It’s been a brisk start to the day here in New Hampshire, as it almost feels like Fall.
That’s been especially true at the summit of Mt. Washington, which saw its first below-freezing temperatures since early June. In addition, they saw their first ice glaze and SNOW of the 2023-24 season. The Mt. Washington Observatory reported that the snowflakes and ice glaze were limited to elevations above 6,000 feet. For perspective, the summit of Mt. Washington is 6288 feet, which is the highest peak in the Northeastern United States. The snow and ice glaze melted quickly today as temperatures rose above freezing.
Unfortunately for winter lovers, warm temperatures are set to the Granite State over the weekend. I don’t mind it, as we haven’t had many warm days this summer up here. I’ll probably be ready for winter after this weekend’s warmth though.
