The First Snowfall Of The Season Has Just Been Recorded on Mt. Washington


The Mount Washington Observatory officially recorded their first snowfall of the season this past weekend.

The snow came in on a cold front that featured 25 degree temperatures and hurricane force winds.

The Obervatory posted a shot of the summit with a frozen-over sign on their Facebook page, that’s now been shared over 17,000 times;

The East Coast’s first real taste of winter included a wide range of comments from both residents and tourists. Some can’t wait to strap on their ski gear, others want warm summer weather to last as long as possible.

Officials from the observatory say the first recorded snowfall usually comes toward the end of September, but snow has fallen this early in past years.
