Weather Talk: NH observatory offers way to experience wild weather

In addition to holding the world record for any non-tornado wind speed at 231 mph, New Hampshire’s Mount Washington Observatory is well known for having the worst winter weather of any regular weather recording station in the Lower 48.

Starting next year, visitors to Mount Washington will have a redesigned visitor center to greet them. The redesign will allow the approximately 100,000 annual summer visitors many new ways to experience some of the most challenging winter weather conditions on Earth, including time-lapse displays of rime deposits and, of course, the notorious, screaming winds.

Mount Washington Observatory is a private, nonprofit, member-supported research and educational institution with a mission to advance understanding of Earth’s weather and climate.
