the day certainly was the deicing of the tower,and subsequently showering the camera with rime.
Here are a few more pictures from The Weather Channel Visit:
