There is an official USA weather service somewhere near the top of Mt Washington. There is a hiking trail, an auto road (not sure if it's open all
year round-I don't think so), & a cog RR.
This is the 10:15 PM local time weather reading from the weather station:
This is not an unusual situation for this mountain, and what is most surprising is that it is nowhere near the highest peak at 6,288 ft in the lower 48 states re its frigid weather.
There are also webcams.
FYI: Winter Mountaineering Trips
Experience winter on Mount Washington by climbing to the summit with one of our partner climbing schools and staying overnight at our legendary summit weather station.
How was it?
At 7:15 AM local time the temp is a genuine -2° on my back porch. The good news is that ALL my mechanicals are continuing to function as I expect
them to. However there is this eerie silence in the out of doors much of which I suspect is due in part that it's a Sunday, but also that a goodly %
of cars aren't starting. As for Mt Washington, I believe the weather station is manned 24/7 [needs research if that impression is correct] and how
the staff functions re duration of a "shift" also needs research re whether they are literally locked in until Spring also needs research. I seem
to recall the roadway up to the summit is quite curvy but perhaps a snowmobile ride is doable. I don't know but I think a helicopter landing is out
of the question re crew change procedure.
The observation data shows a good amount of wind speed, but the view appears to be spectacular, i. e., there are panoramic views of other neighboring peaks. Obviously they have some way of keep the electrics going too.
It was -5 here this morning. Almost balmy by comparison.
I'd suspect that the observation station may be actually a remote one where there is non need for attendance except for routine maintenance.
